Turn it around!
Turn it around backwards for the 8-pin Apple cords! I've had mine for years and was frustrated with it not holding the newer cords. Then I turned it around and problem fixed...for the most part! Can still slip a little but it sure is better!

WARNING - doesn't work for new iphone cords
I was thrilled with this sleek, hefty gadget when I bought it to keep a client's iPad cord from falling to the floor. Purchased 4 more for another client and was really disappointed that despite the description on the box "works with most cords", iphone 5 cords slipped right through the slot. I hope OXO is revising the design even as we speak. I love that it doesn't stick permanently to fine furniture like other cord catchers but is heavy enough to do the job.

Clean design that does exactly what it sets out to do. No bells or whistles. It's a little weighted half-sphere with a cut-out into which you set your cords (mine is a home for my iPhone cord) when not in use. There awaits whatever you place in it- plain and simple! Your cord will no longer slip behind your night stand or side table. Gone are the days of late night crawling and cursing. You will never again need to search for a weight to secure your cords when not charging! Buy this handy little gadget, and relax.

Small footprint and great finish. Just as an FYI they will need a different version for the Lightning bolt line of Apple cords, but for USB and 30 pin...can't be beat.
