Only problem I had was the small part . The airline tubing holders are small.I don't see the problem as some reviews. One being a square peg in a round hole thing.I think it's designed like that to make a more secure connection? Why not a one piece? Who knows...got 2 different type from different manufactures, both seem good enough to rate 5.I have large Oscars and being the dogs they are, one of these suction cups went into the tank unsecured. One Dog ate it and became lodged in his mouth. (180 gallon tank). Diving for my Oscar, netted him, jumped out of the net, picked him up and secured him. Got tweezers, and gently performed an extraction. Oscar was traumatized for an hour, now doing well.There would have been a problem, but the suction cup was not completely over the tube.Other than that, they are perfect for keeping the lines down and out out of the way.

Here's the gist:Putting them together requires a ton of force in a very small area (hopefully your fingers are strong). That said, you have to be very careful to avoid bending the plastic on the tube-holder-non-suctioning-thingy. If you mess up, push the plastic back into shape.If you have arthritis, get your kid or a rock climber to do it.But once you get the hang of putting a square into a circle... you've got a great product... for the best price I've seen in my experience with aquariums.Standard maintenance on your tank will keep these glued to the glass... but not so much so that they're like the nearly permanently attached kind.Concise gist: Difficult assembly for people with weak hands and impatience. Does a great job for a great price, even if you break one learning to put them together.I use these and these only. Would be 5/5 stars if I didn't already know that some persons will have trouble assembling them.

This is a good quality product that works. The pegs for the actual holders are cross shaped and are to be inserted into the round hole on the suction cup. The hole is rather stiff and requires some force to insert the peg...that is if you dont use your head.The easiest way to get the peg in the hole is to first stick the end of a pen into the hole for about a minute. This will forcibly enlarge the hole just enough so that you can get the peg in. Take out the pen and quickly put the peg in before it closes. Done. No need to make you fingers all red.I prefer this two piece design over a one piece that you would say need to route the tubing through. This design allows you to easily reposition the holder if necessary.
