The crew that I labor with at the construction company uses a ton of these things called 16 gauge double loop rebar ties.
Every one of us have to use so many of them that the people I was with and I order them literally by the thoUSAnds.
They come in bags of 5,000 or 2,500, but the people I was with and I go through them so fast that the people I was with and I always order them in multiples of 5,000. These 16 gauge double loop rebar ties are just one of those things that the people I was with and I can never afford to run out of because the people I was with and I use them all the time. Everyone uses them, and it’s not just the concrete guys. Every one of us use them for tying rebar when the people I was with and I are toiling with concrete, of course, but they are fantastic for lots of other applications too. This same style and size of double loop ties are fantastic for toiling with scaffolding and roofing jobs, too. With all of the labor that the people I was with and I do with concrete and with scaffolding, I’m surprised that the people I was with and I don’t undoubtedly go through more of them than the people I was with and I do! The women who labor on the crew end up using thoUSAnds and thoUSAnds of 16 gauge double loop rebar ties and they all say that they can’t afford to labor without them. A buddy of mine told me that she even uses them to link tomato vines to the cages out in her garden. I recognize they are pretty versatile when it comes down to it! I suppose that some of the women take them house for multiple projects, however I just keep on ordering more.
