Tame tangled cords with office supplies

Loose cords can be a hassle, but they don't have to be. Untangle your cords with common office supplies.

Wrapping power tool cords around the tool for storage has often been a source of aggravation for me. More often than not, the cord comes loose while I'm putting the tool away or "cord gremlins" tangle it together with other cords during storage. To confidently tame those cords, use a binder clip to clamp the cord to itself for storage. When the tool is in use, keep the clip handy by clamping it to the cord.
