拔下電源時如何防止電纜從桌子上掉下來?


45

我確定這是一個常見的電纜管理問題:您的桌上有一堆電纜,這些電纜在拔下時不希望掉下來,而是保持在易於取用的位置以便將來重新插入?

獎勵積分:

  • 不需要桌子上的細小突起;
  • 足夠堅固以支撐粗重電纜,例如以太網;
  • 將電纜水平支撐,而不是朝上;

Here's the strategy I've been using so far:

Get a large bulldog clip and clip it onto the desk edge. Pull one of the silver arms up, slip your cable through the larger gap in the middle towards the main clip body, and flip the silver arm back down; voilà, instant cable retractors!

Caveat: You might not be able to find a bulldog clip large enough if your desk does not have a thin protrusion around the edges (or it'd be so large that the cable would slip down through anyway).

Some cables are one time use and may be does't required to be plugged in always. In these cases we can remove from the socket and organize like this.

Using Business Card:

Punch holes in the old business card and cut small passage for inserting the cable between and hole. Hole size and passage size are according to the size of the cable.

I put one of those beanbag wrist-rests on the edge of my desk, and then snake power cords under that. I happened to have a spare ergonomic wrist-rest lying around, and this method hits all three of your bonus points.

What causes cables to fall behind the desk once unplugged? The weight of the cable is sufficient to drag the cable down because there isn't enough friction between the portion of the cable on top of the desk and the desk surface.

Hook & Loop / Velcro

I do IT work and often unplug everything and take the laptop/tower from the user's desk, but I don't want to fish around for individual cables when I replace the machine. So I use a hook and loop (Velcro™) fastener to simply bind all of the cables together. The net effect is that, bound together, they have enough weight and friction to simply sit atop the desk surface. Of course someone could push the bundle off the desk, but left alone it is usually sufficient:

  • no desk protrusions
  • supports heavier cables (the more cables the better)
  • lays horizontally on desk

If you don't have a hook and loop fastener, you can use an elastic band, a hair tie/scrunchie, a hair clip, zip tie (if you're not doing this often and have wire cutters as I do), tape, or a piece of wire.

Finally, if the bundle of cables is still trying to pull itself behind the desk, you might need to weigh it down a bit more, and a wrist-rest (as mentioned in another answer) works great. I've also let a desk stapler do the job of holding cables until I return. By this I mean using the stapler itself as additional weight, with the cables held between the base and upper portion.
