Hot Toys DeLorean Time Machine –
(4 x White and 1 x Black recommended)

These tiny zip ties have been designed to simulate the real thing. Installing them is easy – just peel and tie your micro zip ties in place!

These mini cable ties were originally designed as a mod for the 1:8 DeLorean Time Machine model by Eaglemoss. But they are equally suitable for modding any other 1:8, 1:6 replica model that would benefit from adding tiny zip ties, such as the Ghostbusters Ecto-1 by Hero Collector, or the Hot Toys DeLorean Time Machine

They are available in three colours: black, white and clear.

What’s included:

  • 1 x Pack of 40 mini cable ties in two lengths (30 long and 10 regular)
  • Illustrated set of installation instructions

To fit these mini cable ties you will need:

  • A good set of fine point tweezers
  • Good eyesight, patience, and a steady hand 😄
Tip: Gluing is optionalbut recommendedfor a more permanent hold. A tiny dot of Loctite Super Glue placed in a discreet place behind each head is very effective, best applied using the tip of a cocktail stick.

Where do the cable ties go in the DeLorean Time Machine?

Here’s a collection of photos showing the exact location of all the cable ties (both black and white): http://bit.ly/cable-ties

Thank you to Todd at http://mybttfdelorean.com who was kind enough to snap and share these photos of the original DeLorean ‘A’ car itself on display at the Petersen Museum in Los Angeles, California.

Note: Given their micro scale, these cable tie mods are designed for cosmetic purposes only. They are intended for use in 1:8 scale modelling projects and should therefore not be expected to perform as a traditional cable tie in larger scale applications.
All other model parts and accessories shown in the photos outside of the ‘What’s included’ list above are not included and are shown purely for demonstration and application purposes.

    Only just started the DELOREAN, had these for some time, only just used them last couple of days. Excellent product. Very easy to use makes a very Big difference to the model found a wire put cable tie on it. Just ordered more today. Can't wait to use the other items i ordered from Mike lane, Big thank you Mike lane

  2. Michael Purdy (verified owner)

    These cable ties are much more accurate in size and scale and will definitely give your Delorean a decidedly more realistic look. Please note these these are a bit fiddly as they are quite tiny and take a bit of practice and patience. I recommend a few minutes of meditation before working with these. It will help to get you in the "zone" and hopefully alleviate any frustration that may occur whilst working with them. Thanks Mike for another great mod.

    Wow these are some small cable ties lol but they look great another great mod from mike lane

  4. Matthew Harp (verified owner)

    These tiny cable ties are truly fantastic. Yes it takes patience but it’s 100% with it. I ordered one set to see how they worked and then ordered more including the black ties. These cables remedy the issue of the inaccurate and oversized cable ties but also really make your model pop with added realism.

    The white and black mini cable ties are awesome! Beautifully done and engineered! Cannot wait to use them.

  6. Kurt Ahrens (verified owner)

    These things are fantastic! And I know they are not meant to hold the cables together structurally... but they do. Handle with care while installing and you'll find they have sufficient strength to hold your wiring together. I add a small drop of CA after binding and they are locked in with no chance of slipping. No need for anything further to bind/hold your wiring together. A must have!

    Mike, again exceeds himself, with these mini cable ties. The detail and craftsmanship that goes into this product is phenomenal, as they are so small and delicate, but I had a great time installing them on my Delorean, and now it looks even more amazing than the standard black wrap-around wire we were provided. Thanks again Mike for making my car look even more amazing!

    A BIG thank you! I’ve been modelling for over 60 years and this man is the poster child of customer service! I had ordered many items for my BTTF DeLorean. I had received the white tie wraps and apparently one of these packs escaped Mike’s quality control inspection. I emailed Mike my issue with the wraps and that next day he apologised for the defect and promptly sent out a replacement pack(s). Like I said he is the ‘Poster Child for Customer Service’, thank-you Mike.

    Just started to use them, very good addition .
    Well done Mike.

    A must for this model,thanks Mike

    After messing about cutting insulation tape into strips which unraveled overnight, these cable tidies are brilliant, the scale looks spot on the delivery was reasonably quick I'm very impressed.

