Check the quality of the stainless. If it is not 316, it will corrode.

Check out the price too. I haven't seen them in New Zealand but they look expensive.

With good quality SS hose clamps being in the 3 dollar and up range, I would think a 10 pack of 6" SS ties would be in the " Hide the reciept from wife " range

Stainless ties also tend to have razor-sharp edges that can cut into wires not run all that neatly, since they are designed to hold cables down - not bundles of wire.

AFAIK, although UV kills them relatively quickly and there isn't any source of UV down below, there is no reason plastic ties won't last a long time.

Denise, just for the record, did you know that you can buy the normal hose clamp strip material and loose screw units to make clamps as big or as small as you want them?

Those straps would come in handy attaching a mounting board oriented vertically to my pedestal. Presently, I am using a couple of plastic wire ties which need replacing from time to time. Thanks for the tip.
