I have these on all my electronic cords, portable and non-portable. Makes it so much easier when I have to move or unplug items.

Moving made easier!
Before I moved, I used Kableflags to label the many cords behind my computer/phone/U-verse setup and (complicated) TV/DVD/DVR/RF converter setup. I wondered if taking the time to label everything when I was busy packing would be worth it, but it definitely was. I ended up using 40 Kableflags total, labeling both ends of most cords with things like "wall," "power strip," and "CPU bottom" to try to make it as clear to myself as possible where everything went.
Setting everything up in my new home was a breeze. When the AT&T rep came to activate my U-verse, he was amazed and said I practically could have activated it myself because everything was already properly connected.
The only cons are minor. My thumbs and fingers got a little sore after a while pulling the ends of the Kableflags through the holes to attach them to the cords, and there's not much room on the flags to write, so you have to get creative about labeling.

I really think the idea of these kind of labels is good. However, the writing fades on them no matter what kind of pen or marker I use. They also seem to fade within three to four months.
I don't understand why they fade over time, even though I don't touch the Kabelflags once they are on the wires. Strange.

No more bumping heads
No more bumping heads, crawling under the computer tugging at cords trying to find out which one is for the printer. Why didn't I think of this?
