Answered: Zipties

Are we allowed to use zipties on our robot? I thought that VEX used to sell them, but I can’t find them on the website anymore. Even though VEX doesn’t currently sell them, if they used to sell them, then couldn’t we use zipties identical to those old ones according to <R7.b>? And if we can’t, then are college teams allowed to use zipties as part of their plastic allowance according to Appendix F, Robot Rule Modifications, 1.a)?

VEX does sell zipties as part of the official product line, thus they are legal for use. You can find them here, here and here, all linked from the bottom of this page.
