alternate use for Texas Tomato Tower

Anyone ever use their towers for plants other than tomatoes? I'm wondering about peas, or pole beans for example.

I have used them to cover my (small) blueberry bushes during frost warnings. I put the cage over the plant and then wrapped it with floating row cover fabric. It worked!

No reason you couldn't use them just like any other trellising material for anything that climbs. But IMO they are way too expensive to use - even for tomatoes - so I sure wouldn't want to waste them on beans or peas or cukes when there are so many less expensive, and likely better, alternatives available.
