Introduction: The Best Computer Hack You'll Ever Make

No more cables running around on the floor. No more rolling over loose cables with your office chair.

Step 1: The Supplies You'll Need

A hammer

One or more wooden laundry clips (Depending on the amount of cables you want to fix).

Equal amount of nails. + 2 for the ones you'll bend.

Optional: Band-Aid

Step 2: Preparing the Nail and Laundry Clip

Drive the nail though the center of the spring of the laundry clip. Hopefully you used a nail with a larger head then the spring hole.

OK, go get a better nail and repeat this step with a good one.

Step 3: Make Sure the Nail Isn't Too Long

You don't want the nail to come out of the other side of the table, where you put the coffee mug.

Step 4: Hammer the Clip to It's Final Position

Using the hammer, hit the nail's head to insert it to the table. Do that on the bottom side of the table board.

You can use another clip to hold the nail for the first few hits. That will prevent the use of the Band-Aid later.

Step 5: Place the Cables in the Clips

Press of the far clips wings to open the clip lips.

insert the cable to the clip and release the clip wings.

If the cable does not fall out, you made it! Well done.

Now show this to your wife/husband. She/he will be very impressed by your achievement.
