Unfortunately, I bought these thinking I could wrap thick bundles of cables, but this product cannot handle it. I've bought similar products where it's one continuous strand of wrapping material, so you could wrap just about any thickness of cables.
This is NOT a spiral wound wrapping. It only looks like spiral. So it is limited in diameter. It does come with a tool that allows you to quickly place the wrapping around your cables. So that is nice.
Practical + Professional Looking Product... but why only 1.5m?
These spiral wraps are easy to install, practical, and look nice. The product itself gets 5 stars, but I subtracted 1 star because Monoprice only sells them in 1.5 meter length. Why? It's silly you make us buy several packages of these spiral wraps, especially since you ship a zipper tool with every 1.5 meter package. Why not allow me to buy a longer length and let me skip the extra zipper tools?
I bought this to contain the power cords from my TV & Satellite receiver mounted to my bedroom wall. I'm not real techy and while this product does the job the band was not very big (which, why everything is in metric with no conversions is beyond me) it was not as I expected. The cables are contained but I had to rig it in such a way to make it work. My wife isn't real pleased which is why I bought the thing in the first place. If you are looking at this product...buy a longer and bigger band if you are running more than 2 power cords through it. Don't expect to make the tool work either...I couldn't figure it out. It works...not worth returning for what I spent but I would probably look at different products than this one if I had to buy again.
PROS: Serves its purpose. It does contain the cords I wanted.
CONS: The tool they give you to "slide your cords through the wrapping bands" is not as easy as it looks. Looks goofy and cheap (but for the price).
I have a number of cables that I run along the floor board that I wanted to combine/hide and this was perfect for the job. I was expecting the usual cable wraps that can take a while to wrap a long bundle of cables, however these were so quick to use by just sliding the tool along the wires, what would have taken me minutes only took seconds. Also easy to remove just one cable from the bundle.
PROS: Easy on and off, Easy to pull one cable out.
