Cable Management

Man these cables that are accumulating under my desk are an eye sore. Does anyone know of a solution for this?

I have all my cables plugged into a surge protector.

Advice is appreciated!

First get, for example, ty wraps that are found on bread loaf bags. Use two to hold each cable's excess in a loop. Then cables can be freed or changed without any tools.

Second, get nylon hooks (best but more expensive are Command from 3M). Use those hooks to hang cable loops on a wall. Now a vacuum can clean dust balls that would otherwise collect in piles of cables.

Depending on a setup, those nylon hooks can be attached to the back of a vanity skirt or behind drawers of a desk. Then cable loops are also out of sight.

A life-jacket to prevent drowning in your own cables. And a helmet to prevent injuries when you stumble over them.

There are studio desks where you can hide all of your cable mess. But just use plastic strips, or wrap something around them.

Whacky idea no. 217: Do you know anyone whose vacuum cleaner is about to pack up? When it does, ask them for the hose, slice it open and hey presto, a free conduit for a mass of cables.
