A simple way to contain computer cables. In this case, cables I need to read SD cards and sync/charge an Ipod. This cable cleat allows you to add or remove cables by simply sliding the dovetail piece past the slot. There are 2 hidden number 6 brass screws in the bottom of the dovetail slot. Made from scrap pieces. I have enough left over to make 2 more. The headphone hook in the background is from Ikea.

Now that’s using your head! I’ll have to include this idea in my planned computer cabinet project. Thanks
