Rated 5 out of 5 by from Cable Heaven These cable ID's are super easy to use and allow for color coding different devices or, if you have one of those "cable/fiber" control boxes where a modem and router are stored, you can identify the rooms different plugs serve. So organizationally Zen!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Wire Lable System Use these for my HDMI cables for my home theater system. they work great -- you may want to buy two sets so that you can match the colors at both ends. Great addition to make things easy and change HDMI ports when necessary. Best to purchase these on-line with store pickup. Also, be sure to search Container Store coupons so that you can save $

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Sorting the Wire Spaghetti I bought these to help sort and organize the wire spaghetti that currently resides under my TV stand. I have six different devices plugged into my TV at the moment, and all of the wires look like one another. My only wish is that this product had two of each color, for each end of the wire, so that I could diagram what goes where in case I have to unplug anything. I ended up having to buy two packs to do this.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good idea: Clothes for your cables The Container Store's Cable IDs are absolutely the best cable labels. Here's the before and after: Before these, my computer wires looked like Medusa. After Cable IDs, my wires are organized. These sleek looking, well designed helixes are very easy to apply. You can write on them with just about anything. These cable labels save time, prevent confusion and look very cool. Get some.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Easy to use This is such a great idea for keeping cords organized and easy to distinguish from one another. Like the different colors for different peripherals i.e...Apple TV green, DVD blue.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Super Simple, Love these! I've been looking forever for a way to organize my computer cords. These are super, they don't stick out like all the others and catch on each other. They are soft and wrap around the cords and make labeling them a breeze!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Cable ID--a great idea I have so many computer cords that I am always afraid of disconnecting the wrong one. The Cable ID's are a perfect solution. They are different colors and have a place to write on each one. Perfect!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from S-o-o-o Useful!! These slim, flexible ID "bracelets" -- provided in a selection of 8 bright colors (including white) -- which you can easily wind around regular-size power cables, are great when you have several devices (computer or otherwise) plugged into the same power strip and want to label each of the cables by the device it powers. However, if your handwriting is anything like mine, there's a better way to use them. Buy two packages, so you have two ID bracelets of each color. Then use the same-colored bracelet at both the device end and the power-strip end and it's no problem finding the right plug quickly. No reading. No writing. Wonderful!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Neat & Colorful My fiance is a computer nut. I am really thankful for Apple TV, but between that & all the other stuff to keep us entertained it can be a bit overwhelming with the cords. This keeps everything organized while looking good.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Why didn't I think of this! I love, love, love the cable ID's! Whoever thought of making colored cables with tabs for writing the item was BRILLIANT! They are so easy to twist around any cables so I used them in my computer room to mark all the pieces of technology, in the music room to mark all my stereo A/V equipment, and in the living area to mark the TV/DVD/stereo system. Between the brightly colored cables and the label area to mark which item belongs to the cable it is easier than ever to plug/unplug equipment in the back and not have to waste time figuring out which cable belongs to which item. The best part is they are only $7.99!!!!!!!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fabulous idea! When I heard about these cable ID's, I knew I had to try them. I have a longstanding problem with too many cords plugged into a surge protector, but not knowing what they're connected to. This finally solved the problem! No more guessing or disconnecting the wrong thing while trying to find the right one! These are great for anyone like me. Easy to attach, stay on with no problem. Great idea!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from No more guessing! I hated trying to figure out which cable was which when something needed to be unplugged from the power strip. These cables are easy to put on, stay in place and are easy to write on.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Purchased as a stocking stuffer for my husband My husband's cables for his office space were a mess, so I picked up a package of these for his stocking last Christmas.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Brilliant Absolutely brilliant. They don't come off the cable and they're easy to write on w a sharpie. It's kind of sad that adhesive labels from a label maker don't stick, but that's minor

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Replaced all my other attempts Have tried to label cords and cables for many years with various products from masking tape to other label products. This beats everything else hands down. Lays flat so cords and cables can be "fished" without problems and is readily visible. If you are careful with color coding, you do not even have to "read" the label. Would be nice if you could buy in bundles of colors.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent to ID Cords! Excellent and affordable way to ID all of these CORDS! And I think purchasing TWO sets, as a previous reviewer stated, is an awesome idea! They are easy to write on, easy to wrap around the cords and will NOT fall off! Now why didn't I think of this!! :o)

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Already proved its worth I bought these on Monday, installed them on my husband's complex computer system on Tuesday, and today was glad I did when I needed to check some equipment! I bought two sets so I could put matching coils at each end of each cord.

Community Q&A

I use a perm marker to write on these, but after a while the writing is illegible. On the other hand, perm ink makes it hard to reuse. Any suggestions

Asked by: Beemer
The Cable IDs are intended to be used as a color coding system only. You may want to try our Kable Flags as they can be written or printed upon. Please review our Product Recommendations section for more information.

Could these be used as label on wires for earbuds?

Tired of kids borrowing each other’s ear buds (or mine) and then lost or not returned to the original owner. I can’t tell from the pictures of these would be too large for earbuds wires. Thank you
Asked by: JennyI
This product would most likely be too large for earbud cables.
