Recycling Zip Ties

Whenever I buy something that’s wrapped with zip ties, I don’t cut them off and toss them. Instead, I remove the ties by inserting the tip of my pocketknife under the ratcheting mechanism of the ties and pulling the end out. I can reuse the ties and never worry about overtightening one because I can reposition it. — Phil Kuhns
