Power Bars

Have any other users had issues with the power bars cracking. I have a couple so far that had cracks near the mounting brackets . I switched to Velcro , but have had 4 total crack there and or around the plug in cord. Do these get brittle over time ?
They don't get any extra heat or uv exposure.

Yes the housing cracks when old, mine did over time and in my new set up I am using a combination of those plus new ones

Are the new made out of the same material? I'd think there would be something that would have a little better longevity.

Those have been my biggest complaint.
US based support would be nice too.
