Power cords for computers, keyboards, speakers and printers are an eyesore and a nuisance when you need to adjust something and can’t get your hands on the right cord. To bring some order to the chaos, we like UT Wire’s hassle-free cable organizers. For your desk, there’s Cable Station 2. It has five slots to feed cords individually and prevent tangled messes. It mounts easily on the top, side or back of your desk, and you can write on the surface to identify which cord is which.
UT Wire also makes the Cable Wheel, a round gadget that stores long cords so you can get rid of those unsightly (and unsafe) heaps of coiled cords. The small Cable Wheel can store cords up to 24 feet long, and the large Cable Wheel accommodates cords up to 45 feet long.
Rounding out UT Wire’s organizational trio is Q knot, a flexible neoprene tie for bundling just about anything you want. Q knots come in three different sizes and have gripping “teeth” that are easy to release and retie. They’re great for bundling individual cords (extension cords, holiday lights, small appliances), sealing food storage bags, or organizing craft supplies (pencils, wrapping paper). Anything a rubber band can do, Q knot can do better.
If you’re overrun with cords, check out this simple solution. It feels great to untangle.
