There's a special place in hell for people who don't flush cut cable ties, leaving wiring looms like rose bushes. Curse

I use a pair of nail clippers to finish off the tie wraps - you can crop them really close and has a very slight curve.

Re #53:

Thanks for the tip!  I'll use that in future (although I might have to purloin Mrs V's clippers).

I really like my Wera Tool Check Plus. It's pretty compact and beautifully engineered, you just have to shop around as the price seems to vary a lot.

That was the only criticism at my post-build inspection. I now use the end cutting nippers from the wallet of posh pliers.

PS: When we're striking theatre sets everyone tries to save money by undoing the vast numbers of cable ties... until they've had enough and start cutting. But sometimes not everyone changes at the same time ... :-)

we have solved that problem, we only use 3 inch screws and impact drivers or Gaffa , the one exception is when using material to cover things, then its a staple gun set to Half pressure, and the same place in hell that is reserved for the none cable tie flushers is also reserved for those that leave broken bits of staple legs sticking out of flats after the strike.
