5.0 out of 5 stars strong and useful
I needed a few strong temporary ties and these looked like they might just do the job. They exceeded my expectations.

I have no idea what the breaking strain of these are, but I am guessing it is high. They are simple little devices that consist of a 15cm (6 inch) length of stainless steel wire that is fitted with a sliding knurled collar. This collar slides up...

2.0 out of 5 stars Unreliable
Out of 20. 12 were no good. they pulled apart where they're crimped at the end.
so if I put keys on them then I couldn't trust not losing the keys.

ok for the price. but not if they were more expensive, and not if 12 end up being thrown in the bin.

This review is from: Vktech Pack of 20 Stainless Steel 15cm Wire Keychain Cable Key Ring for Outdoor Hiking (Misc.)
I needed a few strong temporary ties and these looked like they might just do the job. They exceeded my expectations.

I have no idea what the breaking strain of these are, but I am guessing it is high. They are simple little devices that consist of a 15cm (6 inch) length of stainless steel wire that is fitted with a sliding knurled collar. This collar slides up the wire to a steel nipple stopper and the other end of the wire is terminated with a small threaded bar. The threaded bar is brought around to the collar and the collar is screwed onto the threaded bar. That is it, loop complete. If you need longer lengths these will piggy back for as many as you need.

A few things to be careful of:
1. As the wire is looped the threaded bar meets the collar at a slight angle. Make sure that you line the bar and collar up straight before you tighten it or you may cross thread the collar.
2. I had one where there was a stray wire thread that didn't get crimped in with the steel nipple. Not a problem, still as strong, but the stray thread could easily puncture a finger if you don't notice it.
3. You can only hand tighten these. If you use pliers you risk damaging the wire or jamming it to the point you can't release it by hand.
4. Check the tightness of the screw periodically. I haven't had one work loose, but Murphy's law says that if anything can go wrong, it will go wrong - and usually with the most expensive item you have secured.
5. These will permanently kink if you bend them too tightly or fold them.

These are really great devices and every tool box should have a handful of them. Plenty of uses limited by your imagination.

3.0 out of 5 stars good but flawed, 7 May 2014

This review is from: Vktech Pack of 20 Stainless Steel 15cm Wire Keychain Cable Key Ring for Outdoor Hiking (Misc.)
These are very good value for money and very useful however be aware that the break down and little wires stick out and pierce the skin. After a long time they brake due the individuals wires snapping. I dont regret buying these

Delivered quickly. Does exactly what is says on the tin, and at dirt cheap price too.
I only needed a few of these, but it was about 20p more for 20 than it was for 10, so a no brainer really, and I'm sure I will be finding uses for the rest of these for a long time to come.
I keep a few in my rucksack just in case. They're small and weigh nothing and are handy for tying kit to your bag in place of straps and carabiners and so forth.
A handy little item and I'm very happy with it's versatility.

I have no idea what I will use these for but I can honestly say that they will not go to waste as they are suitable for many applications and would have no trouble in recommending them .
