I have a few cables I need to run from one side of my desk to the other. I'd like them to be at the back, under the lip of the desk. I need a way to keep the cables hanging there tidy.

 

The best I can find is this cable clamp. I'd just screw one side in but not the other. It's not perfect but gives you the idea.

 

There's also this cable tray, but it's probably a bit big. It's only a couple of small cables, under a dark brown desk.

 

Any ideas for something I can buy locally?

The signum works well (have two running width of desk) but I have more than a few cables to hide.

Can purchase locally via https://www.urbansales.co.nz/IKEA-SIGNUM-Cable-Trunking-Horizontal-SILVER

Spice rack may work. How did you attach it to the underside of a desk?

 

If I can get the Signum locally that might be the answer :)

There are 2 holes at each end, buy a couple of screws and screw it to underside of desk.

 

I got the bigger one about $6  which can also hold a 6 - way power adapter.

That sounds like exactly what I need. Any product suggestions or links?

Sometimes I just sit and think. Other times I just sit.

I have stapled some of those velcro style cable bundling ties under my desk and use those to hold things up out of the way. Only the small brick for my LG monitor in one of them and cables in the others. Seems fine.

Made up ties from Warehouse Stationery:

Or just go in to Mitre 10 and buy a roll of double-sided velcro (hook on one side, loop on the other).  The stuff I have is about 20mm wide x about a 5m roll.  Very useful stuff.

Bull dog clips.
I use several quite big ones which can attach to edge of desk and have a couple of cm spare at the back of the bite where I run cables through.

I should think a couple of these should do the trick. Easy to add or remove cables too.

How many cables do you have? How about these - and there are other similar clips available at Bunnings:

One of those will be perfect - thanks! I searched but couldn't find the right term to find these.
