I first came across magnetic zip ties while scrolling through TikTok and ended up ordering a 14-pack from Amazon for $15. I’m always looking for easy-to-use organization hacks, and this seemed like a quick and inexpensive option for decluttering all of my chargers.

I used to throw all my chargers in a drawer. They got clumped and tangled and I forgot which charger went with which device. Wrapping the chargers with these magnetic zip ties has kept them all separate, making it so much easier to grab what I need without picking up a tangle of tangled cords.

The magnetic design is simple but groundbreaking

These First ties are made of silicone with magnets on each end. They have a decent amount of stretch so you can wrap anything tightly and securely. The magnets are strong enough that they have never accidentally broken apart.

I prefer these rubber bands because they are more secure and I’ve never had them break from too much stress. I also tend to lose regular twist ties, but these are so brightly colored I’ve never misplaced them.

The magnets offer a simple yet game-changing upgrade over traditional ties and I will never go back to regular ones. I have purchased several packs and have shared them with family members who are equally impressed.

You can also use them for more than just cables.

The ties are great for hanging things on the fridge or for tying up a loaf of bread if you lost the twist tie that came with it.

Because the bands are attached with magnets, any metal will stick to them. Sometimes when I toss a cord in my bag, a loose hair clip snaps into place. They are also attached to other items I keep in drawers, like scissors.

The final result

These magnetic cable ties are a quick, easy and inexpensive way to organize and de-tangle your chargers or other cables. For $15 I was able to reorganize my drawer and still have a few ties left. I recommend magnetic cable ties as an alternative to rubber bands or paper ties.
