Unwieldy Wire Wrangler

About: Learning is a perfectly legitimate "life purpose" but I'm an explorer. "Knowing" doesn't interest me. Exploration and discovery does. There's always more to explore in everything.

This isn't really an instructable, but it's pretty handy. A sticky lint roller makes an excellent thin wire, fishing line, ribbon or even thread wrangler for when you're working with pieces or disassembling or unraveling something.

A "stick" type would be simpler but I don't have one so I use this. It's just a handy little "trick".

Step 1: Handle Type

I like this handle because I can just roll it across a clean surface, like a paint roller, while holding the wire and it rolls right up onto the sticky paper. And you wouldn't have to buy a roller - you could make something similar, exactly the way it would work best for you.

    Thanks! The little squares that you tear off of the lint roller are also handy for holding small parts to keep them from getting lost or rolling off the table.
