Introduction: Easy Ziptie/key-tag Cable Managment

everybody has a working desk with tons of cables running behind it.

i had a problem with all my cables always being on the ground hogging up dust.

so with some plastic keytags/ziptie's i made a easy cable managmant.

its not the most pretty one, but its sure efficient

needs:

at least 30-50

zip ties.

or key tags

other stuff:

hook srews (only for wooden desks)

magnets, for desks withouth any hook-on place with metal frame.

i have used key-tags,

but the principle works the same for zip-tie's

Step 1: Manage All Cablles

first you need to keep all cables to their bare minimum lengt, while still having the bundled part floating under the desk.

do this for all thin cables

Step 2: Make the Carry Arc for the Cables

now you can make the arc that holds the cables afloat.

hook this up at the back most table legs/support.

then interlock all ziptie/ keytags.

make 2 robes from each side.

now lead the cables trough the holes of the zip-ties

after you have leaded all cables trough the zip-tie's, connect the 2 ziptie cables.

make sure no cable touches the ground,

this way you can prevent dust/ other junk that can get between cables.

Step 3: Make Extra Support

if the weight of the cables is to heavy, you can create a extra arc of zip-ties for more support

Is this a troll? Please watch some YouTube cable management videos before trying this.

its not a troll, its a easy cable managment.

since i had some key-tags, i made this cable managment with it.

it keeps all the cables in the middle, and keep the calbes from pulling the (speakers audio-cables,

Can't understand a word! This just makes things more complicated instead of doing it's purpose!

its like a chain of zip-tie's.

the key-tags i use, carry the weight of the cables, resulting them not being on the ground

it might not look pretty, but its doing its job for the past 18 months.
