Power cord identification made easy
My husband will be crushed when he finds out that his label maker has been replaced. See, he has this habit of attaching sticky flags onto all of our power cords and wires. I tell him not to bother because my grab-and-wiggle technique (the one where you yank on a cord and follow the movement down to the outlet to make sure you're not unplugging the wrong thing) has seen me through years of rats' nests behind the entertainment center and underneath my computer desk, but he continues to print labels.
Turns out that both our methods have been outdone by the ID Pilot Wire Identification Labels.
Available in office, electronics, and household themes, each package of labels contains an assortment of white vinyl 5/8" stickers bearing images of almost anything that requires electricity. Only $6.
