    hi there, I have several large cables laying around the edges of my wall that are of various colours. Does anyone know of some type of white cable wrap that would enable me to keep all my cables together under the guise of one large white cable?

    thanks

    well the one online wasn't really suitable for my needs but thanks anyway.

    What I'm really after I guess is some type of white cable wrap which i would wrap around all my cables to make one big white cable.

    anyone?

    yes, that looks more like it and light grey will do fine.

    thanks for that.

    When it comes to putting it on I found that the easiest way was to use the fact that it can compress and stretch along its length, sort of push the free end of the cable in then pull the "looseness" down along the length of the cable. Not an easy thing to describe but it'll make sense when you try it.

    yep, I'm guessing it wont be the eaiset to pit on though I'll probably make several 5-7 meters lots so that will make things much eaiser.

    Its actually suprisingly easy to put on, a lot easier in fact than it is to explain how to do it. Give it a go with it in one piece first, you might be fine without any joins. To give you an idea it only took a minute (maybe 2, tops) to cover over 3m of speaker cable I had made.

    One other thing to remember is that it frays like nobody's business from the cut ends, just make sure you seal them with a bit of insulating tape or heatshrink.
