Nederlander David Rudolf Bakker adds this particularly ingenious improvisation to the already-impressive repertoire of off-label uses for binder clips. [via Boing Boing]

    Huh, I’ve had a similar setup at my office too, but never thought of showing it to others, just seemed like a quick fix.
    I keep the clip on a wire file system on my desk, then run the ethernet cable through the silver part, to prevent the cable from falling back behind the desk.

    But…
    Tim, I was also admiring your desk… is that an IKEA desk?

      @cyenobite2 – Yes, I think it is. It actually came with my office space though, so I’m not certain. It’s “L” shaped.

    We were so bothered by this occurence that we acually made a wire keeper/redirect. Sourced it all locally and gave them to clients for Christmas.

    Here’s the link.
