Cable management is a constant concern here at Lifehacker. Reader Daniel solved his cable woes with some clever redeployment of an unwanted folder.
As Daniel explains:
Inspired by your binder clip story I thought that using the metal binder section of a 4D folder would make a good cable guide. I basically just wanted the cables to be off the floor so I didn't keep getting my feet caught in them.
Neat solution! You can check out more photos of this fix here. Thanks Daniel!
