The Perfect Collaboration

Before he founded Rip-Tie, CEO Michael Fennell was the manager of a film and broadcast video equipment rental facility that catered to Film and Television Professionals. Michael noticed the need for a solution in this fast paced industry to organize cables for improved safety, professionalism and efficiency. He set out to introduce high quality cable management products for the marketplace. Michael received a patent for the Original Rip-Tie CableWrap and started manufacturing in San Francisco. That business has now grown to have over 20 employees and thousands of customers worldwide.
Rip-Tie's first choice was VELCRO® Brand Hook and Loop because of its superior quality, durability and consistency. Now that we had stock of VELCRO® Brand Fasteners locally, customers found us and a second business started as a VELCRO® brand distributor. When Rip-Tie sold it's first roll of VELCRO® Brand Fasteners 30 years ago, a different kind of business relationship between Rip-Tie and Velcro Companies was started and has grown to become one of the top five industrial distributors in the country.
You can count on us to have 10 colors on many items in stock and widths from ¼" all the way out to 60"€Â. There are many different choices of hook and loop combinations for your project. Please call us with your questions and we'll be happy to help you get started with samples and advice. We currently have 30 plus years of VELCRO® Brand Hook and Loop experience.
