Years ago we were all promised that we’d be living in a paperless society and that everything would be done digitally. And yet, my desk is still covered in documents, forms, notes and paperwork. The wireless era? We might have pervasive Wi-Fi and Bluetooth everything, but if your desk and home are anything like mine, you’ve still got dozens of wires and cables you have to deal with. My son’s dorm room at college? Same thing: behind his bed and desk is a jungle of cables that would impress even Stanley and Livingstone!
Fortunately, Nite Ize has this genius device that looks modest, but is your best defense against the chaos of cable sprawl: the Gear Tie®. Ranging in length from a few inches to monster ties that can help keep your kayak on the roof of your car in a snowstorm, they’re simple and insanely useful.
To really understand, consider how I’m using a 6-inch Gear Tie to keep my extension cord from sprawling all over the place:
Looks like a twist tie, but they are so much stronger, more flexible and vastly more durable that as soon as you use one, you’ll immediately rush out and buy another dozen. Even the smallest Gear Ties at 3 inches are darn useful. Have a jam-packed wall charger to help keep all your devices charged and ready to go? You don’t need to suffer through cables all over the place, but can keep them tamed and neat with a single cheery neon yellow GearTie:
What’s best about the Gear Tie system is that they last forever. Twist it closed. Twist it open to re-wrap your cables and wires. Twist it closed again. Repeat, repeat, repeat.
You’ll likely find something surprising as you proceed: it’s actually fun to organize all your cables and wires! Think of it as tech stress therapy.
The versatile Gear Tie Cordable™ is the perfect solution for wrangling cables, and comes in 3", 6" 12" & 18". These clever Gear Ties feature a stretch-loop on one side that fits over the end of a cord and lives there, offering a convenient way to wrap, organize, and identify your cords.
It can be hard to tell from photos, but the exterior of the Gear Ties are rubber, so there’s no issue with electrical conductivity either. And lengths! We’ve got lengths that include 3”, 6”, 12”, 18”, 24” and the GearTie Mega at 32” and 64” lengths.
What can you do with really big Gear Ties? How about organizing the hose in your garage?
So don’t shy away from the task, pull your desk out and have a look at the tangle of wires. Peek behind your television and entertainment center. Check out the wires behind your bedside table. And don’t forget the garage and work room too. All of those can be neatly organized with the right size Gear Tie and just a little bit of enthusiasm!
