Quick simple way to organize the cables on your media center if your baby decides that now since she can crawl she should unplug all of your cables...
First things first.
1 plastic tub 5in/7in/12in (I think)
1 5ft run of cable organizer
3 or so cable ties (to keep those $%&@ cables together)
1 knife that is sharp enough to cut the plastic tub
Oh, I almost forgot. A big mess of cables that need organizing
Now that you have all of those supplies it's time to look at the next step!
Step 1: Find the Cable Rage
The cable mess that I was mastering was a part of my Media PC and my TV but the cables that you might need to master could be anywhere. First thing I pulled apart the Mess-O-Cables and separated all of them out and started from the ground up. Sorry no picture of the cables all over my living room, I did not think of it when was in the midst of the mayhem. Next I cut a hole in the end of the plastic tub (about 2inx5in) After that I ran the cables from the items to the PC and pulled the excess into the plastic tub that was sitting right behind the computer. Once I had all of the cables pulled I started at the peripherals and worked my way to the plastic tub (this is where the cable ties came in to help).
Step 2: Cables Have Been Mastered!
Once I had pulled the cables through the hole I wrapped them one by one and paced them in the tub until they were all in there and I was able to put the lid on. Now I have cables that are organized and out of the way of baby-zilla but I will be able to open it and get to any cable in a quick fashion.
I hope you have enjoyed my first instructable, I hope to add more as time goes on.
Hope this helps you with your cable organizing needs!
