A DIY Hack That Will Secure Your Cables of Any Size Once & for All
Set life is a lot like the Old West. There's a lot of wranglin' and wrastlin' going on, only instead of steers and wild mustangs giving you trouble, it's stupid idiot cables.
Laying down cable only to proceed to wrangle them back up again is a chore no one really wants to do. (However, those links will give you some tools and tips that'll make the process easier.) This is especially true when you've done all the work of wrapping them up using your much practiced professional technique only to see that the thing you used to secure everything has busted or come loose -- like your once neatly coiled cables.
This DIY cable tie solution by Made might solve this issue once and for all; all you'll need is some scrap PVC pipe (or cork) and bungee cords. Check out their tutorial below:
To be honest, I have no interest in sawing and drilling to make cable ties -- even though I think the idea is really great. It's just a little too labor intensive for this ol' gal. However, if DIY projects are your thing, then this seems like a really cheap and easy way to solve loose cable issues.
