Cable Turtles Wind and Protect Your Cables

If you’re anything like us gear heads, your workstation is filled with almost a half a mile worth of cables, in one big pile, waiting to help you reenact scenes from the firefighter show on FX. But for just a few bucks, you can grab some Cable Turtles which is a flexible rubber shell around a center spindle, all designed to protect your various ethernet, phone, power, and USB cables from wear and tear – not to mention tangling.

The shell pops up easily for you to wrap your cords around, and pops down so that you can insulate the wiring. The only problem comes from having too many of these, which will make the area under your desk look like the pod scene from the first Matrix movie.
