Four ways to organise computer cables

While today’s technology often features wireless connectivity, many devices still require cables to connect to power sources and each other.

Dealing with lengthy and confusing cables can be time-consuming, but when they become tangled or mixed up, they can become a real problem, especially when a fault occurs.

Taking time to declutter and organise jumbled up wires is a worthwhile endeavour, but ensuring they remain untangled isn’t always easy. Below are four different techniques worth considering that can improve your setup.

1. Colour coding cables

Cables for computer equipment are typically black or white in colour, making them difficult to differentiate. A great first step to organisation is to use labels of different hue to colour code cabling so you can quickly identify where each wire is connected.

2. Cable clips

Another useful wire management tool is to employ cable clips and attach them to your desk, flooring or wall as required. Small but strong, clips are specially designed to hold different sized cables in place.

3. Rotating power strips

Traditional power strips provide a single panel or line of surge-protected inputs. However, a rotating power strip will offer you the freedom to alter the positioning of multiple monitors, chargers and docks.

4. Organiser panel

Finally, acting as a panel of wire clips, an organiser panel can accommodate multiple cables. Providing a single hub for all your cables, organiser panels can simplify your cabling setup substantially.
