The cable holder is small just like what the description says. The dimensions can be comparable to a USD penny. The reverse side has a sticky adhesive.
The only con I see is that the product was not as white as it was in the photo. You can see the color difference in the photo attached.

I live in an nyc aparment and naturally we have very few outlets. There is almost no flexiblity in where you can place devices like routers and modems. I got these so I could do an about 125 foot run of ethernet cable around the baseboard in my apartment so I could have a wired connection to my desktop. These are pricey (which is why I took off a star) but they work perfectly. The rubber material is pretty rigid, the cables don't just pop out. I had used a different product, also with a 3m adhesive but the rubber material was too flexible and cables would twist out, especially going around turns. Finally, I have two small children who look at things like 125 foot cable runs as excellent distractions. These blue lounge cable keepers are much more resistant to their tiny pulling hands!

After using these for several months, they have been practically Indispensable. I've purchased a couple packs of these for multiple uses and a variety of other locations/surfaces.
One thing that I don't like is that Blue Lounge considers these as a "One-Time" use only item, per the e-mail that I received from them. I was encouraged to purchase additional Cable drops as they are One-Time Use. I understand that because of the double sided 3M adhesive tape on the back of these basically make these One-Time use only, but only because of the 3M Double Sided tape on the back of each Cable Drop.
However, there should be an option available to purchase additional Adhesive Dots so these can be re-purposed for another use or location, as these Cable drops themselves can be used for many things and multiple applications. If these were just a couple of $$$, then I would be more understanding of "one-time use", but being priced at $9.99-$12.99, takes away from the value of this awesome product. This product is definitely worth the $10 because they are truly great, but to make them one-time use with no option to re-purpose them because of the 3M dots on the back, takes away from this Value. I've purchased 3 packs of these for a reason, and not because of not being able to re-purpose. If anything, you could make more money from a customer by providing additional options for re-use, again because of the pricing point.
Otherwise, these have been fantastic. If you want to try and re-purpose these, purchase some reasonably strong double sided tape or pads.

Have had these for a couple of months now and the only disappointing thing I can say, is that I had to order more because I ran out and need more of them. NOT because they don't work but because these are soooo useful and invaluable, the the uses are unlimited. They don't get wore out at all.
If you stick these right the 1st time, you will NOT have any problems with these, as I can attest to. I've used all 9 of the original ones I received and all have stuck very well without issue. I have been very happy with these.
I have been using these for over a week now, and I must say I don't know how I didn't hear about these sooner.
These are so Simple, yet so effective. Now I don't have to cringe at the idea of having to pick another cord up from the side of my desk, bed, couch or chair. These not only save me a little time, but also some back aches of bending over to get the cord to plug in my phone or plug in my laptop.
These also are so very easy to use. Easy to put your cord & wires in and easy to pull it out. Yet these do a fantastic job of holding the wires right were I want and need them the most. I have 3 of them so far on my Desk. One to hold my Laptop cord when I unplug my laptop and another to hold my cellphone cord when I unplug my phone. And a 3rd to hold 2 phone seperate phone line cords.
Usually when you unplug stuff, the cords and wires will end up dropping to the ground then, you have to not only bend over to pick them up, but most of the time you have to go fishing for the cords as well because they can fall behind the desk or dresser. ESPEFIALLY if you are in a hurry, when it counts the most. Not anymore with these handy things.
At 1st I thought these were slightly over priced, which they kind of are. However, at the end of the day, it really doesn't matter, because these have become very invaluable to me.

These cable drops work great for cell phone cords. I have four of them on the side of my nightstand and they keep the cords from getting tangled and from falling behind the nightstand. I love how the cords stay in the slot even when charging. I highly recommend these.

These cable drops are perfect IF you use super glue to stick them wherever you want them, otherwise they will eventually fall off. Without the help of superglue they eventually fell off when I tried to pull the cord out. You would have to hold the cable drop in place while pulling the cable out to keep it stuck onto a surface. I'm sure most people ain't got time for that/ are too lazy to do that every single time. If your worried about using super glue, I would suggest trying to put strong clear tape on a surface and then applying the cable drop with super glue.
The cable drops are nice and small though!

These little babies work well, stick to furniture, and come off without removing the finish. They do exactly what they are designed to do: keep your cords from slipping off of surfaces. I bought them to use to keep my laptop power cable from slipping off of my desktop but have found so many other uses for them...I am a bit obsessed. :) Order them...you'll wonder how you ever lived without them.
