Got your degree in cables management ?

3 Aug

On the way to get graduated on cables management, what about you ?

1. The cables ties.
Let’s start slow with the Gear Tie from Niteize.
I use them everyday to tie my iPhone cables as well as my headset cables.
It works well, gives me the opportunity to save room, untangle them nicely when I need to use them.
The gear ties come in different colours and sizes (3-inch, 6-inch , assorted 16 Pack, …), with it you can basically tie anything (even big and heavy things) with style.

That’s already a nice effort to keep it clean but …

2. Cables management 101, the tip of the iceberg.
Photo 3-08-13 6 46 47 PMI discovered the Un-Jungle Kickstarter project some months ago.
It should help me sort my cables out on my desk. Nice effort. It should arrive very soon in my mailbox … I’m impatient.

But what’s going on under my desk or behind the TV? Freaky, full of dusty cables not really looking  design … I need a solution!

3. Cables management 102, let’s solve the issue with …
the Blue Lounge Design cable box management system.
The Cable box, big enough to store your power strip, the cables and adapters (max length 15.6in/39,8cm on 6in/15,4cm, heights is 5.3in/13,4cm).
No many colour choices are available but as the goal is to lay low and not attract the eyes … black or white will do.
This box comes with rubber feet so it won’t slip.

It also exist in a mini version and various colors (blue, yellow, green, orange, pink, white and black).CB_desc_01
Now, you know what to do to keep it clean and untangled, happy Back to School 😉

    Velcro with a slot.
    Wrap the velcro around the cable, then the end through the slot and now it’s anchored.
    Then pull the rest of the cables to a bundle and velcro them.
    Velcro is also easier to adjust than ties.

      I still do like my ties, matching the cover of my iPhone cover …

    I’ve been using old bread wrapper ties. Sometimes I have to twist two or more together at the ends to make them longer. Your solution is much better.

      Same idea, different style. I used the bread ties before finding the gear ties.

    ya know, it’s somewhat amazing that ‘cable management’ would be a category of experience unto itself. i’ve had “problems with cables” for over 30 years now — starting with the veritable spaghetti-bowl of cabling connecting geophysical exploration equipment in a truck called a “logging truck”. things have improved a little for me since then, but not by much !
