made me a new set of jumper cables the other day...as if I had spare time. would have been cheaper to buy some, but these are 24 feet long.

I had to push the wife's van out of the parking spot and into the middle of the drive, blocking traffic the other day. this set will reach the vehicle parked behind them, without all that extra effort! Hopefully there won't be too much voltage drop over the extra length. Since I bought a new battery for her van, hopefully it will be a while before I have to use them to test them out.

what I don't know is...what to use in lieu of cables ties that would be more user friendly.
I didn't necessarily want to use electrical tape to hold the two cables together.

I have access to 3m C130, but don't know if this is the same as you are talking about.

I've used this stuff and it pretty amazing. When you wrap it on itself and wait a few hours, you can't peel it apart.
