Our playful dog chewed through lamp cords and an Ethernet cable, almost reaching a laptop charger. We opted for this product, which is thicker and provides some resistance. However, it's tricky to insert longer cords, as they often extend beyond its coverage. Sections of unprotected wire are left vulnerable, making it less effective in those areas. Additionally, there's a small gap near plugs that our dog may exploit. While not a perfect solution, it offers better protection than having none at all, though improvements are needed for complete coverage.
This product is excellent for managing cables. It's crucial to keep technology wires organized for a neat and tidy home, and it's even better when they're hidden. I bought the black version and used about half of it. The cord protector easily accommodated a thick power cord and several thinner cords. It boosts safety by eliminating tripping hazards, prevents animals from chewing on the wires, and enhances the overall appearance.
Concerned for our electronics and our puppy, we got this to protect both. Unfortunately, it just made the cords crunchy and even more inviting. It was also tough to put on. As our puppy destroys it, we're having to remove it and find other ways to block him from the electric cords.
Harbor Freight sells this stuff for like half as much - Chicago Electric protective wire wraps. Also if your little house gremlin is really getting into your stuff, look into getting conduit (can be flexible conduit, depending on your needs), but that will be a lot more chewproof.
The plastic tube is a bit thinner than i expected size wise, but its great for protecting my cords from my bunny!
My bun has an affinity toward chewing and eating hard plastics so I was skeptical in purchasing this. Luckily he does not care for the cord protector, my wires are not chewed, and we don’t have to visit the vet :) It’s a bit arduous pushing the cord into the protector. If you have children or someone with young healthy hands make them do it. Unless you want RA. Bonus : the cord protector comes presplit and does not have a horrid plastic odor.
impossible to attach to cords. tried screw driver, plyers, metal handle to try to separate the split so that the protector could go around the cord. no success
The product is definitely hard and stiff so IF a person can get it installed on cords, it probably provides good protection. I have two issues with this product. 1. The diameter of the product is 3/8” which is smaller than my surge protector cords and a few other cords. 2. The product is SO VERY stiff that I had great difficulty separating it to thread a cord into the product. I eventually gave up trying to use it.
Our cat was chewing on wires that move (looks like a toy, we think?). These work great for charging phone cables etc. Sometimes hard to get on (gap is small), but a great deterrent once they are on. She's done a few test bites, and left them alone since.
Good luck fitting a standard power extension cord in one of these.
