I bought the 20mm mount for use with the smallest releasable cable ties, the 6" variety, and they're too wide to fit. I'm told the 30mm is the mount size I need, but I'm not sure how I could have known this in advance, since the tie width and mount slot size apparently aren't specified.
I thought these were something else when I ordered them. I had something in the past, kinda like these, that you could snap speaker wire in and run it. Anyway, once I saw what this was really for, I still used it in areas with zip ties. The only problem is that these things are a one time use, and you can say bye bye to your paint if you ever have to remove them. I would use a metal scraper for doing drywall prep/repair to get them off next time, which might save you from doing spackle repairs where it tears a chuck of your paint off! In that case, it will still leave sticky residue which might require GOO-GONE or the like. If you need these to hold any heavier wires, I would leave it cure for a day first, once installed...then run your cables.
These are small - and so aren't made to hold bridge cables. But for USB and phone cables they work fine. They have slots in each direction at a 90 degree orientation so you don't have to orient them when you stick them on. I found the adhesive hold very well.
I have hung a USB cable from one of these that I stuck to the back of my TV. If it falls down, I'll modify my review and try to give the exact weight of the cable and time it held. Since this is just the smallest size, if it can hold on its own, I'll have confidence that the larger ones will be able to support a fair amount of weight.
PROS: sticky pad has enough pad to allow sticky to come in full contact with an uneven surface. worked great! also works with twist ties.
CONS: They kinda stand out in the mostly black environment of my own entertainment center. I will be spray painting a portion of these black in case it needs to go in a critical location for a customer.
They do exactly what they are supposed to do. If you are looking for some of these types of clips, they should get the job done. I stuck them on the back of my entertainment center, then zip tied tubing to them... then I routed all of my cables through them. They worked fantastic.
Excellent product at an even better price. If you are in need to cable management, look no further. Im thinking about using these to help management my cables behind my home theatre stand.
PROS: I bought a box of these along with 1 pack each of the 4inch white/clear and black zip ties. These things are awesome. I was able to run all the wires from my computer up the leg and underside of my desk to where there need to be.
CONS: Ugly - they dont look great aesthetically, but really you should try to hide all your cable management when possible. also, if you have larger cables (ex. coac cable, or a power cable, they tend to cover-up and hide the mount anyhow.
The back of my desk was always suffering from cable clutter, I absolutely hated feeling power, ethernet, usb, etc cables on my feet when I was in front of my desk. So I started using Duct Tape, it worked... for 30 minutes and then just fell down again, it also left sticky residue on the cables (Yuck!) And that is where this product came in handy, ordered this product, waited about 2 weeks for them to come (Canada Shipping), put these in the back of my desk combined with the 8 inch black cable ties (PID 5761) And now the only wires showing are the cables for my mouse and keyboard. Again, Thanks Monoprice!
