I have a bunch of those. Beyond the stackable feature they are pretty robust cables.
It has been pointed out elsewhere that you have to be careful how you use these.
You should not be using them as a cheap alternative to a mixer or diode buss.
If you combine the outputs of two gate sources, or two CV sources, you are also hitting the outputs with the out of the other source's voltage as well.
Some modules are protected against this kind of monkey business. But many are not.
It is best to use them only to send one signal to two or more places.
One tiny complaint I have about tiptop stackcables is that its only one color per size. So red only comes in short, black in long etc.
I like to have multiple sizes of the same color so I can build one part of a patch in the same color. Makes it easy to trace it back.

That's exactly what I was thinking of.
