Should I use duct tape to hide my cables?

Avoid Duct Tape as Cable Covers

We've all heard that duct tape is the universal solution for many household projects. But experts in the wire management industry warn you to bypass the duct tape when considering how to organize and hide your cables and wires. While duct tape has a wonderful ability to conform, stretch and adhere to many surfaces, it's not ideal for cable organization. And here's why, according to cableorganizer.com:

  • It's ugly and inefficient
  • It can damage flooring
  • It can be dangerous when it comes unstuck
Instead, spend the money to get a proper cable cover, a product intended to protect and organize your cables.
