I’ve been a fan of the concept of Quirky for a while now, but this is the first time one of its products enticed me enough to spend a few bucks. The invention in question is Cordies — a weighted slab of rubber with five chunky nipples that secures your cables to your desk without relying on Velcro or glue.

This is for gadget geeks, like me, that have chargers for multiple devices behind their desks and are frustrated every time a cable slides back through the gap in the desk or recoils into the wire pass-through portal.

Designed and invented by Stephen Stewart, Cordies are simple, effective and solid as a rubber rock. For around $10, this is a no-brainer for anyone that’s ever tweaked his neck crawling under a desk. The best part: they are available in lime green.
