Yes, I have a problem. After trying several brands of these over the years, I found myself preferring the quality of these, Belkin® - Multicolored Cable Ties, 6/Pack - Sold As 1 Pack - Color-coded.
, of which I even bought a pack the same day I bought this Velcro brand 100-pack. Now that I've actually used them side-by-side, I no longer prefer th Belkins. Yes, the Belkins may seem slightly easier to apply initially, since they don't force the user to thread one end of the strip through a hole near its other end. But actually, over time I've come to realize that I actually prefer the threading method required with the Velcro brand, because once one becomes adept at it, it's actually self-tensioning. Much easier to get a neat and smooth tight wrap with the Velcro brand.
Also, the value of these is incredible. In fact, I think that's what's done me in. I have found so many uses for these critters that at one point I think I was obsessed with them. No joke, I got up out of bed one night to go put these on all the stored extension cords in the closet. I now can admit that I have a problem and begin the long road to recovery. Seriously, I bought these only about a month ago, and I have less than 25 left. At least I'm more organized and my house seems more clutter-free. Don't discriminate against the threading closure system, it is your friend.
As for the quality,or lack thereof, that seems to concern some folks on the U.S. site - really? I just don't see why these need to be of higher quality. Most users are going to wrap up the slack on the Blu-Ray Player's cord and just leave it there indefinitely. And if you are planning to remove it and re-apply several times daily, so what if one wear out or breaks the fiftieth time you try to readjust it? You've got a hundred of them anyway.
