Cateye Cable Ties - Australia

Does anyone know where to get some cable ties for my Cateye micro wireless?

They need to be 20cm long and under 3.6mm wide.

I can't find them anywhere in hardware stores and the cateye website won't ship to australia

Long skinny ones are harder to find.
Join two shorter ones together. Jaycar should have some that will work.

You can get as many (or as few) as you like on ebay, get a friend to order if you don't have an account:

http://preview.tinyurl.com/chhw65h - that link will open a preview so you can see that it's a rediredt to ebay, just in case you worry about this sort of thing.

I've had the same problem. I ended up just getting the narrowest ties I could find locally, and then use nippy cutters to trim them lengthwise.
