Cable Zip Tidy Black

• Tidies up unsightly cables in seconds• Easy to remove and re-use• Can be trimmed to the required length• Will hold up to 6 cables

This is the easiest to use cable management product ever! Simply gather the cables together and attach the special zip clip tool. Feed the cable zip on to the zip clip and slide the clip along the length of the wires. The cable zip is easy to remove and can be re-used. It is supplied in lengths of 1.5m and includes the special zip clip tool.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Works like a charm I'm not sure what problems the previous reviewer had with this product but I have used these before and I will be purchasing this again. As long as you are aware that they're designed to handle no more than about 5-6 average thickness cables you won't have a problem. With the tool provided you clamp it around the cables to be inserted and the push it through the entire cable zip, The only reason I didn't give it 5 out of 5 is I'd have liked the product to have been a little bigger in diameter so it could have fitted an extra cable.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works fine for professional and domestic use I use a lot of Zip Tidy professionally to tame patch cables in off-air recording racks, venue sound systems and specialised computer racks. It's easy to banish the cable 'spaghetti' from complicated multi-cord set-ups, and group like cables together. Separate power leads from, signal cords, data from analogue, inputs from outputs. The Zip is also much faster for quickly changing cables in a temporary set up than either spiral tidy or nylon 'snakeskin'. Not really sure what problems the first reviewer had but I'm happy with what the Zip does both at work and at home. I too wish Maplin had wider diameters and lengths of Zip Tidy. I know it exists because I get it from an industry pro audio supplier in 20m lengths, in diameters up to 25mm (when closed), but alas this is getting harder to come by. There's a gap in the market Maplin!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Works well I used this to tidy up 40 years worth of repaired and modified wiring in my camper van's engine bay. It did the job well, particularly liked the way varied cables could be collected into the zip tool and fed in easily to make one neat bundle. Will probably use again. Only downside is the price

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Easy peasy (when you know how) I must admit, I struggled at first to understand the instructions. First, you close the zip clip tool over the cables. The key bit that's missing is that you then feed the product over the oval opening to open up the zip. Then just continue to push the cable tidy over the tool and slide along the cables until finished. Hope that helps some people!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Exasperating - yet simple to use in the end! I spent at least 15 minutes trying to follow the instructions - without success. On the point of returning it to Maplin when I "discovered" that after you attach the zip tool around the various wires, all you need to do is use the long oval part to open up the cable and push that forward . Then slide the zip tool along the rest of the wires. So simple, but blame the instructions! (Perhaps it was me)

Rated 1 out of 5 by from This is unusable. The instructions are vague and the illustration is a meaningless blob. I assumed this would be like the spiral cable tidy I've used in the past, but it's not, and I've spent a frustrating half hour getting 1.5m of it onto 2 cables. The rest is going back to the shop!

Can this product be used for computer cables, knowing fully well that they (computer cables) are more robust and thicker, with much bigger plug ends.

Can the cables be "unzipped" easily, or does the product have to be wrecked to get a cable out again?

This is easy to get out should you need to.
