You'll love how quick and easy it is to organize wires and cables with our Cable Zipper. Simply "lock" cables into the Zip Clip then "zip" them into the Cable Zipper with almost no effort! It's the perfect system to contain cords at your desk or entertainment center. Pairs of labels (one for each end of the wire) make disconnecting and reconnecting components quick and foolproof. The kit includes an 8' Zipper Cable, Zip Clip, two self-adhesive wall-mounts (to adhere the Cable to the wall or under a desk, if desired) and 12 pairs of labels.

Cable Zipper is rated 4.2 out of 5 by 58.
Rated 3 out of 5 by from Best for computer wires/cables I've had this cable zipper for over a year or two and finally decided to zip up the octopus mess by my bedside. The reviews, that tell you the written instructions are bad, are spot on. There's no way to make heads or tails of them, unless you manage to understand them, after you've zipped up your cables...but what's the point? The video on this site is next to useless too, as it goes too fast, not showing detail and oversimplifying the process and the overall result. If all of the cables begin and end in the same places or are close to each other, you may get a nice unified look. This is best for that situation. I decided to only put three cords through the zipper, as one of the cords I didn't put in the zipper, had a transformer in the middle of it---so, it would not be useful in that situation. Besides, that cord is for a CPAP machine, which I take on the road, so I'd be removing the cord from the zipper anyway and it'd be a pain... IMPORTANT: Go to You Tube and search for Cable Zipper. You'll find the same useless video as the one here, but there is another video from a different vendor, which much better shows how to zip the cords into the zipper. It still took me a few tries before I got it to work, but the video points out how to use the clip to zip up the cords. The pointy end of the plastic clip (looks like a nose) goes into one end of the zipper. Along the zipper, you will see the opening along its entire length, where it overlaps itself, so the cords stay in. After two or three tries, I was able to wrap the cords into the zipper. As the video states, GO SLOW. Even doing that wasn't enough at first, until I put the "nose" part of the clip into my palm and slowly pulled the zipper down with my other hand. You need to keep a firm grip on the nose and zipper, so it doesn't pull out of the zipper, as you're sliding the nose down through it. This is NOT a perfect solution at all, but it will keep the cords from tangling and I can lift up the zipper, moving three cords together, to access the area for vacuuming or whatever. Velcro straps, zip ties or other types of bendable wire or plastic would so the same thing and be less expensive. But, this has a uniform look and if you need to move one or all the cords from the zipper, you can slowly do so, without having to cut zip ties or undo several Velcro straps or other types of ties. This is why I'm giving this 3 stars. some situations, like I mentioned above, this could be a 5 star just depends on how you use this.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Worthless Cable zipper is too narrow to hold more than 2-3 large cables. Also , too small to simply slide a plug through. The plastic is very stiff and it is difficult to manipulate the coil for opening.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great For Protecting Cords From Pets! Although the Cable Zipper is really meant for grouping cables into one neat package, I have found that it works really well for protecting my electrical cords from damage inflicted by my cat, who loves to chew on cords of all sorts. My previous solution was to wrap the cords in tin foil but the Cable Zipper looks much nicer!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from these are great I had an old cable organization system, but when I redid my entertainment center, I needed something new. I thought the zipper tool was really cool; much easier on your hands than stuffing the cables into the tube (old system). It was a little tricky to figure out how to get individual cables to pop out the sides, it was worth it. I would use this system in other locations.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A WIN WIN PRODUCT! I would recommend this product to my family and friends! It is a great way to hide & keep those ugly cords together and out of the way! I think everyone would love them...everyone wants to be organized and know which cords are for what! That's what this products does...and it won't wear out...just a little dust may accumulate over time to clean off every once in awhile on your cords/cable zipper! It is also easy to use for those that might even be challenged with wiring, etc. If I can put it on properly, anyone can! Go far it and see that you'll love it!!!

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Great idea but this doesn't work at all I wanted a cord cover to keep my kittens from chewing on various cords. I also figured the cords would look neater covered and managed as one element rather than multiple. However this item actually isn't usable. I tried to follow the instructions to get the cords into the cover and then called my husband who also gave it a try before realizing that it wasn't going to work. We returned it and bought something that does the same thing at another store.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent Product I hate the sight of exposed wires, so I was looking for a product which would hide them and look nice too. Used it on TV, speaker, and computer wires. I got the white, ran it along my white baseboards and it's almost invisible. Much better looking than wires! It is very easy to use once you master the tool which is included.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Bad design, even worse instructions. I understand the concept and what its meant to do. But the directions in the packaging are useless. Youtube videos for directions as recommended by another reviewer are the way to go. I fiddled with this for a bit, only to realise the clip provided in the packaging is way too large and doesn't allow the tubing to over it as shown in the videos. Will be taking this product back to the store for a demo or will store credit.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome! I'm so happy I purchased this. The area behind my TV looks SO much cleaner. The product was easy to trim to the proper lengths. I now want to Cable Zip everything I own. The only small drawback is that I had a hard time figuring out how to use it from the instructions - but I looked up a video online to help, and it went smoothly from there.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Clever solution to cable chaos The zip tool worked exactly as promised (look at the picture carefully and follow it exactly). I only needed half my tubing so cut it in half. The result is a very neat looking tube instead of a mass of tangled wires. And I have another piece of tubing to use elsewhere.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from neat under my desk Super easy way to conquer that tangle of wires under my desk -- phones, monitors, computers, etc. All pulled together and protected. I've used other products that did the job but were difficult to install or undo. This magical zipper takes care of that. It is so fun I didn't think twice about re-doing it when I added another cord.

Can you cut this cable to size?

Can this cable zipper be cut to the length needed? I have a short space on my desk where I want to cover the cables. Only need about 3 feet.

Is this cable zipper cat proof

We recently adopted a sweet cat that has cord chewing issues. She chewed right through my phone charger while it was plugged in! I just bought a new Apple iMac desktop computer and I'd like to protect my cords. Would this be cat proof or a good way to discourage chewing on the power cords?
Asked by: Static
I have the same problem with one of my cats chewing on my Dad's oxygen cords. I saw this & thought I'd try it. It works perfectly! I'd definitely recommend getting this.

How does this work when cables are needed to go in a different direction?

In theory this looks like a good idea. But, how is this used when the cables need to take on different directions, so they can end up plugging into their respective machines?
Asked by: RC62
The cable zipper is mainly used to gather multiple cables so they are not moving freely, it does not allow for the different cables to take on different directions.

Can you buy additional zipper cable if you need more than the 8 ft, or do you have to buy multiple sets?

Asked by: Jackie3
We don't offer additional zipper cables, so you'd need to purchase an additional set for a cable longer than 8 ft.

Are additional self-adhesive all-mounts available if more or needed without buying an additional kit?

Asked by: Phid
Two self-adhesive wall mounts are included with each Cable Zipper® kit. They are not sold separately. However, you may like the adhesive 3M Cord organizers listed under product recommendations.
