We recently adapted a headphone wrapping method for other cables, though some of you with more expensive cables were uncomfortable wrapping them that tightly. Reader Travis shares a cord wrapping technique he learned working at Apple to keep the bundle kink-free.It's probably the simplest method we could think of (in fact, we're surprised we hadn't seen it before). You're essentially just folding the cable in half a number of times - loosely - and then tying it into a really loose granny knot. It probably won't work great for headphone cords, but for USB cables that are a bit stiffer, the tie will hold together pretty well without being too tight. Plus, it takes just a few seconds, and you don't need any twist ties or velcro strips. Check out the video above for a quick demo. Thanks, Travis!
