I installed 30 feet of IP67 RGB led light strips, under a deck railing. There were a dozen wire inter- connections placed under the deck, and I used this flexible conduit as a way to protect the wiring from the elements. Once in place, the individual conduit sections were coated with elastomeric sealant. This proved to be a very inexpensive solution to weatherize sensitive wiring.
PROS: Inexpensive, readily cut, but also has minimal crush resistance.
I installed a 19" TV on the side table by my easy chair to replace a smaller 13" TV that I had used for years to watch 2 football games at once. I had to add a cable box to get more channels with the new TV. This resulted in a mess of wires being exposed in our living room. My wife said the new TV had to go if I couldn't control the mess!
MONOPRICE came to the rescue with your flexible tubing. All I had to do was measure the distance required to cover the wires. The tubing cut easily with a pocket knife and the power cables for the TV and cable box plus the coax cable easily fit into the tubing. The slit in the tubing made it easy to encase the cables. My wife was pleased, so there is peace in the household once more!
PROS: Very reasonably prices. Slit in side makes installing several wires and/or cables simple.
CONS: Wants to stay coiled, but in my application the cable coax helped keep the tubing straight.
I used 2 of these tubes to contain 3 ethernet cables and 1 coaxial cable in an approximately 16 foot vertical run between floors (through a laundry chute). I was pleasantly surprised to find that the tubes are pre-slit lengthwise, which means if you have existing wiring like I did, you don't need to re-run it, you can just pop the wiring in through the side. I fastened the tubing every few feet with 1" pipe straps to hold it straight.
PROS: Does exactly what it's intended to do
Easy to work with
Can be cut with scissors
CONS: Really wants to stay coiled up you will need to fasten it somehow
Thank you for your review and truly sorry to hear about the issues experienced with PID 7118. If I may ask, are you able to send me pictures of the split in the tubing so we can look into this further? If so, my email address is email@example.com . Thank you in advance!

Didn't work for me.
Unfortunately, the cons made it so that these were completely unusable for me.
Not Monoprice's fault, but these just didn't do the job. I'll probably end up buying some of those non-flexible cable raceways with the adhesive backs instead.
PROS: They look like they do a good job of keeping cables inside. I don't think the cables could possibly slip out on their own.
CONS: They come in a bag curled up, and they tend to want to maintain being spiraled up in a circle. I could never get them to go flat.
There is easy way to attach them to anything. I tried a staple gun, some small nail-tacks, and tape. Nothing really worked well.
The other reviewers weren't kidding about what a royal pain it is to cram all of your wires into here. I had an especially hard time with my really thick (but awesome!) Monoprice HDMI cables. Looks great once you're done though.
