Ways to Manage Cords in the Car
When it comes to cords, I’m sure you know the feeling of wanting to unplug quickly so that you can get on with what needs to be done. However, there is nothing worse than reaching for an elusive cord laying under the seat only to find it’s not long enough for your car and your home. An option would be a universal cord, but what a hassle to keep track of it.
Every day at work, I see countless people using their laptops in the car on the way home or vice versa. The frustration is so evident as they struggle with cords that are too short! If you own more than one electronic device, it’s especially important to have enough length to your charger cord that you don’t yank it out every time you want to unplug. What makes matters worse is when the cords tangle up and cause even more frustration.
A great way to manage cords in the car is to use Velcro cable ties. Not only do they keep all your cords neat and tidy, but if you have a long cord, you can literally tie it onto the steering wheel. And if you think about it, cords are literally everywhere – hanging from laptops, cell phones, and earbuds. By using Velcro cable ties to bundle your cords together, it ensures that they won’t fall or mess up other things in your car.
Another popular option is cords that plug into your cigarette lighter.
These power adapters for the car work great because you never have to worry about them fraying, and they fit in perfectly with your existing cigarette lighter interior. These cords are long enough so that you can use them in the front seat and still be able to reach both outlets in the backseat without having to deal with a tangled mess of cords.
Although I’ve never tried it, I feel that Velcro cable ties work much better than tape if your goal is to save time in the long run because you can easily use and reuse them. Using either method will help manage your car cords so that they are not only out of the way but also tangle-free.
Cord organization is so important in the car because even if you are using one electronic device, it’s likely you have more than one cord for each item. Use these two easy ways to manage cords in your car today!
Cord management in the car can be a hassle. If you want to save time and avoid frustration, consider using Velcro cable ties or cords that plug into your cigarette lighter for easy organization and accessibility. You’ll thank yourself later when you’re not fighting with tangled wires!
