As others have said, this product is not rigid and comes in a box that's about 5 inches cubed with the concealer all rolled up. I bought two of them, one to house all the cables running left of the TV and one for all the cables going right of the TV.
First thing i noticed is that there is a 1/2 foot discrepancy between what is advertised and what you get, it's actually only 7 1/2 feet long not 8 as advertised. So keep that in mind when measuring.
There are two adhesive strips, one thick one which is used to secure the concealer to a surface like the floor, baseboard or wall and one thinner one which is used to seal the concealer in it's rectangular shape.
I would recommend that you stick the concealer unfolded to your surface first. When I put together my first one, i unrolled it and then used the thinner strip to stick the edges together to form the shape of the concealer. However over the 7 1/2 foot run I ended up getting a corkscrew effect , it wouldn't go together flat. So I took it apart and then stuck it to the floor board, gathered my cables and then sealed the concealer up in it's rectangle shape and that worked great.
One thing to note is that it's somewhat difficult to add cables later. YOu don't want to break the seal too many times or the concealer won't seal on the edge and it'll just flop open and won't do it's job.Read more ›
Comes rolled up in a small box. Likes to stayed rolled up, too. Had to lay it out and place heavy objects on it to straighten it out.
Not the easiest stuff to work with; adhesive isn't very strong, if you accidentally allow it to touch something it will be very weakened once you peel it away from whatever you didn't want it attached to. Channel doesn't stay closed well either, due to the weak adhesive.
Hard to get straight on wall, final channel flap hard to get flat (the flap you fold over to close the channel) - looks wavy.
No easy means for corners, tees, or wye intersections. this may be the worst part - every intersection I have looks horrible
Channel volume is very limited. Very.
Decent price for product
Would do well for straight runs only
Would to well for 1-2 SMALL wires
Used in home theater system install in my apartment. Ran wires from units, up to a mounted TV, front, and center speakers; across a fireplace to a subwoofer, and to the back of the room to 4 surround speakers. Product was not ideal for this application. Too many intersections, thick cables/wires, number of wires. Had to double up in many areas (looks horrible, by the way... hard to get these things straight). These things are meant to hold just a few wires, so I certainly over did some of these channels.
Overall: 5/10 (3/5) -> not sure why "sound" quality rating is provided... doesn't apply here.
The cord concealer also had started to tear at the bottom where cords meet the extension cord.
So now I'm looking for a new one.
I only recommend this to someone needing one cord concealed, and hopefully it wont fall after a month for them..
