Cables tangled on the floor. Cords strung all over the studio. It’s a mess, looks unprofessional and is a safety hazard. Thankfully we have a few cable management tools to keep you organized.

Keep Your Cables Managed With ProTab Cable Ties

managedWhether routing one cable or a dozen, take advantage of coiling and grouping whenever you can to keep them tidy, out of the way and secure at all times. With JerkStopper ProTab Cable Ties, you can coil and secure cables, or use the tie to keep cables in one line from ports to ports. These cable ties are also good for storing cables because the ties prevent them from becoming tangled. This works much better than tape, which can leave a sticky residue. And don’t forget – these come in a pack of 10, so you should have plenty for the job.
