Organize Your Life with These Clever Ties! And Check out the Customer Ratings!

November 25, 2011 Leave a comment

The minute you snap on a Bongo Tie, you realize that you’ve discovered the very best way to organize computer cables, extension cords, photo and A/V cables, tools, camping gear, sports equipment – you name it. Bongo Ties were invented by a professional photographer to clean up the clutter of cables and to attach wires to light poles temporarily. You’ll be able to use them to tie up bundles of wires or coils of rope, attach a tarp, or organize the cables behind your computer desk or home theater. The Bongo Tie is a really simple device. There’s a rugged wooden knob – called the Bongo – tied to a big, strong rubber band. Stretch the rubber band around the coil of wire and loop the free end over the Bongo. That’s it. Use these in the garden to support young trees, in the garage for everything, or around a slippery container to add grip. Sold in a package of 10 Bongo Ties.

Review: As with paperclips, pushpins and other desk supplies, no home or office should be without some BongoTies. They’re that useful.

Cable Management System Maintains Excess Cord Length

September 16, 2011 1 comment

Get your cords in check! Whether it is your mouse cable or your telephone line, the Cable Manager is a compact unit that winds up excess cable length so your workspace isn’t cluttered with stray cords. This kit includes four Cable Managers, so you’ll be able to clear up that desk area in no time at all.Cable Manager (4-Pack)

The Cable Manager is easy to use. Align the top of the cord guide by rotating the top of the Cable Manager until the base and top form a slit through the middle of the Cable Manager. Insert the cord at its approximate midpoint into the guide. Turn the top of the Cable Manager until the excess cord is inside the unit. That’s it! To unwind, just pull both ends of the cable at the same time.

The Cable Manager is designed for use with electrical cords under the following conditions: <3 amps for 120V AC; <1.5 amps for 200V AC. The device is not recommended for use on electrical appliances such as toasters or hairdryers.

The Cable Manager is ideal for storing cords of larger widths, such as network cable. A set of four smaller Cable Managers is also available for thinner cords, like mouse or speaker cables. Read more

4 Stars GLENN — LA CRESCENTA, CA    Date: 4/24/2010
Review: There are a lot of cable winders on the market but I like this one the best. It has little ratchet-like click stops inside so it won’t unwind unless you pull on the cord.

4 Stars JOLEEN — COTTONWOOD, CA    Date: 1/15/2010
Review: I have so many cables and cords from all my electronics that I needed a way to separate them. This cable manager is convenient and easy. It is large, for the larger cords such as power cords, not meant for earphone sized cords. Its bulky, but very easy to use and totally worth the price.

4 Stars BILL — DENVER, CO    Date: 12/13/2009
Review: Exactly as advertized. Handy device for winding up long microphone or network cables – easy to wind and unwind.

Whether it is in the inside or the outside of your home it can be a big hassle to neatly organize your cords and hoses. But we have a few products that could help make sure that your cables are stored neatly, and one good perk (besides being organized!)  is that you can prevent dangerous tripping hazards.

- Wouldn’t it be great if your extension cord neatly coiled itself without any twists, knots, or kinks? It could happen, with Wonder Winder, that is.

- The SCW-1B Cord Wrap from Snap2It is a multipurpose storage rack designed to hold a variety of different cords, extension cords or even hoses in one convenient, easy to move location.

- Don’t have much wall space? It’s okay, use a the  SMH-2B Multi-Use Hook from Snap2It. This multipurpose storage hook is designed to hold multiple items at once in one convenient location.

- Could the area beneath or behind your desk best be described as “tangled”? Your computer equipment can come with multiple cords which then creates the eyesore of the office. But that doesn’t mean that you have to settle for your office being messy.  The Complete Cable Manager provides a simple solution to all your cable clutter.

Review: fantastic product

4 Stars EARNEST — CONROE, TX    Date: 5/18/2011
Review: Very nice cable clamps. Check your shipping costs if only ordering one set. I recommend a large order to offset the shipping charges; the more clamps you have, the more uses you’ll find.
