Securing HDMI cables


Novice Member
Hi All

At my workplace we have an issue with HDMI cables growing legs and disappearing and it is really starting to frustrate the team, if anyone has a solution to this issue we would very much appreciate it. Taking the cables out of the rooms and having users sign them out would only cause aggravation to the team and end users, an obvious but costly solution would be to use a wireless system but if there is anything we could do to secure the cables to the tables it would be better for us. Any ideas would be appreciated.

Cable tie them to the table somehow if there is a hole nearby you could attach one to?

HDMI cables are like catnip to users, for some reason. They can sniff them out two meeting rooms away and they can never get enough of them.
I've found cable ties generally do the trick, although having a cache of spare cables locked away is the only solution to ensure equipment is never air gapped at a critical moment.
