        They seem to be well made and are relatively inexpensive. I used these as safety cables for monolights. The end of these threads through the umbrella holder. The attached clip makes it easy to secure.

        I would not recommend these for heavy equipment but they were more than strong enough for a monolight with a small softbox (hairlight with strip box).

        These safety cables are good for lightweight gear. The description does not mention a load rating, which is a shame. I bought a few of these and figured I'd see how they were. I would not use these for things more than a few pounds. The cable is very thin and the clips are small. You are not going to be safety chaining lekos or large flash heads with these! These will do fine for my cheapo lightweight LED PAR56 lights, but that's about it. There's nothing bad about these, just remember only use them for lightweight stuff!

                Needed to put together a small virtual set for one of our high school installations. Using this item along with the Reflectmedia pop up background and lite-ring has yielded some of the best looking chroma-key work I've ever done.

                          Cheap, Reliable, Safe. If you are rigging hot lights, film lights, or strobe and need to back it up with an extra safety, this is the cord for you. Its a cheap and economic bundle pack.

                                  Comments about Lowel Safety Cable - 3 Pack:

                                  I use this product to secure my profoto light heads when hanging on the end of a boom.

                                  I've also recently done a film shoot with the 5D Mk2 where I used this safety chain to secure the camera when mounted in risky positions.

                                  There's not much to say about this product really. I guess there's not much you can get wrong with such a product, but I will say that the price compared to similar items was great.

                                  The cable itself is quite slim, and while it will secure cameras and profoto heads quite well, I would probably be hesitant to use it for heavier monoblocks etc
