TG Tip: Use Binder Clips as Cable Catchers

[Via – Lifehacker]

We’ve long been fans of using binder clips as cable managers, but sometimes, a person’s raw enthusiasm for a technique makes it worth another look. Dutch freelancer David Rudolf Bakker photographs the whole process of desk-edge cable catching in beautiful detail.

If we’re being completely honest, this editor never really caught on that the true beauty of binder clip cord management was that the clips themselves could fasten to a desk. It was implied in the lihab’s Flickr set, but perhaps not made explicit enough for quick-moving eyes. Bakker’s photos show exactly how such a setup should look on a reasonably thin desk edge, and illustrates how the nook of the clip handle holds onto all kinds of cables—USB, ethernet, Mac power port—just so.


  1. Nice, now i have to find some clips

  2. this is a brilliant idea… now i don’t have to bother about the cables falling behind the desk when i unplug my laptop… thanks for sharing 🙂
