    Cable Tidy

    We have several laptops that plug into whiteboards. As you can imagine there is a rats nest of cables under/near the desk they live on. Does anyone know where to get some simple flexible tube style cable tidys?

    I think PoundStretcher sell them but it would be a pain to buy them for school.

    I use copious amounts of cable ties. Check out http://www.screwfix.com/app/sfd/cat/...97371&id=52079 for a cable tie gun (much less wastage than using millions of individual ties.

    Ikea used to do some nice ones [I got some a year ago] - y'know - spilt flexible plastic pipe about 2m long.

    only about 15mm diameter tho' - is that big enough?
