I purchased cable PID 5638 as a permanent connection for my new 70" 3D HDTV so kids could connect their Wii & Xbox occasionally to the TV as we mounted the TV so close to the wall with a low-profile mount, that it does not allow us to plug-unplug cables. Using five of these right-angled (90 degree) RCA adapters (PID 7233) that I spot-soldered to this cable, along with Mono-price's Velcro-Wire-wraps (PID 5809), allow us to grab the cable and pull it down when in use, and put it back under the TV quickly and easily when not in use. This cable combination is virtually impossible to come unplugged accidentally.
PROS: Gold plated, makes it easy to spot-solder if a permanent connection is desired. Solid molded connector, makes an excellent electrical connection.

I needed to move my sub-woofer deep into the corner against the wall, and the RCA audio cable I was using was a high-quality coaxial cable, so it previously stuck out the back of the sub-woofer cabinet by at least three inches (sub-woofer is NHT's classic "Ten" which is a powered sub-woofer about the size of a large laser printer!). This worked great.
PROS: Very low price and remarkably good quality (for that price).
Not very good quality. 4 of the 8 units I ordered pulled apart with any tension on the wires. Normally Monoprice stuff is pretty good, but these particular items aren't up to the task. I've had to pull my dashboard apart three times to replace these things (on the stereo) as they come apart.
Thank you for your review and my apologies for the issues you have experienced with PID 7233. A shame these didn't work out for your needs.. I will be sure to pass this info along to our product team so they can look into the matter further. Thanks for your support and sorry again for any inconvenience this may have caused. Should you have any questions, feel free to contact us!

Exactly what I needed!
These are awesome! Receiver would not fit in the cabinet with the glass doors closed without these.
Just bought a 4K flat screen TV and put it flat against the wall (or nearly so). Has HDMI inputs and some old RCA inputs. The latter are absolutely necessary to hook up an old Nintendo 64 to the 4K screen, of course! (Crazy.) But the 4K I bought had the RCA connectors coming out perpendicular to the back of the TV, so any standard wires would have been crushed or pushed the screen away from the wall. So I got these, and all is well in MarioLand. These things are so small that there's no loss of quality, either, not that you can tell with a N64. And you can't argue with the price.
To assist me in having no cords showing behind our TV, these 90 degree angled plugs were perfect. Once attached, we were able to insert our cords and use zip ties to bunch the wires and keep them out of view.
