    Need cable organizer (or whatever it is called)

    During my trip to the US I saw there a very nice wall mount cable organizer, which looked like this but for cables, not for tools. In short, this was a plastic shelf with "teeth" on it. Put cables on these "teeth" and no more messy stuff

    Unfortunately I didn't took note of manufacturer/model, so I need your help. The problem is I have no clue how this thing usually called. A cable organizer? Cable rack? Shelf with teeth (I love this one!) or something else?
    Please help poor foreigner to extend his vocabulary and also to buy this thingie (whatever it is called).

    Watch the video on here (saw it at Woolies on Saturday):

    It's not what you were talking about but it may be useful. You can buy them direct from them or you can get them from shops like woolies, wilkinsons, £-stretcher, etc. They rotate JML products though so it's doubtful they have them in stock. Best to buy online or look for something similar.

    Yeah, that one is nice. But I have hundreds of cables lying around, so it is not for me It'll be useful to organize it somehow.

    Looks like this is for routing, right?
    What I need is something like that:
    Rotate that ducting thing 90 degrees so that it'll be perpendicular to wall. Put cables through the holes so that they'll hang, like long spagetties

    Go to ]http//ww…uk/, click on products, then desk tidy and accessories then scroll down to the bottom: -

    Sorry Greg, this is not it
    If you take a look at picture in my first posting (the one with gardening tools) that should give an idea of what I want.
    Imagine something like this but instead of tools there are cables hanging on this thing.

    Still not it The ones on your picture are designed for organizing cables in racks, right? My cables are not connected to anything, these are just hanging on a wall

    how about coat hangers instead save alot of hassel......:grin:

    That might do

    I found it i think! It is called a Lead Holder

    I was looking through the CPC catalogue and saw it. Is this it?..

    cpc.farnell.com/jsp…087

    The order code is AV07087 and it costs £15.43 inc VAT

    Free delivery you have to spend £40 to qualify, and also you're going to need an account to order I think. Might be bussiness only but worth a shot.

    Also found a slightly different version, called an Organiser Kit

    It is the same as above, but comes in smaller sections, but you get 20 in a pack.

    cpc.farnell.com/jsp…229

    The order code is AV09229 and it costs £9.42 inc VAT

    Same company again, so if you don't buy it, it might give you some leads with manufacturer names/part numbers

    YES!!!!! This is it! I would never guess that it is called "Lead holder". Thank you VERY MUCH!

    NP! I had to find a VGA switcher for a job at work and this was literally 2 pages before it, I remembered reading this post the other day so thought I would update you on this info. Seems a bit expensive though, can't you just fashion something out of a garden rake

    I'll do anything to save a few quid! :roll:

    Found even cheaper version on RS Components' website:
    Black standard test lead rack - £5.90 + VAT.

    I swear I would never guess such name

    nice, I didn't have time to price check :P I'll leave that to you. Also try Rapid Electronics, they sometimes have things cheaper than RS/CPC.

    Also try Farnell, they own CPC but ocasionally you'll find a good price with them too.
