    Comments about 1 X .5 IN. 1-PIECE 500 SERIES SURFACE RACEWAY (5ft):

    This stuff works great. This is the second time I have used it in my home for a 7.1 theater setup. It makes short work of installing home theater speakers when you have no access above a ceiling to snake cable. I run a perimiter around the room with tees at 6 locations for the speakers. I finish it off with a suface mount box and a bannana jack array. Looks real professional. Just be careful where you place it. The stuff is real hard to get off once it makes contact with walls and ceiling. You need a heat gun to try to remove it.

      I needed some raceway to conceal speaker wires on a surround sound system. It works great but is not easy to reposition if you need to.

        I used the cable organizer in my home office...I had computer network lines running from one side of the room around to the other...very unattractive. I painted my cable organizers the color of my wall, popped my cables into it and now I have a nice, clean, finished look.

              simple product to hide wires. smooth coatins makes painting it difficult, but nothing that a few cotes or some sandpaper couldn't help. The adhesive on the unit is good, but make sure you open the tray before installing, or you'lll have a difficult time getting it to open on the wall without pulling it off.
