Anybody use the plastic tie wraps, tape and other things to wrap cable, fasten things together, and do other such tasks? I hate those things. I needed something I could arrange all my cable and wires associated with my computer desk with. It looked like a maze of spider webs back there and very disorganized at best. My brother who is a network engineer told me of a product which is double sided Velcro. Well I went to the local hardware store and that stuff was very expensive and came in weird colors and wasn’t a true double sided Velcro like I had thought. He sent me this link here where you can buy a 25 yard roll! 25 yards, delivered got just over $20! It’s a true double sided black Velcro and you simply take a pair of scissors and cut it to the desired length. It was of such a valued item and use to me I included it in my RV Tech Tip book.
I soon found many uses for this stuff. I first routed and cleaned up the wire mess behind my computer desk and the associated cords. Now you don’t see any of them and what a much cleaner and organized setup! I’ve used a ton of it so far and still have half the roll left as 25 yards goes a long ways!
Once I got my computer desk straightened out as I went I found several uses for this stuff. In my basement I was able to secure a few things to the walls by simply cutting the wrap to length and screwing it into the wall and then fastening the item to the wall. This really cleaned up the clutter in my basement giving it a much cleaner, organized look. Extension cords are now neatly rolled and wrapped, even the cords to my shop vac, air compressor and many other items giving them all neat and organized appearance. All those cords for cell phone chargers and other electrical items are all neatly wrapped including my laptop power cable and things like that. The best thing is it’s reusable!
There are literally a 101 uses for this stuff. It has a pretty good tensile strength as well. Another good use is to wrap your awning arms with it as added security to keep the awning from coming out while traveling. I put it on there and tried my best to unroll my awning and exerted great effort and no go!
I also use it to wrap my water hoses which keeps them neatly coiled while traveling. My satellite TV cable as well. I’ve used a lot of this stuff and still have a lot left. It seems I always find a use for it somewhere. I was able to secure a few items as well to the inside of my basement door so when I open it the items are right there easily accessible and no more digging around the basement for them.
It’s great for just about anything your imagination can come up with. When my dog Shorty is outside I use a small piece to secure her leash to whatever is available. For just over $20 delivered it has by far been one of my most worthwhile gizmo’s I’ve acquired. Thus it definitely ended up in my RV Tech Tip Book.
If you want o organize all you hoses, wires, basement items and you name it this stuff will do the job. No locks to feed the stuff through like the locking type. Simply cut to length, wrap it and you’re done. I found this stuff a while back at hardware store and it was way over priced and expensive bought by the foot. Then I found it in this 25 yard roll for a mere $20 something dollars delivered! You can’t beat it! One of my better investments!
That’s a wrap!!
