Top Customer Reviews
It definitely is very small. You'll see in my picture that it just fits around the cable. You are able to push it together to contract it to make it larger to fit over a larger obstacle, like the USB end of the cord (as pictured). However that's about as big as it will expand. It wouldn't have expanded large enough to clear the Apple charger side of the cord.
Also for reference, I tried putting it on another small cord, but would have to clear a 3-prong wall plug to get it onto the cord. That definitely would not work. You would need a larger diameter, though then it might not fit as snugly on the actual cable itself.
Flexo PET does not fade, deteriorate, fall apart etc. Just be careful where and how you use it in high heat environments such as under the hood of a vehicle. PET will melt, and when it does it loses it size changing properties because the braid has been compromised. Also, make sure you finish the ends of each sleeve with a good quality heat shrink. I like to take a very small zip tie, snug it tightly over the braid, and then place heat shrink over that. NEVER had an issue that way and it looks great!
For the car interior I bought "fuzzy" loom tape for the ends. It helps deaden sound. Under the hood I use high-temp loom tape to close the ends--about an inch in each direction.
I like this better than the split hard plastic stuff in a lot of areas. Yes, the plastic gives more protection from chemicals and rocks, but this drains instead of filling with water. So it's a crap shoot. I do use both.
Tip: Seal the ends of Techflex with a lighter so it doesn't unravel. Zip-ties also work well to keep it from unraveling if you don't want to use a lighter on your wires.
The product expands and contracts like a chinese finger trap, so this 1/4 sleeve can expand to maybe a 1/2" or so. Perfect for more than one wire
