What are you trying to say?!?!?!? Lol. I would use wire sleeving over zip ties. And if "twit n lock's" are garbage bag ties then I dont recommend it cause of the metal inside of them shorting out or w/e.

^therye plastic now (except at the greocery stores).

Id rather use Zip ties, if you need to you can cut them. sleeving is just too much a of a process.

Sleeving is time consuming, but does it look awesome when done correctly, and really shows an individuals attention to detail (or obssesive/compulsive nature).

Really though, if you are not a patient person, don't bother.

Sleeving does take a long time to get it right but it look so much better than bare wires with a zip/twist tie on it.
