Give it a bit more time... you made the right choice for her future trust me! Spaying is key for preventing uterine cancer of which unspayed females have a very high chance.

However her hormones have not yet calmed down and in that initial period this can lead to some quite bizarre behaviors. She is also a little upset that you took her to the vet and were giving meds to her, but she will forgive you - it just takes a bit of time and the right approach (see below).

Do not give up on her!!!! Give her a stuffed animal as a cuddle buddy, I think that that too will help her feel safer and calm down.

As far as bonding, what works best with bunnies is always always letting them come to you instead of you going to them... silly as it is, that is what makes them feel most secure around anyone who is trying to bond with them. The best way to encourage them to do this is another silly thing - get on the floor. Literally just sprawl out and do your own thing and wait for her to come and explore you (I promise she will if you are patient). On the floor you are on her own level and you feel both safe and curious for them explore.

I would honestly suggest trying to really focus for the next few week on spending lots of time on the floor with her when you are home and let her out to explore so she can choose to come to you herself. You are already letting her explore so the net step is just to be on the floor yourself and be patient - she needs to see you in your world and feel safe about you. Watch TV on the floor and lean against the sofa for comfort or even when you are on your laptop. Basically just make a real effort to spend lots of time with her on the floor for a couple weeks and see if that makes a difference. Always let her come to you on his own terms when he feels safe, don't reach for her if you feel like she is not feeling safe in that moment (kind of anticipate her feelings)... some greens will help make you feel more inviting and attractive, and over time she will learn that humans mean yummies and they are safe and he will pop by for pets from you more often. :)

  1. Now you do need to bunny poof your space (this will help instantly if you spend one Saturday working on it) - namely the power cords to stuff... unfortunately no matter how much you train a bun will almost always chew cords - it kind of reminds them of hay... it's instinctual but bunny proofing is not hard or expensive at all.
    1. Wire protectors that work well - these are quite chew proof and you just hide you cables inside - it makes things look nice and neat actually and you won't have another wire chewed.
    2. Also something like this is great if you can make it work in the space config you have... like along the baseboard or floor - I used these to hide my cords and make everything neat before a bun was ever in the picture even
    3. I have also seen people slit open a heavy duty garden hose and put the wires inside - works well
    4. Watch a few videos below for some more great tips - they are short and have good ideas for you
      1. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UbDQfIAVvY0
      2. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Y1-GN3qErFc
      3. http://wabbitwiki.com/wiki/Bunny-proofing
  2. Now for your moldings and furniture you can also try something like this tape (but be very careful to be sure he does not chew it!)
    1. You can also try a homemade spray like in this video to make it unattractive to chew - just spray on wooden things he chews
  3. For flooring I highly suggest this indoor/outdoor rug - it is easy to clean, inexpensive, and due to a tight weave hard to chew. A lot of bunny parents on here use it and love it. :)
    1. If they love to dig though don't deny them, provide a good alternative instead on top of the rug below in one spot - these seagrass mats - they are safe and awesome.
    2. Giving toys and things that are actually meant for digging and chewing will prevent the carpet digging (as in more targeted toys) - try to provide a box full for shredded paper to dig like this in or a cat scratcher like this one or something like this.
  4. No we have come to the last and most important point - bunnies are smart and they need toys to entertain them and stay out of trouble. In the absence of good things to chew they will chew the other things - chewing and digging is their natural instinct, so the solution is not to spot them, but to provide alternatives specifically meant for them to chew and dig and to reinforce them using it. Bunnies are very food-motivated so you can use food to train them to do what you want them to do. :)
    1. They do really understand positive reinforcement and build positive associations when you redirect bad behavior and reward good behavior. So you have to actively and diligently train the bunny overtime not to chew and dig the wrong things. Anytime you see digging or chewing, immediately try to offer a toy or some alternative instead and reward with a small treat when it works. This does need to be done very diligently each time you see him do things like that.

I just bought a cheapo wall mount from Best Buy when I wanted to wall mount my monitor and it worked great. Fortunately, monitors that support wall mounting all follow the same VESA standard that TV's follow, so you can buy any TV/"Display" wall mount that has a range support for your monitor size (generally, VESA wall mounts will say '24"-40"', '42"-60"' etc.) and bolt it in!

From there it depends on if you want one that is static, or if you want one that tilts up and down, or one that moves forward/back/left/right. You can also get an arm that attaches to your desk and has a VESA mount on the back.

Tons of options, really just boils down to the features that you want. As far as quality goes, I'd look at reviews to be sure but after mounting 4 TV's and One monitor in my lifetime, I've never had a wall mount break or fall off the wall - just make sure you follow the directions on the box.

The one thing I 100% recommend is to drill pilot holes. Absolutely do it. It may sound unnecessary but I guarantee you it is completely worth the time in case there's something in the wall that prevents you from putting in the lag bolts, also an extra measure of precaution against cracking your stud. Easy to do, only takes a couple extra minutes, and can save you some major headaches.

Also I'm offering all this information on the pretense that you haven't wall mounted anything before.

TL;DR: Go on Amazon (or your local electronics store if you're impatient/OK with spending more money) and find a mount/monitor arm with the features you like that supports a 34" display. Also make sure to drill pilot holes.


EDIT
For cable management in the context of cables going to your monitor, you have 2 options: Either a cable cover or running them through the wall. I've done both- when I lived in an apartment, I did a cable cover because I didn't want to carve out a hole in the wall in a rental, but in my house I ran them through the wall. The cable cover is super easy because it's just a piece of soft plastic that either bolts or adheres to the wall, you run the cables through it, slide on the plastic cover and bam, done. Looks super clean. https://www.amazon.com/Wiremold-CMK30-30-inch-Screen-Cover/dp/B0015EA3NO/ref=sr_1_6?s=electronics&ie=UTF8&qid=1482943183&sr=1-6&keywords=cable+cover

Running the cables through the wall isn't much more difficult- took maybe about 30-45 minutes to complete. The best way to do it is to get a drywall saw, some brush plates from a hardware store, and cut a hole to the dimensions of the brush plate. The brush plates are nice because when all is said and done you don't have an ugly, open hole in the wall, instead you have something that resembles a wall socket or a lightswitch (brush plates are the same dimensions), and the receptacle part of the brush plate that goes in the wall generally has a hook to keep your cables from getting stuck in the wall if/when you disconnect them.

Sorry if this is information overload/stuff you already know lol, I like to help others when I'm knowledgeable on the subject.

u/The_EA_Nazi · 2 pointsr/malelivingspace

Ahhhhh OP. My eyes.

Ok, so here's my advice as I just went through something similar recently. I had to run a Cat6a cable into my room as I wasn't getting the speeds I wanted over wifi because the walls in my apartment are plaster so it cuts the speed like 50%.

There are some great tools out there that I think could help you manage the cabling in the room, but there are also some simpler tricks as well.

You have a ton of empty space on the bottom of your tv stand. There's a few options you could go here. You could get some nice wooden or storage inserts like [these] (https://www.amazon.com/MobileVision-Storage-Durable-Handles-Stackable/dp/B076CWK7R5/ref=sr_1_15?keywords=wooden+storage+box&qid=1565625552&s=gateway&sr=8-15) but bigger. I cant remember exactly where I got mine from but I believe it was Bed Bath and Beyond, they're more square and slightly bigger. There's a ton of options for those, that way you fill that empty space with usable storage, which will also help you hide the wires behind the tv stand.

The other recommendation I have to go with that is a power strip on the floor behind those storage boxes, that way everything can plug into the strip, and only one plug will need to run to the wall outlet rather then multiple.

If you didn't want to go that way, there are these super useful adhesive cable organizers that I used for my Cat cables. Now I'd recommend measuring beforehand, the length you need, and also how thick your cables are so you can figure out how big of an organizer you'll need.

But these are the ones I used: https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00004W3ZQ/ref=ppx_yo_dt_b_asin_title_o03_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1

These should be ok, but again make sure you double check if you need a thicker one. The great thing about these is that they can be painted to match your wall, personally I just stuck them on the molding near the floor so it looks like it's a part of it.

It definitely doesn't look that unorganized, and personally, I think your easiest fix would be putting some organizers under the tv stand so it blocks the view of all those cables. Because you don't have a ton of cables to begin with either, just an amp, tv, and playstation and a cable running from the left side as well.

u/IzzuThug · 4 pointsr/battlestations

Don't let this hooligans fool ya. LED's are awesome, more screens the better. I'm not sure if you use that box as a foot stool but if not you should move it so you have room for your feet.


