I've used the zip stich. I'm excited to make these and put them in my kit. Great idea!

I am not sure why you would need to use them here but just letting you know that you can buy reusable and readjustable cable ties. I suppose if you tighten too much you might be able to loosen a bit, or if you just like the sight of blood.
