DIY "Wire-Keeps" foam wire keepers made easy. Here's an easy cheap fast way to get customizable cord control.  Perfect for that speaker wire that hangs at your feet under your desk.  I have been repurposing a lot of my interlocking foam rubber floor tiles.  You can get them in many colors, but gray is by far the most popular.  I think gray is the "new black" for foam rubber tile.

I did think of the idea and searched the net and I did find the product available.  As it turns out, making the item is pretty easy!
If you would rather order them I believe you can get them via Amazon for about $7.50 shipped (believe this is for package of 16).

Step 1: What You Need

What you need:
  • Foam rubber floor tile material - I used 5/8" thick variety. You won't need much!
  • Double-sided foam tape.  Mine was 1" wide.
  • Utility Knife
  • Drill and drillbit - I used a 1/4 inch bit.

  • Drillpress
  • Papercutter

Thanks for the idea and clear instructions -- great photos! I was looking for ways to get wires contained and organized. I've shared this with several friends. Good job! <br> <br>I want to make some of these for stocking stuffers for the upcoming holiday. Have these held up well? And I'd like to make some larger ones - do you have any ideas for a material?
