To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we do not use a simple average. Instead, our system considers things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon. It also analyses reviews to verify trustworthiness.
The two cables I have in the picture (one braided micro USB and one plastic USB C) fit tight. They pop out often because they're a little too big for the slots. Some of my older cables work better in these. These are made of a rubber material and are little lose. I gave them 3 stars because they do work with smaller cables.
Ordered 2 of these at different points in time for different desks. First one was in 2019 and worked perfectly - cords rarely came out. Ordered another about a month ago, and the opening is much too wide - cords come out easily making this unusable - returned.
I didn't rate the first one, so this 3 star rating is the average of both ratings (5 and 1).
This is a really neat cord management "tool". It was easy to install and looks great and very minimalist on my desk, however my only gripe with this product is the grooves for slipping the cables into are a tad too big, it allows standard cables to jump out of the grooves too easily, and by standard cables I mean phone charging cables both iphone and android. If it were a bit tighter this product would of gotten 5 stars.
Great product, but not perfect. Thicker cables like HDMi cables or an SPDIF will not fit here. I realized this too late and then had to remove this from my desk, which wouldnt budge. It took a concerted 40 minute effort to get this thing and its traces off of my desk, and even now months later there are still traces.