  12. Paul Holder (verified owner)

    I wasn't expecting to be as bowled-over by this product as I actually am! In fact I hadn't actually intended to buy these at all but, after having placed two orders with Mike and doing some other mods, I came to realise that I was too far down the line to "cheap out" now. I am so glad I got this product because the difference these tiny pieces make to the visual impact of the model is truly astounding. I am only about 20% of the way through placing them around the vehicle but the effect is already obvious, I can't believe that I thought I could do without them. Not only do they look great but they are also really nice to work with, I am finding the process of installing them to be most cathartic! I have no issue with recommending these as an essential mod for the DeLorean build.

    The best miniature cable ties I've found around the world. Great that it comes in two sizes.

  14. Graeme Kingston (verified owner)

    Great addition to add realism to the model. Exceptional quality comes as standard.

  15. ciro.de.francesco

    Non conoscevo l' esistenza di mike lane molto interessante ci sono particolari bellissimi sicuramente li comprero'

  16. Kevin Bryan (verified owner)

    Amazing quality, and really help the interior of the car look like it should. A quality set of needle nose tweezers really helps with the installation of these, but really is worth the effort fitting them. They look fantastic.

  17. maartenvermaak (verified owner)

    Very tiny, but with some practice these are good to handle. They look asome.

  18. Brian MacNutt (verified owner)

    The cable ties are exquisite and in perfect scale. Way to go, Mike!

  19. James Roberts (verified owner)

    A must have. Nothing out there comes close and they really set the car off.

  20. Fred Fuchs

    These add to the authenticity of the model like no other.

  21. ALESSANDRO_SPILLER (verified owner)

    Un altra MOD di sicuro effetto che conferisce al modello tutto un altro aspetto,come sempre di ottima qualità, se volete che i cavetti della Delorean siano identici al modello del film non potete farne a meno,vi consiglio di prenderne almeno due confezioni, come sempre Mike non si smentisce, solo il meglio per la nostra Delorean

  22. Michael Santana (verified owner)

    I'm not far in the issues yet to use these zip ties, but I can tell by these are true quality items. Thank you for helping my dream car come true!

  23. Ricco Streitmatter (verified owner)

    Unbelievable how tiny these ties are, a must for that clean realistic look for the cables. Get some precision tweezers and some reading glasses!

  24. DJ_BTTF (verified owner)

    These cable ties are great - as great as all mods from Mike Lane! I enjoy the details again and again. These tiny cable ties actually work like their big role models.

  25. jameser88 (verified owner)

    Great quality item that adds another level of realism to the model. The originally supplied cableties are the wrong colour and far too big which ruins the DeLorean cabin. Like all of Mike's mods these are essential for your build.

  26. International_playas (verified owner)

    This guy has incredible mods, he puts so much love and detail in his products and these cable ties are a must have for your Delorean.

  27. Laurent M (verified owner)

    I follow mike since the beginning and this one is the hardest one made by mike! We suffer trying to put hiroboy cable tyre on the car, from that mike decide to take time to make this mod even better and easier to fit! Thanks mike to improve all the time the car.
    I can tell the mod and the even more the guy is, wait for it , awesome !

  28. Michael Lipscomb (verified owner)

    I keep coming back every time something new is released. The quality and response time is superb. The quality is MUCH higher than what you received from the model manufacturer. Great work Mike!

  29. Enrico Del Prete (verified owner)

    Beside all the incredible mods Mike does with dedication and passion...i think Mike is the real deal: honest, friendly and talkative and understanding. Qualities that for sure are very hard to find singularly...here they are all together within him! So the comment is big thank you for being YOU

  30. Paul Allen (verified owner)

    Having purchased every single one of Mike Lane's Mods, I can honestly say that the man is a genius, and his mods shine accordingly...!
    I love the attention to detail of the cable ties.

  31. Sven Lutz (verified owner)

    They are incredible, the scale is awesome. These mini cable ties are so freaking tiny, and they looking so awesome in the cockpit !

  32. timmcleod6243 (verified owner)

    Nice addition to the detail of the build. Going to order some of the black ones soon.

  33. gwtmillar (verified owner)

    Another very cool product from Mike and I have recently also ordered a set of black cable ties too

  34. Scottie Campbell (verified owner)
