Wrap up lengthy cables with VELCRO® Brand ONE-WRAP® Tape before plugging them in.

Shortening long cables is one of the most effective ways to keep them tidy and VELCRO® Brand ONE-WRAP® Tape is adjustable and reusable. This is helpful for moves, adds and changes whenever technology needs to be upgraded.

ONE-WRAP® Tape is a preferable bundling solution for safety loops, in the event cables need to be extended for future changes. The flexible fasteners are easy to unfasten and reduce stress on the cable and terminations if the pathway is pulled on.

By keeping cables tidy, the work environment will be more productive and professional-looking.

Identify Cables with Multiple Colors

Among all the cables connecting control panels, computers, projectors and more, you don’t want to confuse yourself and your customers on which pathways are which. With 13 different colors, VELCRO® Brand ONE-WRAP® Tape is an easy solution to identify specific pathways with color-coordination. You can use green for phones, orange for data, red for electrical or create your own coding system.

If labeling your cables is preferred, custom labels can be requested on VELCRO® Brand ONE-WRAP® Tape.
