Twists, tag and ties


Journal Article

Gathering things together into a compact package brings easeness in so many ways. Classically, people use a piece of string or rope and knot the ends of it so as to make a package. However, this method is not being easily mastered as well as reversing it to unpack. Thus, inventors have come up with the idea of "binding tie" as this comes in with two purposes. First, it may be used to confine and constrict a single object and lastly, it may hold two or more objects together. This and other techniques such as the use of fasteners have been invented to easily get a grip on many things needed to be transported.
