straighten out cables with your hands, they are all jangled up. use zip ties to keep things in order.

You can get jar or bag of 1000+ zip ties at your local discount retail store. That with a pair of dikes for cutting off the ends is all you need.

I have this but with my 6 year old monitors. The power cable's so loose that if I move them forwards, that shit starts buzzing and they flicker on and off.

>> No.63267905

Zip-ties are for permanent use
You will have to use sharp/cutting tools around your precious cables in the future to undo them.

You can purchase rolls of velcro material that you simply cut to length.
Can be undone and reused to add/remove additional cables in the future.
Soft and non-constricting, durable and strong holding power.

>Thousands of zip-ties
You will not need thousands of zip-ties.
A roll of velcro can produce hundreds of ties at custom length.

Some screws into the desk and some zip ties. Bonus points if you mount the power board using screws.

That's the basically free option. You can spend money on a cable track or whatever if you like.

>> No.63269489

wrap cables from the same source into one bundle with velcro is the simplestr solution.

you can go autistic with mouting tape, driulling holes, cable sleeves, cable box, etc but wrapping cables with velcro ties is the simplest/cheapest method.

>> No.63269542

proper way to wrap them is to wrap one cable through the hole and then wrap all the other cables but you can do whatever.
