After some experimenting, I ended up with a solution that does the trick in hiding those ugly cords while still keeping them accessible.
This is the view of the bottom of the table my computers sit on. I know it is a little hard to see, but I drilled 4 small holes and then screwed in 4 cup hooks. I chose to use these for a couple of reasons.
- The part that screws in is only about 1/2 inch long, so I did not accidently go all the way through to the top.
- I can slide my basket right onto the hooks and easily take it down again if I need to get to the surge protector or the cords.
Here is another view from the floor looking up. The basket hangs nicely on the cup hooks. I wanted a metal basket with lots of air flow because those boxes on the cords tend to get a bit warm. I purchased this letter holder from Staples for $4.99
Next I sat my basket on the floor and arranged my surge protector and all the cords. I used twisty ties and rubber bands to help tame the cords. I ended up turning the surge protector on it’s side so everything would fit.
Here is a view of it mounted up under the table.
Much better don’t you think??Pin It Now!
