    They work but are kind of funky

    These little guys help you identify all those crazy cables behind your home entertainment center, but they are kind of funky assembling them. You have to fill out a very small rectangular card to identify what you're connecting up. Be careful separated this ID cards along their perforations. They don't always tear along the perforations. If successful you have to cradle them inside the color capsule that then snaps around your cable. The cables don't always lock done until you fight with them. Also would like to see more colored cables, but in the end, they get your ID problems solved.

    Not for use with label maker

    I bought this to color code my aunt's TV cable mess. I like that there are different colors. The goal is to put one on each end of the cable, but I had more wires than expected, so I was only able to put them on one side of the cable. The instructions said that you could use labels from a label maker with them. Perhaps if you stuck the label to the outside of the identifier maybe, but I tried to put them inside and had a heck of time getting them to stay in. Oh well. It worked for the purpose and everything is all tidy now.

    I bought these to give some order to the spaghetti strands behind my tv. I have 4 HDMI ports, and two PlayStation cameras all on a tv stand that has the channel to hide the cables. When I replaced the tv I had to figure out what HDMI cable went to what, it was very aggravating. I bought these to bring order to the chaos of wires. All of the ports now have a different colored cap on both ends to make it easy to know what is what coming out of the opening, all the cables are thick monster cables and I had no problem getting them to fit.

    I have several electronics now that I charge - most every day and some not as often. I have them all together in a cabinet that I bought for my charging equipment. These made it really easy to quickly know which cable goes to what and the color coding is a nice feature. The one thing I didn't like as much is that it's a little hard to read the labels through the colors but not impossible. I guess just a darker pen would fix that!

    I wish I had found these delightful devices for labeling and tagging the appropriate cords to the designated device. It only takes a few minutes to use a device to make the labels. The labels are easy to place in that portion that snaps around each cord. When tagging cords for the computer, use the color coded dots on appropriate location. The best comment I can submit is try it, you won't regret it.

    I like that these are not permanent stickers or flimsy flags that need replacing with new cords. A while back, my cable service repair guy (unintentionally) messed up some old identifiers while replacing equipment. With the reusable plastic identifiers, I can now easily transfer labels or rename all of my identical looking cords whenever I want. I move things around a lot so labeling the cords helps me tremendously.

    Cable identifiers

    These color-coded plastic cable identifiers (shells) are easy to install and beat attaching masking tape labels to the cables. However, the paper labels that are placed inside these shells are not easy to position correctly and are not easy to read through the walls of the plastic shells (especially the dark colored ones)..

    I always have trouble getting to the right cords behind my tv with so many different connections. This is an inexpensive, simple and easy to keep track of way to ease that problem. They are color coded with easy to see colors. They snap on right around the cord. There is also number coding and you can also write your information on the provided tabs.
