Oh, please. We're not THAT careless.

Careless or not, trying to avoid scraping your hands on the tie will slow down coiling cables at the end of the night.

I don't want to have to say " oh yours are the ones with the blood on them".

I've been using these silicon hair ties for a couple years now with good results.  They retain their color and stay in place really well.  I just keep looping/twisting them over the ends until they aren't loose any more.  I usually loop them over about 5 times, I think.  They're stretchy enough to loop over big Switchcraft XLR ends.   I color code and group items.

Heat shrink. I use blue for my XLR & Red for DMX, male end.



Rob- Where'd you get those little bungee ties for the cables?  I've not seen those before.

I've seen those bungee ties on Planet Waves guitar cables but didn't know you could get them on their own.  I've love to get some too.  They don't stick to carpet or each other like Velcro ties do.  I do have trick line on my larger speaker and power cables but these, or Velcro, are quicker for the tons of XLR cables you have to put away at the end of a gig.

Planet Waves cable ties from Amazon. $8.95 for a pack of 10. Handy as heck.

I hate those Velcro strips. I have a few here & there but I generally avoid them.

It would be a "stretch" -- double entendre intended. Seriously they come in at least two different sizes but I think mine would wrap around a 2" truss just barely.

A pack of 50 small bungee balls is about $12.00 - $15.00. Just like what the tent guys use, only smaller.

Hmmm I've used them on the handle of an LS800P but a 2" truss might be a bit big. I have a gig tonight and I'm using my 2" truss. When I drop the truss at the end of the night I'll give it a go and let you know how it works out tomorrow.
