To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. Instead, our system considers things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon. It also analyses reviews to verify trustworthiness.
I bought the spiral cord for my desk phone because I need to get up and walk about. I couldn't wait to get it in the mail. Well, I got it-and it wasn't 25ft long, it was barely 19ft and that was stetched out as far as it could. How do I know? I used weights at either end of the cord to hold it down, and a measuring tape!!!
The size of the telephone plugs on this cord is not not the same as the size of a telephone socket. It is smaller by about 20# Hence the fit is a widdly waddly loose fit. Since no returns were specified after purchase - I had to use some ingenuity. I made a tight paper wad the width of the socket and slipped it in on the side the "spring" of the cable goes. The other side of the spring is where the electrical contacts are and the cable gets jammed with some force and it all works. I hate doing fixer uppers on products that I buy - so I will give this rating *. One star for poor.
I bought this to extend my desk phone handset so I could get up from my desk and walk to the plan bench which is 8' away. This cord started to drag my phone off the desk and I was only 8 feet away. On the other side, this cord was brand new and was never stretched out before, but I think I should be able to get 12' before this happened. In no way would you get 25' of use. Maybe 18 if it was super tight? The length is misleading to the general public.
