Great way to clear up cord clutter
I purchased the biggest version of this, with two channels and the yellow door that closes over the top.
I keep my computer desk in the middle of the room, which means I'm running power cables, microphone cables, instrument cables, etc. across the floor. Add a Roomba to the mix, and it can get messy. The cheap, soft rubber cable concealers are good (I'm using those elsewhere in the room), but can't hold more than one or two cables. They also tend to curl up and skitter around on carpet unless they're held down by furniture or something, even with some hook velcro on the back to give some grip.
This, however, is a great upgrade. It's rigid and substantial enough to hold its ground and not get pushed around by a Roomba or shuffling feet. It's also really easy to access for adding more cables. I'm currently running two ethernet cables, a 3/8" thick power cable, and a 1/4" thick power cable through one channel, and two microphone cables and an instrument cable through the other- and there's plenty of room for more in each channel.
Disadvantage #1: Unlike the small, cheap soft cord concealers, the Roomba can't make it over this one because the ramp is too steep. The Roomba can access the other side by going around the computer desk, though, so it's not a big deal for me.
Disadvantage #2: It's pretty pricey, considering what it is, what it's made of, and what it does.

Heavy duty but lacking in one key area
Having made the mistake of buying the cheaper plastic ramps, which I spend more on tape and securing them to the floor than the unit was worth, I was excited to see a nice economic option available. You see, I work in live events so cable managment is very important and keeping attendees safe is a top priority. With that, I'm always looking at options that avoid me having to spend boo-coo bucks on top name brands like Yellow Jackets.
If you're looking for domestic, inter-home use, this may be too much.
This is a very well constructed unit. It's heavy duty and this will, I believe, last a very very long. I believe that this will also handle large crowds with ease
Interlocking between pieces is terrible. We have heavy road cases traveling over these ramps and the FIRST case that tried to roll over this destroyed our line, exposing our cables. The crew ended up having to 'lift' over the ramp. Now, I guess we could have taped them down but that would have been a wasted of resources. All this needed to do was make the mounts interlock better and they would be secured in a better fashion.
And I do agree with another reviewer here. The strength of smell was overpowering for some in our shop at first. We literally left these outside for three days and that seemed to have taken care of it. Wasn't a big deal for me, was for others.

Arrived bent up but otherwise OK
Very rigid sturdy plastic that seems like it will take a beating. Mine arrived pretty bent up and would not lay flat on the floor. I spent weeks with heavy object on both ends trying to flatten it out. Tried bending it the other direction and never could get it straight. I'm assuming this was from shipping but can't say for sure. I was frustrated and almost returned it but ended up just using some tapcons to mount it to the floor. It has just exactly the right amount of clearance for 3/4 pvc pipe.

Warped but fixable
Heavy duty product, will no doubt withstand the weight it claims. Also a very good price point. One star off for being warped.
Other reviewers mentioned this product being warped. It definitely is. I put two 25# barbell weights on either edge for a week and am attaching a photo taken at an angle so you can see how warped it still is after a week with the weights on it. Within a week I would say this technique has fixed the warping about halfway.
It maybe difficult to tell by the photo but if I used this product as it currently is, it would be a tripping hazard for sure. I am confident that the weights will work over time so 4 stars for quality and value.

Good product! Just has a funny odor but it goes away with time
Good product! But watch out if you're using it inside a small space like an office or something. I bout it to cover some cables that were exposed where people could walk on top so I bought the toughest I found and it works great! It just has a strong funny plástic smell almost like a tire haha but other than that great product and does the job good!

Great Safety Product
I was concerned about tripping over a garden hose that ran across my front porch. This covered the walkway part of the hose and helped avoid safety problems. This is a great product. It is heavy duty, you can step on it or roll wheelbarrows over it without any problems.

Got these for our church to cover sound wires and ...
Got these for our church to cover sound wires and electric cords during the Sunday service. Works perfectly to keep items safe. My only complaint, and it's small, is that because we are using this indoors, the intense rubber smell is a little overwhelming. We've had them a couple of months, and it is starting to dissipate so I hope it will eventually disappear, but initially, it is quite intense! But they are well made and hold quite a few cables.

Keep charging cords, or any electrical cords, safely out of your way!
Excellent for using in my garage in conjunction with the charge cord for my electric vehicle (Bolt EV). Ensures that the charge cord (or cords if you have other electric cords that need to be kept from being a tripping hazard) is kept safely out of the way.
Sturdy construction and the access flap makes it easy to route the cord into either channel.

was supposed to be heavy duty...I wanted to lay it across the driveway to cover camper electric cord but was too stiff to form to the road.

Good price, nice and bright, tends to be a little warped
Pro: to cover a sidewalk in Seattle I needed 2, these fit together and are the cheapest option for larger cables - I use it to cover my Tesla mobile adapter cable across the sidewalk as the smaller covers were too shallow and rocked on top of the cable. It's nice and bright yellow and visible. The "grip" tread is not grippy, it's the same hard plastic so the entire thing can be slippery in the rain, but the visibility is the key. Con: came a little warped and has since gotten more so, it does not lie completely flat on the ground, but fortunately the warp is on the end so nobody is walking on it.
