Zip Ties No More: DMC’s LaceLok Tool


KITPLANES avionics guru Larry Anglisano was at the Aircraft Electronics Association show last week and caught up with DMC Tools for a demo of the LaceLok. It’s a combination of zip ties and conventional lacing methods in a pre-fabricated form. A trigger tool tightens and then snips the ends of special lacing bundles that use a low-profile buckle to maintain the clamping force. Waxed lace, used for years in aviation, is easier on wire bundles than plastic zip ties, which can eventually wear through the insulation.


  1. $650 for the starter kit? Really?
    Price per lace is reasonable, but I can’t justify the start-up costs of using them.
