Hosa Velcro Cable Tie Review


I have been toting stacks of cables to shows for years, and no matter what container I stick them in they always seem to get tangled up, causing consternation when I do my set-up. To mitigate this, I have experimented with many different types of cable ties, and my favorites so far are the Velcro ones that Hosa makes.

Hosa Cable ties are not terribly complicated pieces of equipment, as they are just black Vecro pieces that are sewn together so that there is a pocket in the middle that allows you to pass the cable through (even with a larger XLR head). This allows them to remain with the cable (and not get lost) even when the cable is uncoiled. They are about 8 inches long, so if you use them on shorter cables there will be quite a bit of Velcro left over, but you can always break out your scissors and trim them to fit.

There is not much else to say – they do the job and they come in black, which goes with everything.

Hosa Velcro cable ties are cheap enough, with most places selling 5-packs for 4 or 5 bucks. So, if you need to manage your cables better, what could it hurt to give these a try?
