Wrap-it solved the problems listed in the title of this review. I bought several sizes and they all worked. Thanks Wrap-it.
I use these straps in multiple ways in every part of my life. To give a few examples: I use them to organize appliance power cords in my kitchen, to strap things like extra tubes and CO2 on my mountain bike, to hold together garden tools for storage, to suspend car brake calipers when changing brakes, to strap things to my backpacks when traveling, and much more! I keep them in all of my tool boxes and with me everywhere I go.
The white part to write on is way to small especially if it’s more than one word.
