Protect Against Short Circuits Using Cable Ties

A short circuit occurs when an electrical current travels down the wrong path causing excessive current flow through the power source. One of the most common causes of short circuiting is damage to wire and cable as a result of vibration and shock. A simple way to prevent vibration and shock damage is to secure cabling and wires using cable ties.
