Signum cable manager to handbag rack

Jana found another use for the Signum cable manager. So if you’ve got one of those lying around too, here’s a great tip on what to do with it.

“Two years ago I bought a new desk and also a Signum cable manager horizontal. After setting the desk up I realised that I don’t need the cable manager and so it was gathering dust in a corner. One day my mom visited, saw this, saw my handbags lying around and suggested using the cable manager as hook. So we simply applied it directly to the wall of my closet with some screws and voilá you have immediately 30 hooks on the upper side. If you are really desperate you can attach small S-hooks to the bottom side and you are with 60 hooks on a space of 1 meter. It’s not overly stylish but it’s simple and my handbags have a place to go.”

  1. clever, and I bet it would work for shoes… but handbags makes more sense to me. my dau needs this in her room, stat!

    I wonder if you could hang shoes on that, high heels etc?

  3. The Fox says:

    Could also have hung it vertically! Love this idea!

  4. Diana Draw says:

    Nice! You could loop accessories like belts or scaraves or ties (if they fit) through those bottom loops.

  5. Victor says:

    The extra S hooks aren’t necessary. The loops at the bottom can be bent up with very little effort.

  6. joana says:

    can you hang socks or collant or anything you have in your hand at the moment? ’cause i dont’t feel like i own 30bags. or?

    i’m only trying to be funny, but it’s a nice, minimal and stylish great idea.
