Computer Cable Management on the Cheap
Now that you mention it, even though I do not live in Americaland, my power strip seems to have mounting holes like you describe. Nevertheless, I *still* do not know how to use them. I have never done DIY before and have no idea how to use the mounting holes. I'm guessing it somehow slides onto the screw, but that doesn't seem very safe or secure, and I would think you would need a very specific type of screw head for it to work correctly - which is also not specified in the guide.
Thanks, bruv. I actually watched the same video shortly prior to you making this post! I will be attempting your DIY solution in the following weeks.
The size screw is specific to your power strip. I usually grab several screws and flip the power strip over and test which one is going to be the right size.I found this YouTube video on how to mount a power strip that you might find helpful.https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-41m4NshDI0
Every power strip I have ever owned has mounting holes on the back. That is what this part of the plans refers to. **Tip - Use a pencil and scrap paper to make a map (rubbing) of the mounting holes on your power strip. Then when placing the screws, screw them right through the paper into the desk. When you are finished placing the screws then rip the paper away.
But how is the power strip actually mounted to the desk? The article completely avoids mentioning this is any detail.
Thank you and Namaste~
