Cable Management ideas?

Hi. I'm looking to clean up the mess of wires behind my electronics. I'm looking for a cheap solution. I guess I could use some sort of ties or tubing, but not really sure what would be best. Thanks

yeah, that place seems to have too much stuff. I bought 100 cable ties from monoprice for $1 and will just start with that. Maybe I'll get tubing down the line. I guess I'm looking for tubing suggestions.

Re: Cable Management ideas?

I got some of this kinda stuff at Target some time ago...search for Cable Wrap on amazon and you'll see some options

For wiring in my PC area, mostly.

I've got some spare to use with the HT but I end up using cable ties instead, since I change cabling too much when I'm tinkering with something or other.

I use garbage bag ties on speaker cables that are out of view behind the equipment rack. Might want to use something with a little more bulk for heavier cables.

Simple, cheap and works.

Stuff like this can be quite useful. The ability to attach these ties to the cabinet is very helpful.
