    Hi Tobin...

    I think you use Thomas & Betts cable ties to secure the power inflator to the corrugated hose but I'm not sure which size / part number to get. Appreciate the help and great products!

    Given that we buy them in bags of 1000, I'm pretty sure the PN we use won't help you much. :)

    It's possible to buy these 100 at time from McMaster Carr, but it's a different PN,
    You Might try some of the cable tie sites on the Web. Cable ties and More, unlimited Ties etc.

    What you want is a UV resistant tie with a stainless tang for a bundle dia of about 1.25-1.375"

    These aren't the easiest thing to source in small numbers.

    got those too, super nice for regulator mouthpieces, not good for much else in my experience. Can't be cinched down all that tight without slipping which is kind of annoying

    The Stainless tang in the T&B ties is an important feature.
