I'm looking for cables holder Answered

I have cables for the computer lying on the floor.

I would like to hang them unevenly at the bottom of the table so that they will not disturb the legs.

does the table have a top resting on a frame? if so, and in case you dont want to drill any holes or otherwise ´damage´ the table: use some (slightly oversize) strips of wood or some thin plastic-tube etc and wedge them (under tension, like you would string a bow) inside the structure with whatever cables you want to run underneath (betw strip and table-top bottom).

There is a kind of fastener (from the family including: nail, staple, screw, bolt, etc.) usually called a "cable staple", which is intended for securing cables that carry power or signal, and you can find these at your local big box hardware store, usually in the aisle that sells wire, conduit, and other electrical stuff.

Also there are similar fasteners for attaching pipes and conduits, to walls and ceilings, and those are usually bigger sturdier, and found in the plumbing aisle.

Also there are people who just use ordinary staples, like from a staple gun, and I can point to one such staple enthusiast, since I noticed some pictures of her work just now, today, here:

I dislike the use of staples because it makes it hard to move, remove, or reuse, the cords later.

Although some people eschew reuse, and I guess for people with that philosophy, the plan is to throw away the cords, the desk, the computer, and maybe all the furniture in the room, and buy all new everything, whenever it is time to buy a new computer.

Or move to a new house or apartment, and just buy all new stuff.

In that case there is no need to remove the staples, or free the cords from the staples.

However, because I like the cables to be easy to remove, my approach is to use any kind of fastener, e.g. nail, staple, screw, etc., and then just attach a piece of solid copper wire (like 20 to 24 awg) to that, and use the wire as a kind of "twisty-tie", to hold the cable in place.

Some pictures of this are attached. The last two show my approach, essentially fastener plus twisty-tie.

This, what I call, "twisty-tie" is just a piece of wire. Sometimes bread is sold with these; i.e. in a plastic bag, with a wire twisty-tie to close the bag.
