Hello, found most small tie wraps are garbage, came up with alternative. Thought I’d share.
Used 1/4" Ring Terminal 12-10 GA connector
Soldered joint shut
Added solder to end on both sides (to remove sharp edges)
Used 18-16 GA Moisture Resistant Tap Connector
Used small file to open center
Securely locks belt & works as tensioner