  1. As someone else said move the LED strip to the back of your desk.


  2. Again as someone else said move that one speaker to the correct side. However, you don't need to discard a monitor for that. Just put it behind where the monitors meet. So long as the speaker isn't covered too much it shouldn't hinder sound coming out of it. Heck, if you wanted you could lay the speaker on its side. I'm not much of an audiophile and don't have those speakers so your mileage may vary. Are those speakers hooked up to a stereo, computer, or maybe a DAC? If it's a DAC then you could easily mount that to the underside of the desk with some double sided tape or Velcro tape. I prefer Velcro tape myself.


  3. Once more, as someone said mount those headphone somewhere when you're not using them. Seems you have space to the left of your desk for that. If you like using that space yourself then you could just mount a holder on the underside of your desk. They're super cheap on Amazon, and anything like this will work fine.


  4. It's hard to see how much cable clutter you have. Best thing you can do is bundle as many cables together as possible. A good way to do this is with veclro ties. The more peripherals you get the more cables you have. Some will have their own power bricks and some will have cable length as if you were supposed to use the thing in another room. To deter this I would recommend cable trays to mount to the bottom of the desk. One other thing that can help for cable management is a cable sleeve which is helpful for tiding up those cables as they go to your PC.


  5. Basically mount anything and everything you can to the bottom of your desk to hide as much as possible from view.
u/ryzzie · 5 pointsr/konmari

So for wall mounted TVs I recommend a cable raceway (similar to this) to disguise the cable on the wall. You can adhere to the wall with command strips or other double-stick.

You can also use this for the lamp cord. I recommend moving the lamp closer to the wall. If there is excess cord, you can often feed it back into the lamp base. If your lamp base doesn't have a bottom, you can neatly (and gently) coil (DO NOT CREASE) the excess cord and secure with cable ties (I like this stuff because it only takes a little, and it's repositionable, unlike zip-ties).

As far as the power brick and excess cord to the wall...I would recommend placing an entertainment center (games????) OR some kind of decorative something that sparks JOY! Maybe something that can function as storage for something you need in the room, but don't want laying about (remote controls, etc).

Pro-tip: it may be tempting to pull cords SUPER tight, but keep a little slack to ensure the cable isn't being bent at the connectors.

Good luck, and please share your end solution with us!

u/jwaldrep · 1 pointr/HomeServer

I like the covered style, like this:

https://www.amazon.com/dp/B0145HHLLE/ref=cm_sw_r_cp_apa_DDQQzbJ8T9D0D

I like it because you can leave the cable pretty loose (therefore easy to work with and no Velcro ties needed), but it still keeps it tidy. You can get vertical versions of the same thing, which is where I put the extra slack off the cable (just let it loop down). If you have a fair amount of connections in your patch panel, consider getting one that is double sided. Obviously, it comes in a variety of sizes. Typically, 24 cables per 1u is a good guideline.

Edit: before and after. This isn't the best example for several reasons, but it gives you an idea of what good cable management can do. Some things worth noting here:

  1. We removed a switch and 1/2 the cables. (Instead of having the PC and the IP phone plugged into the wall, the PCs now connect through the phone.) This will make anything look better.
  2. No vertical management like I mentioned. It's too short and there is not a good way to attach it on this rack. This may be similar to what you have, though.
  3. Mixed type of management. You can clearly see the ring type and covered type here. That may actually help you decide which you like better, though.
  4. The extra slack is pushed through the holes in the back of the covered management. I don't like to do this because it makes working with the cabling more difficult, but when there is no vertical management to take care of it, it's an alright option.
u/myaltimateform · 1 pointr/SleepApnea

I think you were on to something initially with the PC fans. They're standardized, low power, and last forever. Instead of using the 3 or 4 pin connectors, you could get a USB powered model, like these, plug them into a USB AC charger, and the charger into a timer or inline switch. If you find the airflow isn't enough, you can add a second fan or try a larger one. It won't dry a tube in 10 seconds, but let it sit for 5 minutes and it should do the job.

Instead of 3D printing small stuff, you could always use Sugru. For a funnel, see if you can find a car oil funnel. They go from a large square (for the fans) to a small circle (for the tube).

If you want to get super fancy, since the tubes are a standardized length, you could mount this fan contraction to a wall with a second set of funnel and fans at the opposite end (but with the fans flipped over). Then you'd have gravity pulling the water down, the fan blowing dry air from the top, and the moisture being sucked out the bottom. Connect the two pieces with some plastic wire conduit/covers and you got yourself a nice, tidy solution.

You could even have a 'deluxe' model with an attached shelf containing a few fans under a grating/mesh for the other bits, like face mask and head strap.

I wouldn't use a hairdryer because of the heat. I'd opt for something that uses cool air, but requires no oversight.

Of course the alternative is to just clean it early in the day and let it dry for a few hours... (but I do love my gadgets).

u/SuckinLemonz · 24 pointsr/Rabbits

You spay/neuter them. You put their hay feeder above their litterbox. Then you put almost no effort into litter training them but it somehow works.

Then you buy cord protectors for everything for a grand total of idk, like, $20 bucks on Amazon. Realize that buying cord protectors that go against your wall actually make your home look better too. Splurge an extra bit every month to get decent litter and litterpan liners. Throw out the trash every 3 days without having to wash a box and feel like a king.

Pick up stray “territory poops” on occasion. Remember to exclaim to yourself each time: “wow. These aren’t even like poop. It’s just hard brown grass balls. These are so weird. Shouldn’t I be grossed out by this? Why aren’t these gross? Why can’t our poop be this great? If I ate like a rabbit would my poop be like this?”

Bam. You’ve got a house trained rabbit. And a rabbit-trained person. Move on to the task of convincing them to love you.

u/lilmidjumper · 8 pointsr/HomeDecorating

Your TV is up WAY too high, i would adjust your hanging system to be at least a foot and a half lower than it currently is. You could always get make a TV/bookshelf wall unit to go around it. It covers wires, acts as storage, and fills the space without being in the way. I'd recommend a lighter toned wood color, like a grey or an oaky color. For concealing wires, a big help would already come from lowering your TV, but there are different options such as these https://www.amazon.com/dp/B01JKO8724/ref=cm_sw_r_other_apa_i_coT6CbESXX59N

But some people prefer to do the more hole-poking meeting of cutting a hole where the wire starts, and another hole near the outlet. I personally don't recommend that method especially since you're likely going to have studs in the way. But a thin, long tv console could easily cover a majority of the wires that bother you.

A good method for figuring out the size of furniture you want to buy is to outline the area of space you want the piece to take up using blue painters tape. You can easily adjust the dimensions, and you can run it up a wall to figure out height. Step backwards and sit where you normally would to see if you'd be okay with something that long/tall/wide and adjust until happy. Once you've found the basic dimensions you'd be happy with you can go online and start looking.

I personally wouldn't recommend a free hanging console if cords bother you, it won't conceal much. However if you're worried about a large tv console, you could try a few free hanging shelves below for storage, and some nice simple prints on the wall as well.

u/Ahnteis · 1 pointr/hometheater

Look into the wiremold then and see if you're OK w/ that. (https://smile.amazon.com/dp/B0015EA3P2/ paint it wall color to blend better)

I'd think you could get some used speakers even cheaper, but I'd think something like that would work for now considering your budget.

If your receiver supports 6ohm speakers, you could even go with these while you save up for something better.
https://www.monoprice.com/product?p_id=24738

I have a low-budget system myself, so I put most of my money into a projector and a Denon AVR-X1300W ($300) and bought these speakers: https://www.monoprice.com/product?p_id=10565

It's not going to stand up to many of the systems in this sub, but it works great for my situation, and I can upgrade parts as I go.

u/Petit_Hibou · 8 pointsr/AmateurRoomPorn

You're off to a really great start! I have a few suggestions if you're looking for improvements. There are a lot of suggestions below, but that certainly doesn't indicate that what you've done isn't good. Rather, there are a lot of directions you can take the space and it's up to you to decide how to prioritize.

