Super simple cable tie made from velcro and two staples. Pretty lame but very useful.

Step 1: Get Yer stuff

All you need is velcro (3/4" works best), scissors and a stapler. Mine's a red Swingline.
i am currently doing sorta the same thing but both hook and fussy are the same length (5 inch) ill make some that are 7 inch for more cable i had a huge amount laying around from a friend so all free and im sewing them
Ah velcro. The rich man's duct tape.
Or you can buy them already made at just about any hardware store. I think I paid under $5 for 50 in two different colors at Lowe's. <br/><br/><a rel="nofollow" href="http://www.lowes.com/lowes/lkn?action=productDetail&productId=172729-388-93924FDL&lpage=none">Velcro ties at Lowe's</a><br/>
thanks for the link--not a bad deal at all. I'm used to the prices at music stores, which range from crazy to ridiculous.
Thats actually really clever, really simple yet effective. I have one of those on my cell phone charger cord and it works like a charm.
Wow... almost as good as duct tape...
