Great size; fragile latches.
on August 10, 2015
Basically, if you plan to install these in a place with lots of activity where the plastic latches, which close to lock wires in place, will be brushed up against, expect the latches to break. Otherwise they are worth a shot. Below is my experience using these to tuck away a wire running under the front edge of my desk for those who are interested in a similar solution.
Top of my desk extends 3/4" past the rest of my desk, just enough room to install these along the bottom side of the extended edge that faces me. Spaced 6" apart over 4', these supported a 3/16" diameter audio cable without slack. Was able to access a drawer that opened 1/2" from the bottom of the hook. Was satisfied.
3 weeks later, I brushed against one clip's plastic latch. Snapped right off, left a sharp surface that drew blood when I carelessly brushed against it again, and rendered the clip useless. You can file down the broken plastic to render it safe, or just peel the thing off. When I peeled it off, it came 100% easily and cleanly away from my wooden desk. Eventually I broke the latch of a neighboring clip, and a few weeks later the next clip down the line snapped on its own.
Still, these are a relatively inexpensive solution that removes easily (from wood at least). I will definitely give it another try, with the latches facing inward this time, and I will post an update.