  • I would NOT get a second cabinet in that same style for the other side, but you do need to finish that side with the speaker. I suggest a basket and plants (see below).
  • I think you'd do great to change the curtains from a solid to a print to liven the space up slightly. The green color is fine, or you could go all-blue or yellow.
  • Get a large basket to store the blankets in so they're not draped over the couch (unless you need them to protect the couch from pets or kids).
  • I don't think the colors of your throw pillows on the couch really work. I'd stick with the blues and tans you already have in the room, but get a large bold pattern.
  • Get at least 2 plants-- one small one to go on the little cabinet, and one large floor one to go on the speaker side of the TV.
  • I'm not sure what the items on top of the cabinet are, but they're the wrong scale. Dress the cabinet up with stuff like a decorative vase, books, a large framed picture etc. Group items together in little clusters rather than spacing them out evenly, and try to vary the heights and textures.
  • It doesn't look like a conventional coffee table would work, but you want somewhere to set a beverage down near the couch. I suggest getting one or maybe two narrow end tables to go by the arms of the couch.
  • Lastly, I'd recommend getting a cable management sleeve to run along the floor on the speaker side to hid that power cord.
u/HowDoIDoFinances · 1 pointr/oculus

Opposite corners, up as high as you can, so they're looking down at you seems to work best if you want 360 coverage with 2 sensors. Unfortunately, that'll probably require you to get extension cables, but they aren't that expensive. The front facing setup that Oculus recommends is really fast and really easy, but losing the ability to turn around in VR really hurts the experience, imo.

If you are able to buy a couple extension cables, I'd really consider trying to get them all the way up in a top corner of the room. You may want to consider a third sensor if you really want to go full room scale, too. I have three sensors mounted up high in 3 out of the 4 corners of my room (2 in front, one in back) and tracking is essentially flawless. It's a little bit of extra work to actually mount something to the wall, but it's worth it if you're setting it up for the long run. I used these mounts.

Having extension cables also gives you extra room to work with so that you can properly route the cables in a neat way instead of having them just hanging loose on the wall. I bought some cable concealers and they pretty much blend into the wall, so you really just see the sensor itself. Looks a lot nicer.

u/Lagomorphilic · 3 pointsr/Rabbits

I don't have too much experience with wire coverings, so hopefully someone more experienced will chime in, but as I see it, the type you mentioned are to essentially give you enough time to stop them eating it. It doesn't totally prevent them from eating through it, especially if they are determined. If you are planing on supervising, then wire covers would work perfectly, but if you are hoping to do free reign without supervision sometimes, then you may want to think of a different solution. Perhaps in addition to the wire covers, you could also move them up out of the way or block off areas with wires. I have my alarm clock wire strung through my bedroom door that lads to my bathroom so its a few feet off the ground, and my fish tank cords I just recently wrapped around the leg of my desk so it's high up off the ground (and looks interesting design wise). You could also just put a pen or cardboard fence over the area so the bunny can't get to it in the first place.

As for your actual question, I was googling it, and this website came up. It seems pretty accurate in terms of rabbit proofing. I found this link at the bottom of the page. perhaps that would work for you?

There is also this that I found, which seems much less abrasive then the other kind as it is smooth.

If you want something permanent that they actually can't chew through, I have seen pictures of people using pvc piping and running it around their house with the wires inside.

These I use the most since they are just plain white/black/brown square boxes that connect to the roof and connects directly to cubicles or the floor and run power/data/phone anything down these with lots of extra room they are simply easy to install but very plain looking.

u/almightybeavis · 1 pointr/setups

Zipties are your best friend, you could even go a little extreme and drill some holes into your desk to fit the cables into comfortably. Or... you could just get a nice rail under your desk:

Really nice setup by the way! You don't see a lotta setups with multiple colors, pretty unique in my opinion.

u/LeftMySoulAtHome · 11 pointsr/GirlGamers

Hi! I also have chronic pain/am disabled. I play Steam games with an Xbox One controller with the Windows 10 wireless adapter. (I tried the Steam Controller but it was bulky, not intuitive, and I basically hated it. lol. YMMV.)

I have my tower sitting in this cabinet, which I covered with this film to keep everything hidden. My husband cut out the back of the cabinet to install a fan / make room for the cables to come out of the back.

We used these cord covers to keep everything neat.

I use this wall-mounted swing arm from Amazon for my monitor. I push it toward the wall when I am done. (I put my chair/station in the corner for this to work.)

I sit in an IKEA Poang chair with ottoman, using this lower lumbar cushion and this coccyx cushion.

I use this mouse arm on the Poang chair, these cushions for my elbows, and a beanbag rest for my wrist (for when I have to use the mouse).

My keyboard sits on a shelf beside me and I pull it onto a lap desk (stored under my chair) for when I need to use it.

I also have a wall mount for my Xbox One controller.

I hope that helps! It took me a long time to get something together that keeps my living room still looking like a living room. :)

u/Lianad311 · 2 pointsr/CableManagement

Your post may be deleted for violating Rule 2 just FYI.

Here are my recommendations though:

  • Mount the surge protector under your desk using heavy duty double stick tape or screws if it has keyholes
  • For your keyboard/mouse cables. If you're willing, the best way is to drill a hole just large enough that they can fit through. Drill it underneath where your large mousemat is. Then cut a tiny slit in the mousemat for them to come through. You can then feed them under down through and under the desk.
  • Mount your USB hub under the desk on the front off to the left or right side from where you sit using command strips or double stick tape. Easy access to plugin items when needed and just unplug devices when not using. If you're using the ports 100% of the time, it may be better to mount it under the desk towards the back out of the way. I use mine only for short term things like pluging in a headset, SD card reader, etc. So when I'm done I just unplug them and it's clean.
  • Under the desk you're going to want to buy some cable clamp type things. Depending on your types of wires you may need a few different sizes. I've bought tiny ones for single thin cables, medium ones for a usb or two, and xlarge ones for power cords/hdmi/multiple cables
  • Depending on your situation, you could also pick up the IKEA Signum rack for under the desk to help with things, or a J Channel cableracewaytype sitution
  • With all of the management and running things under the desk, I personally found I needed to buy a few extenders for different things. So I had to pick up a couple of USB 3 extension cables, as well as a couple of power extension cables so I could get things all cleanly routed then down/up at one single point to the outlet or computer.

    Any other questions just ask. I could always take pictures of my setup and under the desk if it would help, just PM me for those.

You need these. They make cable management super easy and SUPER clean. Otherwise, great set up!

Little bit late, but I used this on this inner bottom of my desk, right against the bottom of the desktop. It's awesome and super easy. Just peel and stick adhesive on the back and it holds a bunch of cables. It would work the same along the backside of a desk as well.

u/Lemon_barr · 2 pointsr/Rabbits

Cables generally should be protected but your rabbit might not even be interested. Usually if they can’t see something they won’t care about it. Your 3D printer and larger pieces of plastic are generally safe. Rabbits like to find small threads and pull at them so big chunks of plastic and glass don’t really do it for them. In general cable management is good practice and satisfying. I hate the look of the rubber hose sleeves so I keep everything in cable runners and boxes. If I’m not using it then I tuck it away.

You could use cord tracks if you can't just put them behind furniture. We used that for our ceiling lamp cord since we don't actually have an electrical box in the ceiling to put a light up. If they're super determined they could probably pull it off the wall, but honestly if they're super determined there's probably not a whole lot you can do. :P

u/thatsawipe · 107 pointsr/battlestations

Sure, so yeah, mostly just take your time. Zip ties are the ideal for stuff you're sure won't be moving (use wirecutters to chop off the extra length after securing it) but the velcro straps that come with e.g. a PSU are better for most other things.

Under the desk I'm using a couple of these: https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B06Y1DVNQD

Really like em and makes it easy to add more cables to the mix without redoing everything.

u/M_A_Draco · 1 pointr/battlestations

Just undid five years worth of accumulated mess. Saw the beautiful workstations on this channel, and just couldn't take the cognitive dissonance anymore.

Installed a raceway and new power strips under the desk. The project took about four hours or so.

This channel had tons of great product and technique suggestions, and this YouTube video was also extremely helpful: https://youtu.be/Uc01oUqmxhE

Here's what I ended up using:

u/nubgrub · 2 pointsr/hometheater

I second this. What /u/team_xbladz linked is pretty good, especially for the price (I use a white version for my wires). A bit more expensive are [plastic sleeves] (https://www.amazon.com/Wiremold-CMK10-Mate-Cord-Organizer/dp/B0015EA3P2/ref=sr_1_6?ie=UTF8&qid=1473185744&sr=8-6&keywords=cable+hider). It would probably cost $60-90 though to do your whole room. You could paint them the color of what you need as well. Lowes and HomeDepot usually have a good selection of cable hiders. They look pretty good when set up, especially if you match them with the base board color.

u/deepak483 · 1 pointr/StandingDesks

I have these under my desk

https://www.amazon.com/dp/B01BVYW7UY/ref=cm_sw_r_cp_awdb_t1_o6CRDbQ8HP2E5

super easy to do just with 3M Velcro strips attached under the table.

