    What a nightmare!
    Been using spiral wrap, but every time I need to change anything it's a 3 hour job! I need some sort of velcro wrap in short sections that are easy to go on and off and looks fairly ok hanging down the back of my unit...

    Anyone got any good tips?

    I think you can get a flexible conduit with a split down it for access, haven't got time to look for it now but I think we used to get it from Radio Spares, so any of those type suppliers should have it.

    Ikea used to sell packs of velcro wrap which was exactly for this, not sure if they still do though.

    If your rack has a substantial frame, you could use trunking with the self adhesive strips attached. Then it is just a case of taking off the lid.

    might be a bit obvious but why not use ordinary cable ties - they are cheap enough to cut off and throw away when you want to rehash the system

    lisa - i have got 5no of the belkin ones that came with my av pure - you can have then foc if you just pm me your details :D

    as regards the belkin ones shown on the link - what a price for 6 bits of velcro :mad:

    my local sewing shop sells velcro by the m and even with my limited ability on a sewing machine these are a doddle to make :D

    i jest not i do own and use a sewing machine - normally for making fishing bits and pieces :thumbsup: mind you i could start making these as a sideline!!

    Right, er, thanks for that....!
    The cable ties look good, I would prefer black and a bit wider if poss so that they completely cover the cables...samjet if you are serious in your offer I would be delighted if you could make me some, would be happy to transfer some cash in to your account to cover your costs and see what appears in the post! ... am sending you a pm.

    If you go the a big B&Q They do a large roll of 3cm wide self gripping Velcro for about £5. Just cut what you need. You can also put a screw through the velcro (before wrapping the cables!) to secure it to a surface.
