While enjoying a week of holiday with my grandparents , I picked a selection of gadgets and carried those with me .

My Kaoss Pad , several RCA cables , Chargers , Earphones , All and every one had a lot of messy and disorganized cables .

While I was "Inspectioning" my GP's shed i Found some 3/4" PVC pipe , and the Idea came in .

In this instructables I'll teach how to make some Quick and Dirty Pvc

I took most of the picture with my iPhone .

Step 1: What you need to found

A Piece of 3/4" inch PVC ( yet 1/2" , 1" may work )

PVC cutters or similar tool (a.k.a. Hacksaw) ( dig in the toolbox , I know what i'm saying!)

Some kind of wire to de-clutter (du'h)

So I do this exact same thing for cords around the house, but I just use used toilet paper tubes. No cutting, just as easy to label with sharpie, you'd be surprised at how heavy duty a cord it can contain, they have some flex for squeezing a lot of cord in, and there are always more available. Although my girlfriend did wonder why I was saving a bunch of them until I showed her how simple it was.
If you're like me you probably have a hundred patchcords and transformers. These pvc sleeves would make them very easy to lable and keep organized using a shrpie marker. Thanks for the great idea.
I just use rubber bands. No cutting or scrounging around for PVC pipes needed. I also just tie the cables around themselves. They stay in place, but tend to become a little curly after a while.
Who the hell is taking their Kaoss Pad on holiday with their Grandparents? Good work!
The same Kaotic boy that wrote this 'ible!
This is a great idea. I just went to using 1/2-inch HPVC connector fittings for my ear buds. The fittings are $0.25 each but pipe would be much less expensive. For my larger (power) cables I use some very sturdy toilet paper rolls I got at a hotel. Get the tool pictured in steps 3 and 4. I do PVC projects now that I have the cutting tool. If I had to use a hacksaw I would never do another PVC project. The tool goes through PVC like a hot knife through butter. Also this is a good place to mention it, I don't coil my wires anymore. I fold them in half, then in half again, and repeat until they are manageable and fit into the ring I'm putting them in. When I pull them out of the ring they just unfold without knotting or tangling.
thanks, Those T. Paper rolls are like 2" inches wide ,right? , i saw some at my school. and deffinetely ,yes, The PVC cutting tool pays itself in A couple of months
These TP rolls are normal, household size but very sturdy. They're like a shipping tube only 4 inches long.
