These are excellent twist ties, and I like that they come in a variety of colors. As noted in my list of Pros, they have some excellent aspects, and I use them all over the house and workshop. For general household use, this roll will probably last me several decades. For most purposes they work quite well, but I would have preferred something thicker. Although these ties hold small things quite well, they need to be doubled up, or can't be used at all, for larger things such as long extension cords, big bundles of computer wires, etc.
It would be great if Monoprice introduced a thicker version of these twist ties, or multiple different thicknesses, to sell in addition to these thinner ones.
PROS: Can cut any length you need
Nice texture and shape
Keeps its shape once twisted and doesn't slip apart
Very long roll should last several decades for most people
CONS: Thin, small gauge makes them relatively weak
I always need these twist type ties for just about any reason to secure wire bundles to tomato plants, and everything in between...The reel has a huge amount that can be cut to any size, to do the job...If you are a "neat" freak, this is perfect, and they come in various colors...Something relatively minor, but, so glad to have ordered it...
PROS: A huge amount of tie, and good quality, for a great price.
Perfect for organizing your box/closet of cables and loose wires.
Every time you buy something new, remember all those twist ties you tear through, leave all over the floor, throw out then eventually wish you still had them? 'Enter' PID 1407 - One of my personal favorites at MP. An essential for any household to keep wires & cables organized. This isn't the cheap sandwich bag twist tie wire either - it's serious electronics grade. Tip: turn the spool on its side and make 3-4 cuts from the outside in. These 'relief cuts' give you a place to hold the wire as you cut pieces off. Not that it would come unwound or anything, just helps keep things nice and tidy.
PROS: Wire is thick enough to hold its shape, plastic coating makes it easy to work with, no pointed/sharp ends to cut yourself with.
CONS: Someday I will run out. I would guess in around 30 years. Grey would be another color I'd consider buying.
I bought this not knowing what I was getting myself into, really I just wanted something a little more reusable than zip ties and archiving the multitude of cables that I end up collecting over the years.
This is a huge spool of high quality wire tie, it's continuous and is about the same size as the typical stuff you see on vga/dvi cables. They're pretty good, though I've noticed on occasion the coating slips off a little on the wire leaving you with floppy ends, but not a big deal since you have a HUGE SPOOL :)
I love it and if I ever run out, I'd definitely buy it again. Highly recommended.
