    I would heartily recommend this product to anyone doing sound.

    Comments about CHECKERS Guard Dog 5 Channel Cord Cover- Orange/Black:

    We have several large events each year that require pedestrians to cross over electrical/event cables where they cross sidewalks. This products allows foot traffic tocross without the worries of trip hazards. They are also easily crossed over by wheelchair patrons. I absolutely love this product. Very easy to assemble.
