I have been known to leave my cords out on the floor after I am done using them. When I bought the Velcro I didn't know that I was going to use them for but I knew I needed them for some reason. When I opened the package up I knew my large cords needed to be wrapped up. Personally I like how there is a red end to it so removal is easy. The black and red colors on the straps are simple enough that it doesn't stand out too much around my other electronics.
Loved the stretch! Secured easily without fear that they would come loose
