How To Undo Zip Ties?

Picture Of How To Undo Zip TiesZip Ties are one major effective tools for properly securing items or materials at home or anywhere temporarily. The challenge then becomes how to undo a zip tie once it is secured. Zip ties can be very difficult to undo especially when you plan to reuse it. However, there are ways to undo a zip tie without cutting it.

How to undo zip ties? This process is a simple one. First, you must have an object with a sharp tip, for instance, a knife or a paper clip. Place the tip of the knife or paper clip in the head of the zip tie. With the knife tip in the head, disengage the locking lever and pull loose the zip tie free.

Most zip ties are not reusable. There are reusable ones which are two or three times the price of the non-reusable ones. Undoing a zip tie can come in handy, especially when you are making use of an expensive zip tie or you are short on zip ties.

 Is There A Step by Step Process Of Undoing A Zip Tie?

You can follow this process to get your zip tie unlocked without any issues.

Step 1 Locate the lock mechanism of the zip tie

A zip tie always has two ends. One end has a box shape and the other end is more of tail shape. Whenever you make use of the zip tie, you usually pass the tail end through the box-shaped end. This time you just have to locate the box end.

Step 2- Bend the zip tie free end

When a zip tie is in use, there is always a free end. You just have to bend the free end down to be able to access the lock mechanism.

Step 3- Bend the bar

When the free end is bent, it gives you more access to the lock mechanism. From here you would be able to see a bar in the box end, which is where the free end passes through. Using a knife(as described above) or a paperclip press down the bar you find in the box end.

Step 4- Pull the free end back through the box end

Pressing down the bar, use your other hand to pull back the free end through the box end. Your zip tie is free!

The above method of undoing a zip tie is one of the easiest means. Even though with constant undoing the zip ties become weaker. It is important you note that this method is effective for most zip ties but may not work for some. This is as a result of how the teeth gear of the zip tie is formed.

How to Unzip Files Without WinZip? 5 Easy Ways To Do It

The compression of files frees up storage space on a hard drive. ZIP files are encrypted so information sent as an email attachment is more secure. The decreased size of a compressed file speeds email transmission.

ZIP File Disadvantages

Creating ZIP Files in Windows 7, 8, and 10

In the three most recent Windows operating systems a ZIP file can be created in five steps.

  • To combine multiple files create and name a new folder
  • Move the desired files to the new folder
  • After all the files have been moved right click the folder you created
  • Choose “send to” to open a second menu
  • Click “Compressed (zipped) folder”

It will take a little time for your ZIP file to be created. You can compress a single file using the same steps.

How to Unzip Without WinZip Windows 10

WinZip is a program that facilitates the opening of ZIP files in Windows. Here is how to unzip without WinZip Windows 10

  1. Find the desired ZIP file
  2. Open the file explorer by double-clicking the desired file.
  3. Locate “Compressed Folder Tools” at the top of the File Explorer menu

How to Open RAR Files Without Winzip Windows 7

A Roshal Archive Compressed file (RAR) is an alternative to ZIP files. Let me apologize for the misleading header. According to in5stepstutorials.com RAR files cannot be opened in Windows 7, 8, or 10 without the installation of a utility like WinZip or 7-Zip. For that reason, 5 steps assert that ZIP files are the better choice for creating compressed files.

How to Open a 7z File Without WinZip Mac

A file with a 7z extension was created using the open source file compression software 7-Zip. Opening a 7z file without WinZip when using a Mac requires downloading the free multi-format compressed file opening utility The Unarchiver.

Just a Reminder

The pros of compressed ZIP files save space on a hard drive. Attaching a ZIP file to an email offers multiple advantages. The cons include increased risk of file corruption and ZIP files take longer to open.

In Windows 7 WinZip is not needed to unzip files. When deciding between using RAR or ZIP to create a compressed file go with ZIP. Windows 7-10 are incapable of opening a RAR file without downloading an unzip utility. To open a 7z file with Mac OS without WinZip you must install The Unarchiver.

Adapting to Change

Change may be scary, but most of us agree to the fact that change is a necessary movement in order for us to survive our very innovative and challenging generation. As said in fowmedia:

Change is hard in any aspect of life. When it comes to changing how a company functions every day, both leaders and employees are bound to face challenges. However, in the wake of digital transformation, change is necessary. If employees don’t keep up, they will be left behind and chances are digital transformation will fail. As I’ve written about previously, CMOs, CIOs, CTOs, and CEOs all have a role in leading the digital transformation. It is their responsibility to sell the transformation to employees. So, what can leadership do to ensure their employees are able to keep up?

Ketogenic Diet: Did I Do Something Wrong?

