Great, Cheap Way To Alleviate the Wire Rat NestsNov 29, 2007
By P. Colin McGraw
"AV, Computer & EnviroTech Nut"
As cable ties go, these are absolutely great. They're more versatile than the semi-permanent plastic cable zip ties and relatively inexpensive verses the overpriced Belkin Velcro cable ties.
There are three things you should be aware of about this product, however. First, despite the brightly colored packaging, these cable ties, as the description notes, are all black. That's not a bad thing, but know that this isn't the multi-colored package.
Second, the way these ties work is that they come in several rolls. To get a new tie, you basically tear one off the roll (like you would a sheet of toilet paper), poke out material left in the little hole on one end, then thread the tie through that hole. These don't come as 100 individual ties you can just grab from the bag, there's a very small amount of work involved in their use.
Third, the price is a bit deceptive with the current seller. Check the padded shipping charges to know the true cost.
That said, these ties are still my favorite of the few brands/types of ties I've tried. The product is a great value and highly recommended!

Great product but not the same quality as the 5-packJan 15, 2010
By E. Jaquez
First let me say that these velcro cable wraps are great for their intended purpose, especially if you will not be adjusting them very often after you have secured your cables. I had purchased the Velcro One-Wrap Straps, 8" x 1/2", 5 Pack from Office Depot for about $4 a few years ago to tame my microphone and guitar cables and I love them. When I found these straps (100 pack) for under $10 I jumped at the opportunity to buy them, but was a bit disappointed when compared to the 5-pack, as these are considerably thinner and have much smaller "hooks" and "loops" so they do not stay as secure as the former straps (-1 star). Also, since I use them for gigs I am constantly adjusting them and so far two have ripped at the through-hole (-1 more star) which has yet to happen with my 3+ year old straps. If you are looking for a convenient way of securing your cables and do not intend to subject them to heavy use, then I highly recommend them, however if you are planning on using them a lot (i.e. for highly used audio cables) then I would recommend buying the larger heavy duty multicolor 5 pack instead.

Tied & True - These Really WorkOct 11, 2007
By Pat Fallis
You can go out and buy htose plastic cable ties at the local hardware store and walk around with a pair of wire cutters to cut and replace one of those plastic things every time you need to adjust a bundle - or you can simply use one of these handy Velcro ties. The 100 pack is great as the ties come in 4 spools of 25 ties wound together so they are easy to store and place wherever you may need to grab them. The professional look of these ties is matched by their strength and flexibility.

Cheap, Simple, Effective solution.Sep 15, 2009
The solution to wayward cabling couldn't be simpler. Wrap one or more cables together with an adjustable Velcro strap. It does what it should, is simple to apply, and is affordable.
The only negative aspect of the Velcro solution is that it will pick up dust and lint from your surrounding environment which will obviously render the Velcro less 'attachable' to itself over time, if you re-adjust or change the straps. However, in the $10-$15 price range for a hundred of these, you really can't go wrong and buying more if you have to throw old cluttered ones away is reasonable.
I'd advise this method over zip-ties or twisty-ties in a heart-beat.

Best tool for cleaning up cables - finally, SANITY!Jan 28, 2008
By M. Torres
I did a lot of research before settling on this low-tech way to clean up the tangled mess of cables behind my desk. Two towers, speakers, external hard drives, printer, scanner, and a bunch of peripherals = a lot of cables to manage. While they are lightweight/thin and not what I would consider "industrial strength", they are strong enough to hold all different kinds of cables, from stiffer/heavier monitor or power cables to thin adapter cables. I was able to clean up all the cables with about 20 of these cable ties and now I can't wait to use them all around the house! These ties are the most convenient, adjustable, reusable, reasonably-priced cable organization solution. I am very happy with this purchase and with the end result.
