Signum for cable management

Over the weekend, Lifehacker posted a great cable clutter solution from Ikea that I wanted to bring to your attention.

This Signum Cable Organiser is a black polyester pouch with two steel clips that can hook to the side of a workspace that has a 2″ or smaller edge. The clips are also convenient to remove, which means that you can have the Signum work double duty as cable carrying case. The case is 19″ long, and at just $5.00 it is a relatively inexpensive way to keep your computer or electronics cables under control.

Thanks to Lifehacker for bringing this organizer to our attention. Oh, and beware: There are at least seven products named Signum at Ikea, which is confusing.

    For $5, pretty clever. Probably could make something similar out of stuff lying around, but it wouldn’t look very good. Plus – a trip to Ikea is worth getting this anyhow 🙂

    That’s pretty ugly! I really prefer this solution, if you have a desk that you can screw it into:

    Not bad, but I’d prefer this solution:
    it’s kind of artsy

    I personally would not use one. Many of the “wall warts” I have for items get warm sitting in open air under the desk, I would worry about them getting downright hot by wrapping them in a pouch like that. My iphone charger gets hot to the touch on it’s own, that alone would cause problems in that.

    If it was a mesh that allowed air to easily get through though…..

    I actually prefer this option because the on/off switch for the power strip is easy to reach. I don’t leave my power strip on for more than 4 hours or so at a time so it getting warm wouldn’t be a huge deal for me. It’s always a pain to reach to turn a power strip on the floor on or off. I will be making the trip to Ikea.

    If I was using the system for few hours then may be I would have gone for it.
    The system is usually on all through the day hence may be a mesh pouch would have been more helpful.
    BTW not bad for $5.

    Bye for now,