Add some wire sleeves and your good to enjoy the clutter free view.

u/pork-belly · 2 pointsr/pcmasterrace

-cable tray(s) $22 - perfect for screwing into a think desk like yours, power strips can live in here as well

-nylon/velcro ties $7 - possibly cheaper at your local hardware store

With kush white walls like that a lil cable management might improve how you feel walking in every day!

Nice setup. Foot warmer could use some RGB tho

u/XenIsNotVerySmart · 1 pointr/pcmasterrace

Great setup! I have a few quick and easy suggestions. To clean up the setup, get some stuff off of the desk. You can use this headphone hanger (https://www.amazon.com/Stainless-Headphone-Headset-Hanger-Holder/dp/B06Y3XG769/ref=mp_s_a_1_3?keywords=stainless+steel+headphone+under+desk&qid=1550788167&s=gateway&sr=8-3) and just stick it up to the bottom of your desk. You could also try buying a cable box (https://www.amazon.com/Multipurpose-Ventilated-Cable-Box-Management/dp/B06XXGWW55/ref=mp_s_a_1_5?keywords=cable+box&qid=1550788313&s=gateway&sr=8-5) to hide the power strip and then some cable sleeves (https://www.amazon.com/gp/slredirect/picassoRedirect.html/ref=pa_sp_phone_search_atf_aps_sr_pg1_1?ie=UTF8&adId=A01221601V9IX8PNJM5J1&url=%2FManagement-Sleeve-JOTO-Computer-Entertainment%2Fdp%2FB015HWXG4M%2Fref%3Dmp_s_a_1_1_sspa%3Fkeywords%3Dcable%2Bsleeve%26qid%3D1550788342%26s%3Dgateway%26sr%3D8-1-spons%26psc%3D1%26smid%3DA2C3SMXXIDC93V&qualifier=1550788342&id=5936119191257&widgetName=sp_phone_search_atf) to hide the cables going to and from. Also, you can just remove some stuff from the floor around it, and get a cable raceway (https://www.amazon.com/Channel-Cable-Raceway-Black-Length/dp/B002DNM42O/ref=mp_s_a_1_3?keywords=cable+raceway+j&qid=1550788397&s=gateway&sr=8-3) to assist with the cables under the desk. Great setup! I highly approve of the mic mounting position, but align the right speakers angle with the left (OCD lol). The most important thing is probably the cable box (I'm a cable management nerd. Hope what I said helps.

TL:DR

Cable box for power strip and cable sleeves for wires to and from, hook for Corsairs (I think?), Declutter.

u/freespace303 · 13 pointsr/hometheater

Good on you for going with a gigantic screen. Plenty of upgrade potential sound system wise as well. What projector are you using? Short throw?

A few recommendations - bring those fronts down to ear level, and rears down to about the recommended height of 3 feet above ear level when you are sitting. You could use a stand for the left rear - https://www.amazon.com/dp/B002HZHUCW/

If your worried about stand stability, use a barbell weight on top of the baseplate to weigh the stand down and make it more secure - https://www.amazon.com/dp/B003072HC4/

If you don't end up being able to go into the wall to hide cables you could try a paintable cable hider...not as pretty as putting them in the wall but kind of the next best thing...can be a good temporary solution...something like this

I wanted to share a couple pictures of the desk set up and also some of the accessories I purchased. My expirience with Fully was great. I got the Jarvis3 with Walnut veneer in a72x60 size.

u/avramce · 3 pointsr/gamecollecting

As everyone said, immediate win would be zip-ties or velcro to manage the excess length, you can get a 100M spool of twist ties from a dollar store or homedepot or online. For the more permanent cables like the power cables, you can fix them to the back wall with wire channels, for the power bricks, you can free them from the powerstrip with either a power squid or a short extension cable. Lastly, for multiple cords that are going in the same direction or through the same hole on your entertainment center, consider a cable sleeve to clean up the look.

u/fatmandown · 4 pointsr/pcmasterrace

https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B002DNM42O/ref=oh_aui_detailpage_o03_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1

That's the 48" version but they make shorter ones. The stick-on tape on the back is surprisingly good, but if you're really going to weigh it down with heavier cables you may want to put some extra adhesive on the back. So far I love it.

u/iMremedyz · 1 pointr/gamerooms

I drilled some holes in the walls and ran the cables, but that can be kind of expensive if you don't already have the tools (Here's a video if your curious https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=e2--l-YX1HU ).

But this isn't always necessary. Here's another video https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xSqbXl5m4_o

My asshole dear bunnies love chewing them and have more than once broken the optic fiber Internet cables so we ended up buying cable covers/organizers which stick to the wall like these ones: https://www.amazon.com/Cable-Concealer-Wall-Cover-Raceway/dp/B01JKO8724

I hope that helps more than having to hide them while you pray for them not to discover the cords.

(Really cute cat, by the way)

u/redrage97 · 1 pointr/computertechs

never seen one 'fool' proof. When you got people swearing by them you have someone that hasn't been screwed by one yet lol.

sure sure.. some of that could be user error.. but if you make a user error on something like this you don't have to re-run the whole cable.

plus tacking something down on a wall looks kinda well aweful where as something like this looks pretty good when done decently.. but more work.

EDIT: if you read the last part of my first comment i said you probably won't damage it.. but that one time.... you know.. murphy's law.

I feel ya. Yeah, ditch the zip ties forever, that's the worst strategy.

You can stick these on the back of your furniture and cleanly route your cables down the legs and such: https://www.google.com/search?q=3m+command+cable+clips&tbm=isch

You could also try something like this, if it's not too thick for your furniture. It looks ugly from the back, but who cares. I believe it's designed to be easily trimmed to fit your needs.

Oh, in that case, a cheap wiremold kit is probably your best bet. Make sure it's the plastic though, you don't want to deal with cutting the metal version.

FYI, I'm not an electrician, I just enjoy spending copious amounts of time from early spring through summer accomplishing random home improvement projects on the weekends.

EDIT: This will probably do the job; also, you can paint it to match your walls.

u/giggly_kisses · 4 pointsr/battlestations

Here are the parts I used:

  • cable raceway
  • cable clips
  • indoor mounting squares
  • velcro cable ties

    The cable raceway and the cable clips made the biggest difference. In the past I would just use the velcro strips, which would help with making the cables look more clean, but not with hiding them altogether.

    The process I used was:

  • unplug everything from your computer and lay them over your desk in straight lines so you can see all the cables you'll need to route.
  • find a good spot for the raceway leaving enough room for a power strip to sit behind it. I had to cut the raceway to fit my desk. Once it's sized correctly, stick it to the bottom of your desk.
  • Route a single wire at a time. I started with the wires coming from my monitor first since they were the furthest away from my tower. I also did the power cables last since they were the biggest and weren't being routed to the tower.
  • Once everything is routed in the raceway then start using the cable clips to make sure the cables follow the path cleanly.
  • Use the velcro strips to keep hanging wires together.

u/yacht_boy · 1 pointr/DIY

The search term you're looking for is "cable trays." There are hundreds of variants, but something like this might work for you. Lifehacker also has a tag for DIY cable management. You want a cable tray that can sit between the two tables.

Or if you really just want to keep the tables with a half inch gap or so between them and have the cables drop down to the floor (but please, for the love of all that is holy, put in a decent cable management system instead), you could stick some shims (or even cheaper) pointy end down between the two tables on each end.

u/theskytheclouds · 1 pointr/DeskCableManagement

Is there an update on this? Would love to see something! I would love to tackle this LOL

I would first unplug everything and figure out what wires are connecting to what and where. I would also recommend a new spot for your power outlet. Buy USB extension cables for more flexibility. Purchase Cable Raceway and 3m Double sided tape to go under your desk. Buy Velcro cable ties Connect your Mouse to your keyboard if you have the option to. Run all wires through the raceway. Buy a Cable Management Box for your power outlet. Buy a three or four tier drawer where you can keep accessories like our Vive, GoPro and controllers. Buy a cable/electronic organizer to organize your cables that you are not using and anything else you don't use, place them in the drawer.

u/aestes89 · 1 pointr/malelivingspace

No problem, yeah it definitely helps to see it before you buy it. I never adjust the legs to standing. Not saying you can't, but it would be a huge hassle, as you'd have to adjust each leg individually. However, I'm a tall guy, so I like that I can make this desk a LOT taller than any desk at OfficeDepot.

