As grotesque as paying $10 for one would be, I know without a second thought that a bagful of CableDrops would make life easier, fitter, happier. Tape? Never stays sticky. A wodge of plastitac? Too tasty.

    I seriously had to do a double take on those when I saw them. They look very naughty.

    CableDrop: making your life more sensuous.

    Thrill as your cables are delicately enveloped in the warm embrace of the CableDrop.

    I often use a paperclip taped to the edge of my desk for this. They work fine, but they’re so declass√ɬ©. These look pretty nifty.

    They’re $10 for 6 of them, so its actually not that bad.

    A bag full is closer than you think. The $10 is for a pack of 6, not a single.

    3M has a solution I find superior:

    I love those things. Dirt cheap, easy to use, very flexible. They make my cabling so damn tidy. I keep one of the small clips affixed to my nightstand so that my iPhone cable stays easily found for night time charging.

    They also don’t look like a vulva, which is either a pro or con, depending on what your cable needs are.

    A standard office stapler, placed on top of the cables? Perfect.

    Just use a rather large binder clip, clipped onto the end of the desk, remove one of the arms, run your cable through it, and re-insert it back onto the clip. Great solution, you can even tie it in a knot onto the arm if there’s not a magnet or other large thing for the binder clip to grab onto.

    I’m pretty sure that was on here a while ago, though…….

    You know those plastic tabs they use to close the bags on loaves of bread at the store? You can staple those along the back edge of your desk and get this same type of cable management.. basically for free, due to the fact that everyone has bread in their house.

    I doubt it would be too hard to rig up some kind of device that would offer all the benefits without having to deface your furniture.

    A wodge of plastitac? Right-o, old bean, pip-pip, cheerio!

    (Wogs start at Calais, you know.)

    A big bag of Shapelock should do the trick.

    They say you can soak white Shapelock in Ritt to get different colors, but I haven’t tried it; I just bought strips of Friendly Plastic when I needed a black part.

    It’s nice, though, that these are 100% identical.

    I might have talked myself into buying some.

    Jolly good.

    Jolly good indeed. That’s why we love you, Rob!

    Actually, the oddest thing about reading britticisms (speaking as a wog here) is often the incredibly variable meaning of “pound”.

    “Oh, she’s cute, I’d take her out for a pound!”
