We suggest starting with objectively looking at the situation, and considering to unplug every cable. Yes, this is a complete remake of your current organization of cable positioning. When disconnecting the wire, you can make a record (write on them) which belongs were to avoid future mistakes when finishing the task and to plug them back in quickly. Starting from scratch allows you to organize your space practically, and you can use the opportunity to clean the whole area. You will not have this chance again, so make sure you wipe all the dust from underneath the cables and even clean the cables themselves if that is necessary.


After disconnecting all of the cables, you can consider where the best place is to mount the power strip, depending on the space, practical use, and visual effects it has. The most common place we recommend is the underside of the table of the desk, or at the surface of a wall in the room. The majority of the mounting the power strip have holes on the back where you can slide screw heads into them. This is quite easy to do and you shouldn’t experience any troubles. When dealing with cables, you can use rubber grommets to organize them pedantically. Produced of rubber, silicone, neoprene, and available in black and white color to chose, temperature range: -40℃ to 230℃, inner diameter range: 2mm – 10mm, for more details visit here.

But you are not done just yet – if you haven’t done it already, we suggest you label every wire you plug in back. You will always know which cable is which in case you need to replace it or unplug it for some other reason.