For cable management, I bought:

and attached it to the bottom with some short wood screws. It does the job ok, but there are probably cheaper options, not to mention I didn't measure and had to cut it to size with a hacksaw as it was WAY longer than I thought it'd be. Does an OK job of hiding cables though, and pretty sturdy. I believe ikea sells something similar for pretty cheap though. Maybe look while you're there:

u/GbMaxSE · 3 pointsr/BudgetAudiophile

As I mentioned... $400-$500 is the absolute bottom basement cost to get a super beginner 5.1 setup. I'd rather see you spend $500 and replace the S530BT AVR with a Denon X1400H for $330. You'd have much more future capability with that receiver, but ultimately at this stage the speakers are more important.

u/lafferty_daniel · 3 pointsr/ultrawidemasterrace

I don't think it quite "spoils" it, that is a bit harsh. I think it looks great.

I would get some cable concealer, something like this. You probably don't need that much but it would be perfect for under the monitor. You don't need as much that is in the link I provided but I like to keep some around because it is very easy to cut them for other setups in the house.

u/DoomRyGuy · 1 pointr/desksetup

They also have the multi cable organizers as well, like this one, but since you want to conceal your cables that may not suit you.

I think your idea can work. There are also these types of runways, where you have many points of entry/exit holes for your wires. But this may be too big for on top of the desk.

I think a laptop stand may also help with getting the cables routed in one spot.

Interested in what you come up with.

u/throwveryfaraway3 · 21 pointsr/malelivingspace

Do you own or rent?

Your speaker setup could be vastly improved by just spreading them out to their appropriate space thereby creating a better cinematic experience while watching television, as well as decluttering your AV hutch a bit further.

If you own, you route your baseboards to run the wires, if you rent, you can buy self adhesive tracks which will hide the wires. It's not much work and makes a huge difference. Said wires can then be reused for when/if you upgrade.

Also the subwoofer can be totally hidden away since bass/low frequencies tend to be non directional. You can even get slim units that slip under your sofa so the effect is more pronounced at lower volumes.

Although for all I've said, I'm really nitpicking. Your space is great.



Obviously, larger ones for more wires, just not too slim.

u/peraspera441 · 1 pointr/googlefiber

If wireless turns out to be a flakey solution your wife might find it acceptable if you use a small paintable, plastic raceway to hide a cord for the TV. We used this one in my mom's 1890's house, https://amazon.com/gp/product/B0015EA3P2/ref=ppx_yo_dt_b_search_asin_title?ie=UTF8&psc=1. It looks like it's part of the baseboard so isn't noticeable and it was super easy to install.

u/Arcendus · 1 pointr/battlestations

Cable management can be easy or hard, depending on how you want to go about it. If you're looking for an easy solution and don't need to fiddle with cables too much once they're hidden, I'd definitely recommend using a raceway.

u/C_64 · 2 pointsr/oculus

Oh, I'd love white sensors - it'd be a much better match for most homes.

Given that I'm in an apartment, I'm just not willing to take the risk + effort running the cords behind the wall. But now that I'm pretty certain I've got the final location for my sensors set, I can consider using cord covers to hide them. Like these things:
https://smile.amazon.com/Wiremold-C110-1-channel-CordMate-White/dp/B00004W3ZP

u/chandler404 · 1 pointr/interiordecorating

For starters, maybe get the cords hidden a bit with something like this: Wiremold CMK10 Mate Cord Organizer Kit https://www.amazon.com/dp/B0015EA3P2/ref=cm_sw_r_cp_api_frUOzbMPCWMB2

You may even want to wrap the power cord around the AC unit so it doesn't drop down and that huge knot isn't sitting there.

Cord hider will also be good to run down the wall - maybe you could even plug in a short extension cord so the big nub for whatever else needs to be plugged in sits on the floor instead of on the wall.

I don't know if the switch next to the power outlet powers anything, or if it's just for the AC. You could look into different outlets that may clean up how that looks.

Short cord runs, cord hiders, and right angles will make this look a lot cleaner.

u/nmezib · 2 pointsr/Vive

To keep the room looking tidy, I highly recommend wire channels like this one: https://www.amazon.com/Legrand-Wiremold-CMK10-Cordmate-Cover/dp/B0015EA3P2/

They're easily found in hardware stores (at least in the US). They do a great job sticking permanently, and you can paint over them.

I think going in wall is always the best look but if that's not an option I've used this wire hider in my room and then painted over it and it does look pretty good.

u/Goonshine · 2 pointsr/wireless

While I agree that running a cable is the best plan it can also be unsightly or a pain to deal with. Especially if you need to open up holes in the home to get it run correctly. If you are needing to punch through drywall, open holes from the exterior to the interior, or drill through any supports then you might want to talk to a contractor instead of doing it yourself. If it looks like you can run a cable through some existing space in your house though then go for it.

One other thing you can try that won't cost you much is to move the wireless router to a more central location. This might get you what you need, though if the walls are concrete then maybe not.

When cabling in the interior you can use cable ducts and runs to keep the cable safe, and minimize the eyesore it will make. See an example here.

Powerline adapter is also a straightforward choice that uses the power cables already available in your house, so look into that if you can.

u/orcinovein · 3 pointsr/malelivingspace

This is a 100% improvement OP. The chair and the bigger sofa were the perfect change. The Ikea lamp ties in with the bigger furniture and doesn't feel so big and overwhelming like it did before. Extremely well done.

Couple more suggestions, I would route the rear speaker wires behind the painting too and then down the middle. Then use a cable cover that runs from the bottom of the art down behind the couch to conceal the cords. Purchase a couple of patterned/accent pillows and throws to add some color to the room and you're money.

I also live in a small room so I know the struggle. If you can get a couple easy install shelves on each side of the jersey and put your trophies on there it would look really nice and free up bunch of space from the cabinet (which is definitely too big for that room), you'd be able to move your couch all the way over.

​

Also couple cable runners for the TV and maybe the LEDS. Also maybe an area rug (got mine for $20 at Walmart) Bam 5x better than most college dorms!

​

Edit: Didn't notice the door there at first so you wont be able to push the couch over anyways.. Hmm, maybe consider putting the bed in-front of the window instead (fame looks quite girthy though!) And put the couch where the bed is now? Would be some work and the TV wouldn't be in-front of the bed (unless you moved it to the door wall) but I feel like that would be the most open layout if that's your thing.

Then screw in a large strip cord to the bottom: https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B0036DEC48/ref=ppx_yo_dt_b_asin_title_o09_s02?ie=UTF8&psc=1

Some cable clips to top it off (use your favorite style, there are plenty): https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B075Y9J42T/ref=ppx_yo_dt_b_asin_title_o07_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1

Then run them down the legs from the bottom of the desk, just use Velcro straps or something :)

Here are both of my main setups using only those products: https://imgur.com/a/67TxbQQ

buy these .. 23 dolllars and will make room a ton better. Would also get one of these and put them on the top of ceiling. 40 bucks for a quick little makeover! Also would order more of those red and black "acoustic panels" and get like a 48 pack and fill in the holes on the wall you have! Hope this helps

u/Crimtide · 1 pointr/pcmasterrace

Definitely looks cool.. do you know what I mean by a race way? White cover for everything.. makes your PC look like it's floating =D Like THIS

u/GaveUpMyGold · 2 pointsr/battlestations

These little trays are even better. Easy to install with a standard drill, and they'll hold a surge protector and all the plugs. https://www.amazon.com/dp/B01BVYW7UY/

Also, I love these reusable tie thingies. You can double them up for big cable bundles. https://www.amazon.com/dp/B01M7TAL4F/

u/korpo53 · 4 pointsr/homelab

They have that cable raceway stuff that sticks to the wall and you can run cables through. It certainly looks better than a bunch of blue cables everywhere.

