Win These Nite Ize Gear Ties, Become Envy of All Your Friends [Updated]



UPDATE: Thanks to everyone who participated! I had a great time reading all your comments. Congrats to Mitchell Chin (youtube user: Sportwin) and Mark Fleser (youtube user: markfleser) on winning a small stack of assorted Gear Ties from Nite Ize. If you’re one of those two people, check your youtube account, I just messaged you!

If you missed my gushing review of these brilliant Gear Ties from Nite Ize, check it out here to see what all the fuss is about.

I love these little rubber-bonded-over-pliable-steel pieces. I use them so often and they work so well, they’ve become one of my favorite new products.

Well, I got to thinking that you, our dear CoM readers and viewers, might love them too. So I asked Nite Ize if they’d be willing to give some away to you, and they responded with a resounding “yes!” So, if you’d like to qualify to win some of these little wonders, you only need to do two simple things:

  1. Visit and subscribe to our Youtube channel
  2. Leave a comment below with your Youtube username

That’s it. Pretty simple. I’m going to pick two winners at random from the comments to win a small fortune’s worth of Gear Ties (remember you must also be subscribed to our Youtube channel). I’ll announce the winners on Friday.

    If I was a middle age man trying to look younger by sporting a pony tail, I would really need these, but since I’m not, I could really use these as my cables are taking over my house!

    If Cult of Mac writers Erfon Eliza and Buster Heine combined, they would need Gear Ties to hold them back…

  32. Leslie D. Martin says:

    These look interesting. Zip ties are a pain when you need to adjust your cables, velcro attracts lint and other crap. The only question is cost… – AlaskaHome1959

  36. Kcassidys says:

    Holy Wow! These are the coolest things ever to hit a cable snarl! WANT! these make it safe to crawl back under a desk again, without worrying of rogue cable attacks!


  37. Kcassidys says:

    The nite Ize website lists them at surprisingly reasonable prices, considering they are reusable. Not far off velcro prices.

    and they’re sooooo much more useful than velcro. i used to use velcro all the time and these are FAR superior. especially in dusty situation cause velcro gets so nasty

    I have a backpack FULL of cords, and a hook on my wall I hang the ones I use most often, these would be crazy useful!

    I have no funny insight so I’ll tell my favourite terrible joke.

    Why was the ink drop sad? Because its father was in the pen and didn’t know how long the sentence would be.
