        These work just fine. Although for use with my AB lights I would like to see cables with other options to secure to the lights.

        Much weaker than product image shows

            The product photo isn't correct. The gauge of the wire is TINY compared to the photo. I am sure you can find a much heavier duty safety cable for about the same price. I elected to not use the ones I bought.

            Not as advertised, but still usable

            • Easy to use
            • Flexible

            Cons

            • small

            Best Uses

            • Securing small objects

            Comments about Altman Mini Safety Cable:

            Ordered several of these for securing remote lights and cameras, but they are definitely not the same ones that are shown in the photo. The cable is a much smaller gauge, and the actual clasp is wire, rather than the snap clasp or latch as shown.

            Instead of using these for my original idea—securing a strobe assembly—I decided to use them to secure my reflectors to the strobes. They work great for that task as they're small and lightweight and stay out of the way, but I would never trust them to hold up an entire strobe. They definitely have their place and use, but don't look at the photo as a good representation of the product. I'd recommend them, but I probably wouldn't want any more than a pound or two hanging from these over my head.

            Cheapest safety cable, but not best.

            Verified Buyer

            Pros

              Cons

              • Expensive
              • Not cost effective

              Best Uses

                Comments about Altman Mini Safety Cable:

                The photo makes it a lot larger than it actually is. The actual cable is only about the diameter of thick mechanical pencil lead. While I'm sure it can hold a reasonable amount of weight, the price is not effective. You could build four, with equal fit and function from raw cable as you could buying this product.

                The clip is a weak point, and would be the first thing to fail.

                    Comments about Altman Mini Safety Cable:

                    I use this as extra security when I put speedlites on remote clamps and also my camera when it is attached to my monopod (quick release). It is extremely flexible and unobtrusive. It is thinner than I thought it would be. Probable around 20 gauge or so. I suspect it will support around 4 lbs.