Do be careful though, some of these have glue on the back that's strong enough to pull your paint off the walls when you try to remove it... use a heat gun or some goo gone or something to soften that first.

https://www.amazon.com/D-Line-Raceway-1D3015W-Electrical-Paintable/dp/B077YD9DG6/

For going through doorways, if you have carpet, just pull it up a bit and cram cables under and around. If you don't have carpet, use a small drill to put a hole between the two rooms and a tiny bit of some kind of sealant to make it pretty. When you move out, pull the cable out and patch the hole.

u/Burner2K0 · 1 pointr/battlestations

Yes some are rolled up and tied together. I think most of them are a decent length so I don't need to extend em. I'll look for that IKEA thing in a bit but what I have so far is this from Amazon that works but I think is a bit short, though it came with two. I'll the try the mic position, looks like a good spot.

u/sup3rmark · 1 pointr/DIY

looks pretty good!

i would definitely recommend some wire molding to hide that coax cable, though, or at least tack it down along the wall with some of these.

u/thefriendlypenis · 2 pointsr/pcmasterrace

Def recommend getting a larger mousepad. Maybe one like this: https://www.amazon.com/dp/B014OOWMHQ/ref=cm_sw_r_cp_api_i_Au6-AbC5FABAT.

You should also utilize the space on that desk a little better by moving your case further right. It’ll give you room to mount, or at least stand those speakers up correctly. Also a headset stand would go a long way.

Another thing that could help improve your setup is cleaning up those cables strewn across your desk. You can do this easily by using something like this: https://www.amazon.com/dp/B06XZPYP7Y/ref=cm_sw_r_cp_api_i_bA6-AbVKJMBSB

Sorry for the long comment my dude. I’d give your setup a 5/10 but that number won’t be hard to increase with some minor adjustments.

u/wolf39us · 1 pointr/pcmasterrace

J Channel Raceway

Get a raceway if your desk can support it. WORTH IT.

u/Ravahan · 2 pointsr/battlestations

you could put somethine like this, on top of the shelving unit and run the cables through it, will hide them pretty decent i think

hope it helps

u/zilla0100 · 2 pointsr/HomeImprovement

The easy solution would just be a box and a sticky back wire trough. It isnt as pretty as some more intrusive fixes but it would be easy and cheap and look around 300% more professional.

Put all the splices in a box with a blank face and have the wires come out straight into the wire trough that sticks to the wall until they dive back into the drywall. The troughs even come with 90's to do the turn.

Something like this,

https://www.amazon.com/Stageek-Management-Concealer-Organizer-Computers/dp/B07FFN2HN6

you can get them in different colors. I use white to conceal my VR setup base station power cables.

Or you could start cutting open the drywall to put the cables in and patch it up. You'll still probably need a box to access those connections though, I'm not sure what code is for that stuff.

u/Lee_Ars · 6 pointsr/homelab

It's a super-cheap 1U cable management tray from Amazon :D The front panel is a little flimsy, but it works perfectly fine for shoving cables into.

u/drtonmeister · 2 pointsr/HomeImprovement

I'd be pretty upset with that. You could order the Lutron power-panel kit:

http://www.lutron.com/TechnicalDocumentLibrary/085312.pdf

I'm betting the barrel plugs are the most common 2.1mm x 5.5mm size used for security cameras. If that is so, there is lots of stuff available to run several from one power-supply, for example this multi-barrel-connector power supply kit with a few of these power extensions. There are also similar things for 12V Christmas lighting that are more likely to be white cables.

I'd also use a raceway kit to conceal the cables.

The Lutron kit sure looks like a standard multicamera power supply for security cameras.

u/CasualEjaculator · 1 pointr/pcmasterrace

If you don’t wanna break the drywall and run your cords through the wall, try some some of these. They work well and look very clean. I used them for my wall mounted tv in my house and it looks great.

u/E-werd · 2 pointsr/cableadvice

This is a tough one because you have a glass desktop. I think the best option would be cable raceway. You can get a kit something like this. Here is a better explanation of what it actually is.

Keep the visible bundle relatively tight and the pathway deliberate. You would probably have to find a way to lengthen the cables to make this work.

u/slaymance · 1 pointr/DeskCableManagement

I use the StarTech cable raceway and it has done absolute wonders for my cable management. I have a sit/stand desk with no back, so having cables hanging down from my desk was not an option. So I got this raceway and attached it to the underside of my desk using some Scotch mounting tape. Some of my notes:

  • Made of soft plastic, so I was able to cut it with wire cutters to fit the length of my desk
  • Slots along the entire length, so cables can come in from all directions
  • Lots of space and I still have plenty of room after having all my cables stuffed in there. If your desk is decently long, it shouldn't have trouble storing a modern laptop power brick
  • Low profile and sits unseen behind my desk's crossbar support
u/vexlit · 1 pointr/battlestations

Of course :) I recently bought these: https://www.amazon.co.uk/gp/product/B07FFN2HN6/ref=ppx_yo_dt_b_asin_title_o00_s01?ie=UTF8&psc=1 and find them quite useful but I don't know if they're available outside the UK. One thing to bear in mind is to make sure if you have a wired headset or mouse that it has enough space. I solved this by letting my headset cord loose behind the drawers and it's working really well so far!

u/CountyChocula · 1 pointr/battlestations

Beautiful work my man. I love a well-built, simple, clean, floating table. If you want to rid yourself of the visible cables, try running something like this across the corners.

Do you find yourself rubbing your chair handles against that trim? I want to add the trim like yours, but I already bash the chair into the edge of my table with noticeable poly scrubbing off.

u/MmmmThatsTasty · 1 pointr/battlestations

Hmm interesting concept. I could probably achieve something similar via different means.

For me I used hockey tape (nice matte black fabric like tape) and taped my Razer Firefly wire to itself, and ran it and my mouse cable (with some slack for movement) under my keyboard, then taped all 3 together and ran it to the back of my desk under my sound bar so it "looks" like only a single large cable going to the back of the desk.

Underneath I have a surge protector and a usb hub stuck with double-sided 3M automotive adhesive (I use this stuff for everything). and then these in expensive adhesive J-channel cable race for wires.

I also got rid of my center support leg in exchange for a heavy duty shelf bracket.

u/lax01 · 2 pointsr/hometheater

Thanks...and yes, I need to hide the cables but since I am renting, I don't want to put anymore holes in the wall. So I was thinking something like this or this

It really doesn't even bother me that much...its such a small visible section and you can't see it in the dark. I will still clean it up.

u/mike2048 · 1 pointr/mildlyinteresting

Not bad, stand does not look too heavy to move away from the wall in case you need to make changes. Pro-tips (used to wire AV racks):

  • Whenever possible use velcro instead of zipties
  • Label your cables on each end with a number / letter
  • Use a raceway to manage a large number of cables

    I Like the stand design, works nicely for multiple systems. You can add a metal angle right behind the top trim piece to take out the sag.
u/uppastbedtime · 3 pointsr/buildapc

Just to add to this, the simple step is to protect the cords, like /u/Yoko042684 mentioned. Raise the cables off the floor and put them in some kind of cable raceway that will also cover corners and turns, like this set.

Benefits to this method is it will be much harder for the rats to chew on the cables. Also a raceway will eliminate cable clutter on the floor and clear up a tripping hazard as well.

u/kerta1n · 1 pointr/battlestations

#1. I know a lot have people have said this, but always, when showing off your battle station, have a uniform color (in your case, make the all of the RGB lights white). Also, if you want the setup to look extremely clean, remove all of your desktop icons and put the essentials either in your taskbar or your start menu. This will make it so it looks professional.
#2: Cable management is pretty clean, maybe try this, as this will help hide all of the cables under your desk, except for the PC, which I would pull out a bit more slack so some of the wire can be hidden behind the cabinets.
#3: (Optional) If your budget has some room, maybe get an (RGB) light strip behind your desk (or if you have one) as this will contribute more to the theme of your setup.

u/SolIII · 1 pointr/buildapc

I wouldn't recommend doing it wireless. It might work out but latency will probably be an issue. An HDMI cable would be the best choice, you could maybe get something like this to hide it with.

u/pencilvester_C137 · 2 pointsr/malelivingspace

Perfect! I have one very similar to that for my bedroom TV but with 90-degree corners too and am a big fan. You can also easily paint them to match the wall color. There's also a wider one I have in my living room that can hold more cables.

Thinner one I have:

u/Murdopolis · 5 pointsr/battlestations

Haha thanks! I took a lot of time to make sure they were hidden. I used the monitor mounts (that have cable clips) to run the cables to the monitors and everything is tucked into a cable "raceway" attached to the back of the desk.

