    Desk Cable Management: Good Ikea Product

    Had a search couldn't find this listed: /IKEA Signum Cable Trunking

    Bought two, fixed under desk - miles better.

    edit: piccies (yes could make it even tidier but not bad for a first run).

    Looks good to me too. I did a lot of research into these last year and this looks the best I've seen.

    Glad there's other people who get just as annoyed by all the wires!

    Even without too much time, if you just "shove them" in the tray it looks miles better, couple of points:-

    1. you can't really get the multi-sockets in the tray, easier to trail all your power cables out one side, and cable wrap them.

    2. you can however sit little power blocks in the tray - think laptop power brick size.

    3. those thin long speaker wires you can thread in and then just wind round one of the grips (the design is like a smaller wire tray inside a bigger one).

    Certainly one of the best/cheapest/aftermarket fittings I've found, even know when I look under I can't believe how clean it looks - and no more catching wires on me hooves and pulling things out.

    This is something I've never seen before - under desk plug board
