I bought about 75 ft of cheap Chinese cable ramp off of ebay about two years ago.  They did smell right out of the box but, I just left them outside of a while and it went away.  On one piece the female connector had plastic from the molding process I had to cut and the wires for the hinges tends to want to fall out on a few.  Other than that they have worked well for me.

Give the ramp a couple whacks with a hammer on the wire while it's running through the cover and ramp. It will bend the wire a bit and will stay together better.

Reminds me of my Grandfather's quote. If it don't fit don't force it. Just get a bigger man with a bigger hammer

The idea is to bend the pin slightly so it doesn't slip.

I just bought 100 ft of ramps off eBay and they are much much nicer than the first batch I got. The tabs lock together and they don't smell of sin and the tears of child laborers.

That's just because they have the right cleaner to remove that smell.

What brand did you get?  Also, how many channels do the ramps support?
