simple cable management on the galant desk

we’ve seen this cable & computer peripheral decluttering hack from van mardian. now, we have a lazy man’s version from dymtns.



“i got the idea from this site but i was too lazy to get a pegboard and screw up shackles in the desk so i came up with a more simple ‘construction’. the desk (galant) has a metallic frame with about 1mm gap to the actual desk. in this gap you can easily put through some cable strappers and use the frame to strap up not only your cables, but also everything else.”

    I loved the way you strapped your cables up…but it looks like a lot of work laying around on your back under the desk. There is a cool new gizmo called the Cable-Safe…not a very original name is it…that snaps right on to your desktop. It took a while to untangle the spaghetti down under but only a few minutes to get the whole mess hung up.

    It makes an instant shelf right under your desk so theres a place for all those cord warts & hubs. It also has hooks for all the cables. Don’t remember where I got mine
