Duct Tape and Zip-ties Have you ever had that one annoying little cousin who used to come to your house when you were younger Well I had that cousin and I dreaded the day little Zachary was to come to my house One situation that comes to mind is when I duct taped his hands together and shot him with the giant arrows that came from my Nerf Gun This wasnt done to hurt him it was just a lesson for him so he wouldnt bother me so much Now Ive never used zip-ties to torture any of my younger relatives but there are many other uses for duct tape and the little plastic strips that click end-to-end to make a strong hold otherwise known as zip-ties No tapes stick to wet surfaces or hold up to water better than duct tape It sticks to any dirty surface and it doesnt come un-done unless you un-do it Over the summer I had a Kiddy Pool for my dog to play in when it was hot out and one day it had ripped and water came pouring out of the gash One thought came to mind Go get the duct tape I rushed to the garage and grabbed the duct tape and slapped a few strips on the gash Wouldnt you know the water stopped coming out and all was fixed Duct tape is probably the most important object to have on a camping trip besides food You can even make a tent with duct tape Just tape some sticks together and there you go Ive seen people put duct tape over the rust holes on their cars to cover it up Everywhere you look you see duct tape being used to do or fix something Duct tape may not be able to fix everything but whatever cant be fixed can easily be fixed by zip-ties They are a great way to hold something together
