I thought Velcro — or more generically, hook-and-loop fasteners — only came in adhesive-backed styles, but then I ran into these Velcro rolls at work, where we use ’em for cable management. The hooks are on one side of the roll and the loops are on the other. I may be the last Toolmonger to come across these little round gems, but I thought I’d pass ’em along just in case.
We strap cables together with this stuff, or attach them to hard points so they look neat and stay in place. The rolls would also work great for organizing sporting goods, toys and games, power cables, or just anything you need to keep together.
You just cut off what you need and wrap it up — if you cut it too short, just add another piece. The best part is they’re reusable, unlike zip ties.
I’ve found these rolls in widths from 1/4″ to 1″ and in all colors, made by major and minor manufacturers. The smaller sizes start at about $19 for 25 yards.
