I buy many things from Monoprice and have experienced no failures over 10 or more years now. These Cable Ties are no exception. I bought a bunch 8 or so years ago and all still work well. I just keep buying more great Monoprice Cables so needed more!
This is a great product to have handy for many different uses!
PROS: These Hook and Loop Cable Ties are excellent. My title says, Why you need 50? Easy, order 50 and you will use them for cables and other items that you never thought of before. Great for the box of cables that you store, because you never know when you will need that specialty cable again, so you don't want to throw it away. Also, great for traveling if you use more than one belt in your stylish way of dressing (you don't fasten it to the belt, just use it to retain the belt in a tight loop). So many uses, such great product and price!
CONS: You will find your wife taking them for her fastening needs as well!
I purchased both the 6" and the 9" ties,and could not be happier. I recently upgraded our PA equipment and was in need of a good set of ties. Since we ordered the speakers and wires from Musicians Friend, we decided to order a Musicians Friend branded set of ties. They were horrible, I pulled them out of the package and tried to open one of the ties and the velcro ripped apart.
The MONOPRICE ties were of simpler construction, higher quality hook-and-loop, and performed admirably. Again, I could not ask for more. They were very economical (50 for $9.97) and they hold everything I can throw at them. Buy a set (or two), you won't be disappointed.
PROS: Economical, Great Quality, Extremely Effective
PROS: The only reason I gave these a 9 and not a 10 is because they were kind of bulky. Nothing is perfect. Other than that, these work great. They are VERY strong, and are color coded. That really helps when you are needing to find a cord fast. I also wish I had gotten the longer versions.
