Where to buy Tubes/Cord Concealers to hide your computer wires and organize them?

Hi i was looking for something to organize all the wires behind my PC to keep it tidy and not as messy. Im looking for Cord concealers/wrappers/organizers whatever you call them to conceal them from being shown and keep them in a nice pile.

This is what is similar to what im talking about:

Im also interested in getting velcro ties, because obviously there are going to be some wires that cannot all by in under one tube. These i know where to buy, and i can find the "Belkin cord ties" at any Staples Business depot for 8 bux =/. A pic of these are here:

Any suggestions where to buy the organize as described on the first pic? I have already tried Staples business depot, Canadian tire and Futureshop. If it is bendable like a rubber tube or cloth is even better than a big plastic one. Many thanks and your comments are appreciated :)

As i recall ive seen these at dollarama! i think it was the one on orfus road. . . they look like they were made 10 years ago from the box and amount of dust :lol:
it was like a large black tube, that you stick the wires in and peal off for extra slack . . . i didnt buy one, but you should call :D

Just buy Plastic Zip ties and make them look nice and hide them ontop of cd-roms and behind areas in your case.

Thats the best way because it wont effect your airflow at all just make it better. If you start getting these tubes and stuff it will just be in the way and still have some impact on the airflow.

He's talking about the cables outside the case. Power, Monitor, USB, etc. Not the ones inside it.

For inside it best thing is to get a case that lets you route cables behind the motherboard. My fiancee's new P180 I have all the cables running in behind the motherboard, fastened to the plastic ties there. It's nice and completely clean.

Most Home stores carry various conduit type things to conceal wiring, cables etc. They aren't cheap though
Check Home depot, Rona, Can Tire.... the electical section.
Or be creative see what type have in plumbing or the garden center - tubing or pipe.

Thanks, ill look into home depot, havent checked there yet. Seems to be a better deal than the 8 bux for 10 for Belkin ones.

You can get split loom tubing like that at just about any hardware store, auto parts store, or at Ikea.


Crappy tire has it in the automotive section (with all the automotive wiring products)

Its dirt cheap.
Yep, and cheaper if you go to Princess Auto. They regularly have this stuff on sale for $5, I believe, and long lengths too.
