Keep those cords tidy!
Over the years many methods have been tried to contain messy
cords. Most have failed.
Now a new Australian product – Clipaway – claims to provide an
easy and convenient solution to the problem. Clipaway clips come in a variety of
sizes to suit all types of cord (even rope) up to 12mm dia-meter.
They're available from Woolworths/Big W, BBC/Hardwarehouse and
other leading retailers.
