Cable Tie 4 inch 18LBS, 100pcs/Pack - Black
Organize that tangled mess behind your computer desk or home theater rack with these simple nylon zip cords. Just zip and snip. Easy and economical. Sold in 100 piece bulk packs. Each cable tie can hold up to 18 lbs.
I suddenly started encountering cable ties that broke for no reason, but didn't know which brand I was using out of my stock until my second order from Monoprice. Then I kept track of them.
Some just break for no apparent reason, just while wrapping them into a loop.
Frequently, one is putting a cable tie in a tight, hard to reach, area. It is a struggle to wrap around the object and get the end inserted. Then the darn thing just goes POP before one even puts pressure on it, and one has to start all over again. At that time, Monoprice gets cursed soundly and deservedly.
Other times, the cable tie is used to keep items tucked away from possible snags or abrasion. For 45 years, I have never seen a cable tie fail after being set. EXCEPT MONOPRICE. For me, they just aren't worth messing with.
My best guess is that the manufacturer of the raw nylon that is molded into the cable ties has lots of impurities that cause weak and brittle spots. Visual inspection show nothing.
These customer complaints have been going on for years. The Monoprice Product Management Team has not bothered changing suppliers or fixing the problem.
These cable ties are very cost effective where they are easy to install and you don't care if a few go to pieces later.
CONS: Totally unacceptable quality unless all you need is cheap
PROS: super cheap
CONS: Extremely high failure rate
PROS: QUICK SERVICE, GREAT PRICE
The cable tie mounts are no better, i installed about 30 of them putting a home theater in an exercise room. The adhesive has failed on about half of them after 2 years. Obviously they are not using 3m tape!
PROS: They are really cheap
CONS: They break in cold weather
Both this and the 40lb wrap, had the same quality manufacture.
PROS: Price was so low, I thought is was an error!
PROS: They work as advertised. Price is less than local stores.
PROS: Great quality at great price
