Cheap, practical and fast way to tie and store your temporarily used cables.

Step 1: What You Need

Picture of What You Need

For this you need just some pipe cleaner (chenille stem, wire) approximate 10-20 cm (4-8 inch) depending on quantity and thickness of the cable.

Step 2: Folding

    Take the cable and fold it in half, than repeat until you happy with size.

    Step 3: Knotting

    Find the end of the cable, go to half of the bundle and tie up the wire
    with one knot (maybe two). If you tighten well it won't slide, but if you pull too hard it will break.

    Step 4: Tie

    Some of this technique's pros:

    1. when you use the cable and want to store again, you don't have to search for the wire - it is always on the cable
    2. if you bundle in the same way, the wire will be always on the middle of the bundle, therefore handy.

    It is a small hack, but it is helpful. Before, I used rubber bands or other type of slippery wire and it was tedious job. Velcro got dirty, and stuck to other cable bundle's velcro...

    Great idea!