Here is a link to it.
https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B002DNM42O/ref=oh_aui_search_detailpage?ie=UTF8&psc=1

u/EmpireCityRay · 4 pointsr/malelivingspace

OP if you use this suggestion make sure that the extension chord is UL certified as you seem to use a lot of outlets. (I would go with a thick extension chord found at your Home Depot/Lowe's.) Finishing it off with this:
https://www.amazon.com/dp/B0015EDVVU

My suggestion would be get a [UL listed] surge protector and purchase and place it in this
https://www.amazon.com/dp/B01E1E20AI
My method would allow you to lessen the visibility of wires and with a desk and great chord management (snaking the wires behind the leg) you can make it look like you have no wires or outlet box. The scented air freshener should be moved IMO as it wouldn't work in the linked box, if you opt to keep it you can leave the biege tap box and it on it with another outlet in the tap box for the surge protector.

u/randallphoto · 2 pointsr/homelab

I bought this and ran it along the back edge of my desk and it's been great. Pretty large, the adhesive has never unstuck (been more than a year)

u/CynosureEPR · 6 pointsr/Battletops

Can do you one worse; there's like 5 of these under the desk: https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B06XZPYP7Y/ and a bunch of little circular wire grips/etc. along with my network switches/hubs/surge protectors all fixed to the bottom side of the desk.

..but as upgrades happened over the year(s) I've been popping out cables here and cables in there. It's hard to plan where each cable needs to go, which hub needs to be used, which power supply to connect to, etc. with a desk this long. I end up moving them around a lot until I find the perfect length cable/hub for practical use. I think it's all about where I want it now though. On top of that, my laptop and a lot of the gear need to be readily mobilized.

The plan is to create an under-desk diagram, unplug every cable and rewire the entire office neatly sometime soon; I may have time this Thanksgiving weekend.

u/keep_on_churning · 2 pointsr/InteriorDesign

I would get a smaller couch, then move that black chair to sit next to it at an angle. Once you do that, you’ll have some space to move that lamp out from the corner a bit.

Speaking of, what does that blue cord go to? The lamp? I assume there isn’t a plug in the corner, so I’d recommend getting some white raceways to hide the cable running over there. (https://www.amazon.com/dp/B0015EDVVU)

Paint the frame around the AC white, and clean it!

Then, plants in pots and open the blinds. Let that natural light in. :)

u/Bumblebee__Tuna · 3 pointsr/battlestations

Gorgeous lighting!

For cable management, check these out. Alongside zip-ties, they helped me out a ton. And that monitor is big enough to wall mount. If you do that, get some cable organizers for the wall. Something like this.

u/DecrepitBob · 2 pointsr/battlestations

for sure man

dunno if this is a thing based on the unknown size of the domicile you are currently in, but if you or other residents were having issues with connecting to Wifi or it's speeds, i would mount the router higher than it is to extend it's range and reduce interference. For the power and ethernet cables that will have to go back down to the floor, you can utilize cable organizers like this to hide them neatly

u/DrMackDDS2014 · 1 pointr/hometheater

Try something like this maybe:

Wiremold C110 1-channel CordMate Kit, White https://www.amazon.com/dp/B00004W3ZP/ref=cm_sw_r_cp_api_7EtJxbW42YS09

This stuff is paintable and can help give you a clean install right up against your baseboards without having to staple.

u/victorlua · 2 pointsr/DIY

I would use zip ties or Velcro - or better yet, one of those cable management channel from Amazon or found in the electric supply section of most home improvement stores and use 3M command strips to attach to the wall or desk/bed.

u/GinNJews · 1 pointr/battlestations

I used a lot of velcro strips and spiral wrap. I'd reccomend these over zip ties so when you upgrade cables or get new components you can reuse your straps. I still need to get one of those cable boxes to put my surge protector into though. If you end up getting a desk with an open back then these help out a lot too. It helps that I have a half backboard to help hide things.

u/skookum_qq · 1 pointr/MonsterHunterWorld

Buy this. Super easy to install.

u/IanPPK · 3 pointsr/pcmasterrace

Velcro One Wrap and a cable tunnel will help you plenty. If you want to go a little overkill, a surge protector enclosure will help keep the electronics without a converter brick a little more organized. The former two things should do more than enough if you organize it well.

u/LigerRider · 3 pointsr/audiophile

Alright then, here's mine in all its humble glory. Cables from tv, cd/dvd, and turntable are concealed within white snap-together cable/cord concealer (no power cords) along the baseboard. Otherwise everything is organized and secured with Velcro tie/straps behind the media console, and with the audio rack. The power cords are sorted, bound, and routed along the side of the rack to keep them separated from the low voltage cabling, which is routed through the holes in the center-back of the rack shelves, likewise Velcro tied, and wrapped with velcro/neoprene wrapper. It's not as end-game cable management as I'd like, but I'm still searching for that prefec solution.

Also, a mouse bungee would do you wonders. That, or loosely Velcroing your mouse wire to your keyboard wire so they stay uniform. Oh, and you'd probably benefit from a headphone stand. Last things that comes to mind are a vesa mount for your monitors, an extended mouse pad, some LED's behind your desk and monitor, and perhaps finding another place to put your PC. You can always extend cables.

u/sonsofaureus · 2 pointsr/AskBattlestations

If your desk allows, I think cable runways are pretty good for hiding wires below the desk. Velcro cable ties are also nice.

u/TexasForever_ · 5 pointsr/battlestations

You should buy some cable concealers then get them painted to match your wall. Not better than hiding them in the walls obviously, but it's the best you can do for renting a place.

u/Cyrax89721 · 6 pointsr/CableManagement

Easy enough!



Beyond that, I use velcro straps, clear tape, double sided tape, cable sleeves, and zip ties depending on the circumstance. Doing an Amazon search for Cable Management will also help get you some ideas.

Decent, and the adhesive is really really strong. Tried to correct the allignment and it tore some of the wall towards the bottom lol.

u/BassheadGamer · 1 pointr/AskBattlestations

You didn’t state a budget so I’m just gonna suggest these for more room/ cleaner work area: Bigger desk (at least 55” in width), monitor mounts, cable raceways/cable box for all of your cable management needs.

For a desk I would suggest looking into something like an IKEA Bekant, the one I linked is the bigger one, 63” x 31”and that should give you more room to work with for textbooks on the desk.

For monitors mounting is best (imo) so you can have that much more room to push stuff alll the way back to take advantage of the depth. This monitor arm Is good.

For cable management I would suggest this raceway. It comes with 9 15” long pieces that you can mount under your desk. I would use some command strips to hold them in place. Use the raceway to feed all your cables through to a cable management box, Something similar to this one, so you can stuff in the excess cables and make it look nicer. Just have the box behind your pc or along on of the desk legs.
NOTE: the IKEA Bekant does come included with a cable management pouch/net under the desk but imo with 2 monitors, a switch, and keyboard it would be too much worse for that little thing.

Ps: you don’t have to use the stuff I listed, there’s always alternatives if you have a question just ask, I’ll see if I can help.

since no one is giving suggestions on how to cable manage, ill help out.

use velcro straps to help run the cables along the posts going up the desk and entertainment center

https://www.amazon.com/VELCRO-Brand-Reusable-Fastening-Organizing/dp/B001E1Y5O6/ref=sr_1_8?crid=2CELM9CIVWUT3&keywords=velcro+straps&qid=1557866180&s=gateway&sprefix=velvro+str%2Caps%2C429&sr=8-8

​

use cable boxes for hiding power strips and excess cables

​

if you dont want to use the boxes and have them sit on the floor, you could mount the power strip under your desk using 3m adhesive tape.

​

use these raceways for routing cables up walls, and for the power strip cables that need to go from the wall plug to the power strip

​

and use these raceways to run the cables under the desk to your peripherals. cut them as needed to fit, or just make sure to leave gaps for the cables to leave the raceway and not sag

> avoid mounting stuff permanently

Getting married will solve that issue. Its called commitment, and nothing says commitment like mounting your base stations permanently. But seriously, I don't see how the little wall mount brackets screwed up high in the corners of the room is MORE intrusive than the big poles spanning floor to ceiling.. I mean if your taking them down all the time, then you gotta store them someplace etc.. etc.. The brackets\basestations use 1/4 20 screw mounts, so if you want a quick snap in\out mechanism look to quick connect camera mounts. Something like this, but there are many alternatives..

