“Hi, my name is Bill Loguidice and I have a cable management problem.” (I’ll assume you said “Hi, Bill,” in response in your most sincere sounding voice.) Fortunately, I know I’m not alone. Until the (for now) science fiction future of wireless everything mated to lifetime batteries, cables and their tendency to get in the way are going to continue being a way of modern life. That’s why a product like Beotto’s CableButton cable management system is so handy.
The CableButton is a pack of nine rubbery black blobs with cable cavities. These cavities can easily hold a standard size USB cable thickness or two slightly thinner gauge cables (like speaker or headphone wires). The adhesive on the back of the blob keeps it in place, be it mounted horizontally or vertically on a surface. Since the adhesive is 3M brand, when you’re ready to remove the blob, it comes right off and shouldn’t damage most surfaces when doing so.
When you place a cable in the slot, it makes a satisfying click and stays in place without being difficult to take right back out. This is a simple, low cost product that serves a real purpose and does its job well.
