Alrighty community. I’ve been racking my brain trying to come up with a nice cable management system for the breadboard cables that also LOOKS GOOD. So I joined a workspace with a laser cutter and designed this prototype. It can screw directly into the side of a rack either via the foot/case connector screws, or the M3 screw in the middle. They could also be Velcroed to the top or screwed into your wall or desk. I plan on cutting them in acrylic matching the red on the side of the racks, but may also do some stained wood as well. Cables stay organized, nice and snug, and out of the way but within reach. Would there be enough interest for me to crank out a big batch of these? I’m still working out price, but it will be reasonable (shipping is the real issue as we all know)
Sweet! This is something we've surely been missing! Where are you located regarding shipping?
I am located in New Orleans, Louisiana... USA... I know shipping is going to be the big issue here.
I’ve gotten some great feedback from Robert on this idea, and I’ll be adding another great feature design. If all goes well I could possibly start an ETSY page and start shipping them by the end of next week...
So I got a lot of great feedback from Robert on the cable management prototype, now I'm going to open the design up to the community and see if there are any other ideas people have.
The cable holder "wings" now have tabs on them for a 1 inch velcro strap that can run the length of your case that will hold all of the patches in place to prevent snags or accidental unplugs. I also plan to include a couple of the tabs by themselves for traveling or if you only want one wing and one tab.
Each kit would essentially cover one row of a rack. with the velcro strap being 24 inches long for longer racks.
additional tabs will be available for additional rows.
The mount utilizes both the M5 and M3 screw holes on the side, and can be mounted on the top or bottom of a rack. I also rounded the back edge for those of you that use your racks flat on a table instead of a stand. that way they can still be screwed in and angled to your preference.
The design will need to be finalized by Tuesday of this week. So if you have ideas to add... get with it!
Very excited to have something to add to this great community!