To hide the power cables use simple surface mount "cord minders" running up the corner of the wall. Its nice neat finish. https://www.amazon.com/Wiremold-CMK50-Cord-Mate-Kit/dp/B0015EDVVU/ref=pd_lpo_60_bs_tr_img_2?_encoding=UTF8&psc=1&refRID=W7C644G4CEJ1B83NMADJ

Okay. So wall mounted sensors are definitely the way to go. I got these:
Uxcell 1/4" Black CCTV Security Camera Metal Wall Mount Bracket https://www.amazon.com/dp/B00UVCKZZ2/ref=cm_sw_r_cp_apip_VYT6El8hJxCub

But the wires right? Well for those I got these:
Wiremold C110 1-channel CordMate Kit, White https://www.amazon.com/dp/B00004W3ZP/ref=cm_sw_r_cp_apip_CCv9zLkKoD43V

Then I have 10ft USB 3.0 extension cables on two sensors and a 16ft active USB 2.0 cable on my third sensor.

I ran the cables along the baseboard with the cord mate runners. They are white which matches my baseboards and then I run the cord mates with the sensor cables inside up the walls in the corners.

Shit works. Tracking is flawless. It's barely noticeable and I never have to mess with them now that they are setup.

When it comes to vr don't be surprised if you need to rearrange the layout of your furniture in the computer room. Think long and hard and then commit.

It helps if you draw this shit out first and think about how to lay out it before doing anything. This project will take a day but once your done your done.

u/Geedunk · 3 pointsr/battlestations

Leave a little space between your desk and the wall and either get a cable tray or check and see if your surge protector has slots on the bottom that you can use to hang it off screws.

Braided sleeving and velco strips will work wonders, or use a combination of the two depending on how much you have to deal with. It's on you to hide all of it behind your monitor stand for minimal appearance, but with a little work it'll look great!

u/dmanners · 2 pointsr/homelab

Here's what I've got in between the switches. They're entirely for cable management, and they get the job done well.

As far as Synology over Drobo, FreeNAS, or QNAP? My office purchased a Synology for a project and I fell in love with how simple it was. I couldn't really break it, no matter how hard I tried :)

If you want a cheap alternative you can get paintable cable covers that I think look pretty good. http://www.amazon.com/Legrand-CMK50-Cord-Mate-Kit/dp/B0015EDVVU

Not bad now look into a cable concealer and clean up those cables. Should be fairly cheap and it will look a lot nicer.

u/iamnerd · 1 pointr/hometheater

It's a fire hazard to run a normal power cable inside a wall. You could use a cord cover like this one on Amazon.com I'm using the same type product in my bedroom and it looks great once you paint it to match.

If you do want to run your cables in the wall, you could use a kit like this one from Monoprice.com. You have to hard-wire the outlets together using solid copper wiring. The lower outlet gets power from the included power cord, which allows you to hook your TV up to your surge protector. This is the setup i have in my living room. It's a bigger pain in the butt to set up, but it looks nicer in the long run.

If I had to do it all over again, I would probably opt for the cord cover in both rooms.

If you're able to attach something like this | https://www.amazon.com/WireTamer-Cable-Management-Tray-Black/dp/B01BVYW7UY/ref=sr_1_8?s=electronics&ie=UTF8&qid=1485910978&sr=1-8&keywords=cable+raceway | to your desk then you would be able hide all the cables on the underside of the desk and you would also be able to place your power strip in it depending on the size. If I was you then I would orient the desktop so that the cables coming from the back are facing the wall but I completely understand if you want to display the inside of your system , so if you're going to keep it in that orientation then I would also get some cable sleeving of some sort such as | https://www.amazon.com/Bluelounge-SB-BL-Cable-Director-Black/dp/B00MXC4T7S/ref=pd_sim_229_55?_encoding=UTF8&psc=1&refRID=WPPWJ0E7AQ1CCYKYZ2JF |
so that all your cables are in one neat strand.

u/AlmightyGnasher · 5 pointsr/battlestations

Bought everything. The desk itself is from Etsy. I stuck cable raceways around the outside of the desk, they're awesome I recommend them. Other than that double sided sticky pads and cable clips come in handy for sticking power packs and extension leads under the desk.

u/nguy8931 · 12 pointsr/buildapcsales

I also have this desk. This is my setup at full height:

Monitor Arms: North Bayou Arms

Monitors: Dell U2417H 24" monitors

Keyboard: Ducky One Side Print 100% Keyboard

Mouse: Logitech MX Master (Meteorite)

Mouse Pad:PECHAM Extended Pad

Speakers: Logitech Z313

Chair: Amazon Basic Mid-Back Chair

Lamp: Desk Lamp

Drawers: IKEA Alex

Plants: Random succulents from Trader Joe's

Wallpapers: Studio Ghibli Wallpapers (1920x1080)

​

Cable Management: involves the cable raceway attached below the desk using Command Strips from Wal-Mart. The cord management sleeves came in 4 pieces and I used that to organize all the wires. I have the speaker remote attached next to the lifting mechanism under the desk which is nice for quick volume control. The sub-woofer is placed on the desktop due my preference of having the fewest number of cables coming down from the desk. The one cord that hangs down is the power strip that runs to the outlet. The power strip is placed within the c-clamp of one of the monitor arms.

​

Price: I was able to get a lower price in September 2018 at Office Depot using a 20% off coupon that was in general circulation. The final price with taxes and shipping to store was $149.90. But, I would gladly pay the $159.99 listed here.

​

Overall, I love the desk. In fact, I bought another one for my wife. The ability to switch between standing and sitting with the lifting mechanism is well worth the low price I paid. The setup requires minimal effort to lift - I personally use two hands for stability. I do think that an addition of a computer tower on the desktop will make it difficult, but not impossible, to lift. There is mention of wobbling in one of the review videos on YouTube, but it is barely noticeable on a day to day use. I will say that my only complaint is the desktop is not solid wood and I have experienced a bit of surface lift after a cup with condensation was left on the desktop overnight. I recommend using a coaster if you plan to having drinks on your desk.

What a great view! Also, I really love the idea of the frame TV but I feel like that console underneath ruins the illusion because it’s such a “TV” setup. A little cable management molding and you could ditch the console for an even cleaner look.

> organize the wires

Do you mean inside the case, or outside?

For outside, I use a J-channel cable tray - works wonders.

For inside? Too many factors for an easy answer, but yes cable management matters, it affects cooling.

I would have done something with a shelf brace and some command strips. If you placed 2-3 strips on the side on the wall and then you could use zip ties to strap it to the brace. Or just drill in there wall and patch it up, I've put tons of holes with out thinking in my apt knowing I can path them when I move.

If surface run is required and staples are not an option, we frequently use stick on cable conduit. We tend to use NiceDuct brand stuff that works well enough if you clean the area of the wall with the included alcohol pads before affixing the attached two sided tape. This stuff looks like so: http://i.imgur.com/AS0gtrT.png, the small one will easily hold 1 Cat6 loosely or 2-3 Cat5e depending on cable thickness.

We get ours from a supplier but here are some similar ones I found with a quick Amazon search;

For future builds, something like this would probably be a more elegant and less labor intensive way of routing your cables up your wall.

u/Dani31_5p00n · 2 pointsr/malelivingspace

these cable ties could be put to good use. You can use them to wrap the HDMI cords to the back of the poles that hold the monitors. As for the cords bellow the desk, you can wrap them all together with a tie or get something like this to run along the wall.

u/chancethebanker · 9 pointsr/battlestations

I have a similar standing desk and got something like this and a standard cable management tray and mounted both underneath my desk at the back. You can use any normal powerstrip but I wanted the wider one because of some larger power blocks and and because I wanted to more evenly distribute the weight. That way I really only have 1 cord that comes off my desk similar to the one you see here on the right.

​

Edit: I am actually really interested in how you wired the lights. It looks like you punched through the carpet. Did you do that when installing or am I missing something? Did you do the same for ethernet?

The wall conduit way is the best looking for sure (and really isn't very difficult), but if you're renting and cutting a hole in the drywall isn't an option, just running the chords through one of those plastic wire concealment tracks will tidy things up a lot.

Something like this (although you could probably use a smaller cheaper kit since you would t need much):

If it is solid cinderblock or brick, then no, not really. Even if it was a stick-framed wall, it would be FAR easier to buy some wire hider track. I'm not sure what the proper name is, but it looks like half of a small pvc pipe that you can stick to the wall and run cables through.
