I wanted to improve cable management in my house, having a couple of computers and many video game consoles. I tried this product as well as Reusable Cable Straps Wire Ties. In the end, the ties were more useful for me.
I have 3 issues with this cable raceway : - it's fairly large so it's not that obvious to hide it behind table/desk legs - the space to enter the cables is too large so the cables tend to come out (depending on the configuration) - it uses glue (compared to wire ties, which uses velcro) so you can't easily relocate it
These worked well on my desk after I replaced with my own double-sided tape. The one supplied didn’t hold when cables were actually routed through the channel.
(Word of warning after using better adhesive strips - if you’re sticking to a wood veneer surface, be careful when removing them as the veneer might give out before the tape does. Use a blade to separate instead of just pulling. Heat gun might also work).
Did not like the fact that it only has adhesion only option, I had to drill a hole through the front, right out the back then use a washer and screw to attach to the location desired because my KID kicks everything under the desk, (Home schooled). Therefore, without interlocking clips to connect together, they just sit side by side manually aligning them together is weak for installation, not exactly a pro product.
All these loose wires was driving me insane, so I got a pack of these. So first the bad, some of the wires do still come out of the slot, especially if you have thicker wires, I'm little worried about the tape being scratching the paint off my desk or wall (so be aware the tape is quite sticky). How the Great news, you get exactly what you trying to do, and that is organize and hide your wires (off your ground)... my desk has gotten way cleaner without all those hanging wires. 6 tubes is more than enough for one desk, and the tape they provide is more than enough.
Update*** So the issue with this tape also is that it can only hold up maximum of weight. Be aware, if you are taping up something like a power adapter I'd add two strips of tape, as one isn't strong enough.
The piece of plastic is the same as in the picture and fit my cables well enough, but the adhesive... Jeez. It sticks to its own protective layer much better than to the plastic, so my 2 attempts to use it ended with the glue in my hands. I'll have to find something else probably.
The actual channels are good looking and are quality. The adhesive that comes included with them is just terrible it does not adhere well at all. You’d be better off either coming up with your way of mounting them or buy better adhesive tape.
The channels themselves are high quality and sturdy, but the product did not arrive with the double sided tape it was supposed to. Had to go out and purchase some myself, adding another $8 to the cost and added inconvenience.
I don't know how many cables you're supposed to have in there, recommended is 6. I have roughly 6-8 on each one of these sections, and most of them stand up. The one I have at the end of the desk where the leads run into the computer is the one that fails.
I don't have any issues with a lot of theother sections I have. I cut a few of them down to make them work in sections that need a different length.
Easy to cut with a hacksaw, easy to install, the glue/tape is actually great and doesn't leave a residue. However, I still have an issue with one section.
