The options for cord and cable management are many and tangled. We’ve tried many over the years and all have some useful features and some drawbacks. Often, I see clients going back to the old stand-by – the trashbag twist-tie!
The Cable Keeper is a new twist on the old problem. I can’t say it’s going to solve every cord issue but it’s definitely worth a mention.
Basically it’s a colored fabric sleeve with sewn in wire that you slide the cord into. The flexible wire allows you to fold and manage the cord anyway necessary to create a solid bundle instead of a tangle or sloppy mess. Multiple cords can fit in one sleeve if desired.
The color varieties give you the option to use color to identify different types of devices or whose cords are who’s in a family.
- Wire structure gives all kind of folding flexibility
- Lots of colors available for color-coding
- Simple to load and use
- Adds a fair bit of bulk to the cord
- Folded cord isn’t as compact as with some other management tools
