Step 1: Choose You Candidate Cable,

The title sums up everything in this step :)

Step 2: Forming the Cable,

You can bend the cable as seen in the pictures below, depending on the size you want.

Step 3: Continue, You're Doing Fine...

Neatness if optional, but it does pay off later :)

Step 4: Choose You Path,

There two methods I use to make my cables look neat and clutter free, either use a paperclip or a keyring. Both methods will be shown.

Step 5: Paperclip Method,

Just attach the paperclip to either the whole cable, shown on the left. Or only on one side of the cable, as shown on the right. Both achieve the purpose in this Instructable.

Step 6: Keychain Method,

This is a more simple way of doing it. Just slip the ring over the cable, it should fit tight. This will ensure the ring does not fall off.

Step 7: You're Done!

Good work! Now you have now excuse for that messy desk! xD

Just some before and after pictures...Your gadgets will thank you

    you can wrap the tape with the stickey face on the outside, then cover it with a strip of paper. when you remove the tape there is no goo on the wires. it is sortof like using proper loom tape.
