Partly that, but mainly that they need cutting and remaking every time I remove them. It is me being a bit of a perfectionist, too, to be honest!

Edit: I'm fed up with slicing my hands on the cut ends too! But I probably ought to buy some flush cut side cutters to solve that!

Thought about them but if I cut them to size, then refitting them would be difficult. Or I'd have to leave flappy bits to allow me to refit them. Thanks for the suggestion though.

Well, I've found everything I need. A combination of:

Push-In Swivel Clip Cable Tie - Female from JET PRESS
and
Push-In Swivel Cable & Pipe Clips - Male 90° from JET PRESS

Sadly, all in bags of 100!

Anyone want some? Lots of them?!

Excellent that's reduced the price to a measly £75 each for the sizes I need! In all seriousness, I've emailed them to see if they will do small numbers.