Throughout my office life I have always been buying food during lunch time either at the cafeteria or somewhere near our office building. Me and my other colleagues really enjoy lunch time since we can relax and have good conversation over good food. But of course there are times that we eat the same food choices that are available or have some food delivered if we don’t have much time to eat out. Usually these foods are of course fast food which we can eat on a fast pace so we can have more time to rest and chat. One day (after new year) me and my colleagues came back to work with our office attires almost bursting. Everyone seemed to have a good holiday break and ate a lot obviously. We agreed to find a diet plan so we can lose some weight and try to be healthier too. Someone suggested Keto diet and we started to try it out as everyone in the group was on board.

So Far So Good, But Then…

We started to pack our lunches so we will no longer have to be tempted on the food choices that we usually eat before, the fatty and unhealthy ones. So far everything seems fine, for the first three weeks we already notice some changes in our body and losing weight a little. I was really happy for the group and for myself of course as it seems that we are doing it right. Little by little we are on our way to ketosis. According to Medical News Today, below are some facts on ketosis:

  • Ketosis occurs when the body does not have sufficient access to its primary fuel source, glucose.

  • Ketosis describes a condition where fat stores are broken down to produce energy, which also produces ketones, a type of acid.

  • As ketone levels rise, the acidity of the blood also increases, leading to ketoacidosis, a serious condition that can prove fatal.

  • People with type 1 diabetes are more likely to develop ketoacidosis, for which emergency medical treatment is required to avoid or treat diabetic coma.

  • Some people follow a ketogenic (low-carb) diet to try to lose weight by forcing the body to burn fat stores.

On the fourth week, I felt a little different than my usual self. I was also surprised that instead of losing, I have gained more weight. Well I have learned that there have been some wrong stuff that I have been doing. The food choices are right but I am consuming more than the correct amount of some foods that I eat.

Back on Track

After that I felt a little disheartened but I found a way to continue with what I am doing and get it right. I tried to find a cookbook for Keto so that every food preparation is perfect. I came across shorcutketo.com and it has great and honest review on amazing cookbooks that I have also shared with my colleagues. Of course every now and then I continue to check if I’m in the right track through more research. With this I also discovered that there could be some side effects from this form of diet which is commonly known as the keto flu which is pretty much normal and there’s nothing to worry about. According to Doc’s opinion:

The symptoms associated with ketosis are most often temporary and will usually pass in a couple of days. Therefore, they are sometimes called  “ketosis flu.” Some of these symptoms are caused by dehydration, and therefore intake of salt and water may be helpful.

For me, it’s okay to commit mistakes as long as you get back up again and not be scared to continue to achieve your goal.

Time to Toss Your Old Mattress

Me and my younger sister used to sleep over at our older brother’s house quite often before I got married. He only have a one bedroom apartment so whenever we come over he usually sleeps in the couch so that me and my sister can share the bed. We recently came to visit and was planning to do our usual bond; watch movies, play console games, board games, pizza party and of course annoy each other. When bed time came we noticed that the mattress that he has is no longer in good condition. Still, me and my sister tried it out and unsurprisingly we sank in the middle. It was quite funny at first but it was also alarming for our brother. The next morning we weren’t really able to get a good sleep. We then talked to our brother and mentioned the condition of the mattress. He said that he knows of course and was actually planning to replace it soon, well in fact he mentioned that he already ordered one and just waiting for it to be delivered.

Sleep Deprived Brother

My big brother mentioned that for weeks he has been experiencing drowsiness, low energy, he easily gets sick, have baggy eyes, dry skin as he has been tossing and turning all night as he is struggling to get some sleep. He even transfers to the sofa sometimes just to try to get some more sleep but then still, he is deprived of a good night’s sleep.  According to WebMD:

When you get less sleep than you need, your body does not just “adapt,” but rather you may begin to experience symptoms of sleep deprivation. Your judgment and reaction time may slow, you may experience memory loss, depression, a weakened immune system, and pain. It can be especially dangerous to drive when you’re sleep deprived since focusing and keeping your eyes open can become difficult.

 

Benefits of a Good Night’s Sleep

With our without Science’s back up we all know the great effects of a good night’s sleep to our body. If we have uninterrupted sleep we feel refreshed in the morning, have more energy, feel lighter and have a good mood throughout the day. According to Healthy Sleep:

Scientists have gone to great lengths to fully understand sleep’s benefits. In studies of humans and other animals, they have discovered that sleep plays a critical role in immune function, metabolism, memory, learning, and other vital functions.

Evidently, our brother’s move to toss his old mattress is a definite win for him (and for us too!). When me and my younger sister was about to leave our brother’s place, the mattress has arrived. Of course we wanted to see it so we waited for it to be unboxed and it was worth the wait, it has a nice overall look and was really comfortable. My brother mentioned that he found it through mattressbattle  he said that this site really helped him to find what he was looking for. It was a great purchase and he can’t wait to have a good slumber with his new mattress.
