Functionality remains to be seen; appearance is lacking with champagne bottles
Four stars because Iâ??m not quite sure how theyâ??ll work yet. Iâ??ve used to cap #9 corks in the 750ml champagne bottles sold by northern brewer. The wire hoods do not really fit the bottle necksâ??maybe with some other kind of cork. Whether theyâ??ll perform functionally remains to be seenâ??I used the corks to seal cider during in-the-bottle fermentation/carbonation. Hoping theyâ??ll seal better than the EZ cap bottles did, which seemed to leak occasionally. For presentation/appearance, they donâ??t look as expected with 750ml champagne bottles and #9 corks.

Cheap Cages
I like these because they're cheap, the quality is basically the same as any others but no other supplier has Belgian cork and cage supplies for so little even taking the shipping into consideration.

the fast way
No need for tools. Place on bottle, place pointing finger into loop, rotate finger quarter turn, then tighten down with thumb and one finger. I find that they can be reused once but do sometimes break during re-use

Does the job
Do NOT overtighten - it's pretty easy to do, and the wires will snap.I initially had a hard time using the wire tightening tool, but the trick is to pull the loop taught, and twist 6-8 times. Practice a few times on a dummy bottle before bottling day.

Very professional looking
Gonna get the tool for next batch of belgians to bottle.Used pliers in a multi-tool and got a technique down of pulling the wire out and down to make sure I tightened under the bottle crown/lip. Twisting about 6 to 10 turns depending on the bottle, got very professional results, but the tool looks like it'd be a lot easier and less chances of scaring the wire.

Looks great
It took some practice to get these on right. Don't over tighten, they will fatigue and snap. They really dress up the Belgian bottles and give it a professional look.

Does the job
Bottled first Belgian with these. Bought the tool to tighten these down. Tried with a regular pen to compare. Much faster and more professional looking when using tool. 6 - 6.5 turns while, this is important, applying tension perpendicular to the bottle. Like Brandon mentioned, it is very easy to over tighten and break cage. I will personally buy these again when the time calls. Good luck!

Works Well; Be careful to not over-tighten
I purchase these to use with Belgian style corks on Champagne bottles. I was bottling some sours and wanted wanted to bottle with something that I knew that could withstand the pressure, so these hooded wires were needed to keep the corks in place. I tightened them using a screw driver and pen instead of the recommended tool. This worked fine, but it's very easy to over tighten and break the cage. After 40 bottles, I probably had 6 cages break on me.
