I find this type of ponytail holder to be much easier to use for this kind of job than a twisty tie, a rubber band, or plain circular ponytail holder. It’s very quick and easy. You can use it for cords that don’t stay in use all the time, or for shortening up a cord that is too long. Think of all those cords and cables you have in your house. I’m sure you could find lots of uses for some old fashioned ponytail holders. And for those of you who used them as a kid, it might give you a nice nostalgic feeling.
