Use and reuse these Releasable Cable Ties from Monoprice again and again! Cable management makes your computer, home theater, or networking installation neater, cleaner, and easier to manage. Additionally, it reduces the chances of someone tripping over a cable and damaging your valuable equipment. Plastic zip ties are one of the easiest to use cable management devices. Simply wrap the tie around a cable bundle, feed the tail into the head and pull it tight! These ties have the added benefit of being reusable. A small latch on the head allows the locking mechanism to be released, allowing you to pull out the tail, add another cable to the bundle, then tie it back up again. These ties are 6 inches long and can support a maximum weight of up to 50 lbs.

Because these work on only small items, they are not as useful as I thought they would be. I ended up ordering much longer ones for bigger items.
Another reviewer mentioned that they connected two ties together to tie up bigger items, which is helpful in instances where the 6" one is too short. However, if you combine ties, 1/2 inch will stick out before you connect the other end. After tying something up, you will end up with at least two 1/2" ends sticking out. You can trim one of the ends to make it look better or leave it as is (so you have two ends that can be tighten), instead of the one end in a single tie.
Bottomline is you can daisy-chain as many of these ties as you want and it'll prob. still hold tight but would look funny because of the 1/2" ends sticking out for every tie you daisy-chain. The good news is that you can tighten by pulling on any of those ends that are sticking out.
The other disappointment I had was how hard they are to release. You have to push the release lever toward the end of the tie, and that usually means toward the object you've tied it around. I have to push hard enough, the small plastic piece that is the release presses really hard into my finger and it kind of hurts. When I want to release mine, I usually break out the needle nose pliers so I can spare my fingers.
It's also much easier and faster to get that release to trigger with a pair of pliers than with my fingers.
Would I buy them again? I would definitely buy reusable zip ties again, even if the mechanism was as much trouble and pain for me to release. But, I would seek out longer ones.
At 6" overall length they'll hold several cords together, but would be too short for many other applications.
width of head 1/2"
width of band 5/16"
UPDATE: I've got to lower my rating a bit due to the release mechanism often just being too difficult. It's fine testing it out on a table, but 'in the field' where they need to be released quickly and easily it can be frustrating. Often I will end up just cutting, it's not worth struggling with, but it defeats the purpose.
The release mechanism is nice, being able to reuse them, but can be a bit hard to get them to release. This might be good, since it prevents accidental release. And who likes an accidental release?
I bought the hundred pack so I now have more than enough of these that I'm replacing most tasks twisty ties were handling though with twisty ties they can be folded in and these pretrude outwards if not trimmed. Will be recommended for amazon basics boxes where your supposed to be able to open things easily.
5 of 5 ;)
The 6-inch ties are really about 5-3/8 inches of effective length.
Still, these ties are too big for all but the thickest runs of cord and wire in a house without cutting them down. I'll get some of the much smaller releasable cable ties, down to 4-inch, for smaller jobs.
I'm concerned by the many reviews claiming these cable ties break almost on their own. Mine seem tough and durable enough but time will tell if the ties break readily or the locks slip. I'm not sure if these ties are treated effectively for UV so they probably shouldn't be left in the sun...the sun eventually makes untreated ties snap like dry twigs.
