To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t 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.
While these are cheap, and you get a bajillion of them, they are not worth the money. They do not stay in the wall, floor, or baseboards. Perhaps the nail is just too short. Every other one breaks when you hammer them in, as well. You have to use so many to hold a standard cable in place, and even then, they continue to pop out. I ended up having to tape the cable to the floor and move the area rug to cover it. I would not recommend these.
The nails that come attached to the clips aren’t even long enough to go into the stud on drywall. Not sure how this has so many good reviews and a number of pictures showing it used on drywall. Are you just holding the cables to the wall by using the dry wall? Seems like it will eventually just pop out, especially if any tension is on the cable.
I bought these clips to mount a white extension cord in my bathroom, and despite multiple attempts, I cannot hammer the nail through the other end of the clip (the force required would damage my wall and/or my finger holding the clip in place). I thought, no problem, I'll just return them, but Amazon states that this item is not eligible for return and provided no further explanation. These are far inferior to similar clips I purchased from a local hardware store that I can lightly tap with a hammer to gain purchase in a surface. If this is what you're looking for, you're far better off going to a locally owned store or a Lowe's. Total waste of money!
These were impossible. I was trying to attach my TV cable to the woodwork around the room, near the floor. Having to drive the nail through several centimeters of plastic before the nail ever gets to the wall made these really difficult to use near the floor where you're someone boxed in. I'm sure my neighbors didin't appreciate me having to pound probably 10 or more times before the nail even started to poke out from the plastic. In any event, I wasn't able to drive it into the wall and finally gave up. Now I'm looking for something less industrial feeling.
Worthless for securing coax cable - way too big so they do not hold the cable firmly. I'm glad they were so cheap because they are going right in the trash -- if you're taking the time to secure your coax nicely in a basement or attic, then you'll likely be as disappointed as me in the function of these things.
