    I would have suggested Videk, but saw that the 9m ones start at £65+! 8O

    What about buying direct from the manufacturer?

    Depends how wide the strip is inside which is something I should work out really.
    At the very least it will have a VGA and a 3.5mm jack lead at the most will have VGA, 3.5mm lead and scart lead running through it.

    @Geoff

    I will certainly look into it.

    From Viking Direct - http://www.viking-direct.co.uk/
    Vulcascot 9m Wide Channel Cable Protector £57.99
    Vulcascot 9m Standard Channel Cable Protector £39.99
    Available in black and grey 8)
    Also, because the order is over £30 it is free next day delivery which makes a change. You can order online or by phone and it turned out my school already had an account with them. The lady on the phone was very helpful and it took about 3 minutes.

    @ChrisH, did you ever find a better place to get these from and what size did you go for?

    Don't forget you can get diferent colours for different purposes! The black and yellow ones are meant to indicate a trip hazard so are the obvious choice.

    IIRC I bought my last lot from Screwfix (although it may have been Rapid Electronics).

    Just incase anyone's still interested in these, I came across a 10m roll for £31.88 at The Cable Management Store (Product Index > General Cable Management > Cable Protector).
