Mine is 5" wide. Being for a kitchen slide, it carries a pretty heavy load. As you can see from the pictures, its carrying a gas line, four thick DC lines (a pair on each side) and three large wire looms carrying AC lines (one on the front and two on the back).

And the job is now complete... used 60 zip ties to make 3 hangers on each side of 10 loops of plastic chain. Everything is a bit loose so things can move around a bit and it folds beautifully.

In mine, the sofa side broke but the dealer replaced it under warranty. I do not know how long it will last. I think it is a design fault.

It certainly is a design issue. I am in the process of repairing mine as we speak. I will post pictures when complete. Should be tomorrow. Both of my slide are going to be repaired in December. My dealer will replace the heavy black plastic cable guides. The problem I think is how there are hard mounted to the outside of the slide. I installed a regular door hinge, allowing it to rotate by mounting it with only one middle screw. I than attached the black guide to the other side of the hinge using 3 screws, washers, lock washers etc. This I hope will allow the guide to rotate as needed and also have a flexible means of opening and closing. In my case one end of the guide is higher than the other. This is by design so the cable bundles do not hit each other when closing. The problem is that the design causes the guide to twist when closed thus placing a lot of stress where it should not be. Hard to explain.
