Energy Conservation and 3M Command Cord Bundlers – 2

In yesterday’s article I started to write about our need to tidy up all of the wires under the desk of my home office. I also indicated a need to place the power bar off of the ground so I could reach it easier when turning it off at night to conserve electricity, yet without drilling holes into my desk.

Here is what the before picture looked like under my desk. What a mess.

OK, here is what I did.

In thinking about it, I didn’t need to lift the entire surge suppression power bar off of the ground. Rather, I simply needed easier access to the power bar’s on / off switch.

So, what if I stood the power bar on it’s edge, i.e vertical? Sure, that would make the on / off switch a good 13 inches or so off of the ground which I could (and now do) easily reach when in my home office chair. And, the weight of the power bar would be on the floor, not on the cord bundler which is adhered to the side of my desk leg with a removable adhesive strip (so no drilling holes into my nice desk leg).

How do I keep it up right? Using the same 3M Command Cord Bundler product of course.

In the above picture you see how I placed one of the cord bundlers horizontally approximately 15 inches off of the ground under the right side of my home office desk. With the one end  resting on the carpet and the other end held in place by this horizontal cord bundler, the power bar stays in place and its on / off switch reachable.

I then used two more of the 3M Command Cord Bundlers vertically to hold the cables and wires off of the ground as you can also see in the above picture.

The next picture below is the area under the part of my desk where my feet go. Speaking of ‘go’, where did all of the wires go? Compare it to the very first picture in this article.

Well, they are now held up along the wall with two more of the cord bundlers, as shows below.

This solution is working so well, that I decided to use the cord bundlers to keep in place, again in vertical position, the power bar for our home computer. Dealing with the cabling and wires for my home office desk was really my own to do task. Dealing with the same issue for our family computer and desk was on the honey do list.
