Binder clips as cable catchers

We've long been fans of using binder clips as cable managers, but sometimes, a person's raw enthusiasm for a technique makes it worth another look. Dutch freelancer David Rudolf Bakker photographs the whole process of desk-edge cable catching in beautiful detail.

If we're being completely honest, this editor never really caught on that the true beauty of binder clip cord management was that the clips themselves could fasten to a desk. Bakker's photos show exactly how such a setup should look on a reasonably thin desk edge, and illustrates how the nook of the clip handle holds onto all kinds of cables—USB, ethernet, Mac power port—just so.
