The past few years most aviation Engine and Component manufacturers and overhaul shops (Fuel controls, Hyd manifolds etc..) have moved to pre-twisted crimped safeties. Easier to install, hard to screw up. They also serve as warning to Techs, cut one and you stand a good chance of voiding any warranty.

Still on the hanger floors you won't find anyone using the the Pre-twisted stuff. There is a certain pride in Correct-clean-tight safetying.
