I have just finished installing a five-groove black cable holder and now I am waiting to see how it will go. Installing is perhaps a fancy word for a simple process: each strip comes with a built-in adhesive which is described as being suitable for almost any surface. Well, I have given it a challenge. I have an old kitchen (ok, it's an old house!) where the electrical sockets are all in the wrong place so I have wires trailing everywhere. So any product that helps to get them organised is going to be a welcome item.
However - as I said, the first set is in the kitchen. The previous owner of my house thought it was a really trendy idea to line the kitchen with the sort of formica that is more suited to the shower area of a bathroom. This creates an ugly, shiny surface that is prone to copious amounts of condensation if I dare to cook without the windows and door wide open - fun in the middle of winter! So I will be checking to see whether or not the adhesive can handle these conditions. I will be highly impressed if it does.
I am going to put the other two strips in my two other appliance-rich areas: the living room and my study. This should be more straightforward in terms of air temperature and humidity fluctuations. I don't anticipate any problems there.
I think the concept is certainly a good one. I have used insulated staples up to now but they are less flexible as they have to be hammered in place, and it is not easy to move a cable around. These cable holders are flexible; it is easy to insert an electrical lead, and just as easy to remove it again.
Incidentally, I would warn people not to make the mistake I nearly made when first removing the packaging. I wanted to extract one strip but leave the other two in place until I could sort them. Not realising that they were joined by a rubber band (concealed beneath the label) I tried to pull one out and realised only just in time that if I continued to pull it would break - so I then removed the label and took it out that way. The material is fragile and would tear easily if mishandled, but should be durable enough once in place.
The appearance of the holders is functional rather than beautiful, but it is a product that is designed to do a job and is likely to be tucked out of the way anyway. Certainly it is an improvement over the unsorted tangle that I had beforehand! I look forward to placing the remaining two and will be monitoring how the adhesive goes in my kitchen!
