Sombrero

Sombrero is a patented cable manager that can be used in an office or a residential setting. Designed to be mounted to the underside of any work surface, this sombrero-shaped spool reins in unruly or excess cable by winding it around its core and firmly anchoring the exiting cable into any of the three V-shaped notches. This unique design feature prevents the cables from accidentally dislodging or unwinding. Sombrero is molded in semi-flexible rubber and accommodates most cord diameters. Sombrero is easily installed using only a screwdriver and can also be mounted vertically onto a wall or the back of an A/V cabinet.
