Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by 19babydoll54 Silvertone Crimp Tubes with Loop
These were a little smaller than I expected but will work great for earring and necklace ends. I hope they will start to carry medium size ones and the large ones.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by leopardstripes Not great for wire, but for Greek leather cording? PERFECT.
Ok, I wouldn't use these for beading wire, but for Greek-style leather cord, the 1 to 1.5 mm. diameter type, these are fantastic! Add a dab of glue to your cord, pop the end into one of these, and you have a nicely finished end for your fine leather cording. To really secure it, go ahead and crimp it onto the cord with crimping pliers, as you would for wire. These aren't the best-made loops I've ever seen, but for the price, they're pretty darned good. This is my second order of them- they're my new favorite leather finisher! :)

These crimp tubes w/ loop are very good for holding onto the end of a beading wire, and have an excellent hold. Finishing the piece is another thing. Not all sizes of beading wire can be pushed through the top of the tube (next to the loop), but if you get it done, it makes a good ending to the piece. I did find that once crimped, they slide into the hole of a 6 or 8 mm bead, so that's something to keep in mind.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by obaasan not what i expected
I can't run thread throught most o these like those I get from a regular craft store. The loop looks to be tack welded on instead of being one piece and is welded to the middle of the tube. If you have a small enough cord or leather it might work for you, but if you want it for looping through, you will be disappointed.
