Keep your cables under wraps with TwelveSouth SurfaceSnap

TwelveSouth has an attractive solution for the problem of messy cables stretching across nearly everyone’s desk. SurfaceSnap offers leather bands with button snaps. Attach one or more of these to a desk or table to secure charging and computer cables.

The product comes in either black or dove grey to match your decor. Each cable organizer is slim enough to not be unsightly. “You can place it pretty much anywhere. On top of your desk, the edge of nightstand, the wall next to your desk, the back of monitor,” notes TwelveSouth.

It can be the answer to your iPhone charging cable irritatingly sliding off your desk or nightstand whenever you disconnect the handset. The same can be true of your iPad.

SurfaceSnap could get your desk in order

SurfaceSnap attaches with semi-permanent adhesive. Each can be removed or repositioned without leaving sticky residue behind.

A pack includes two single and one double-winged cable organizers. The smaller version is 2.6 inches by 1 in., while the larger is 4.7 in. wide. Pop open the metal snap to add or remove wires.

The SurfaceSnap pack is $29.99 from the Cult of Mac Store. While you’re there, check out some of this accessory-maker’s other products for Apple devices, like AirFly Pro and HiRise wireless charger.

Awesome hold, super useful

First time I’ve used a 3M stick mount and it’s holding really well on the stick side, no sign it’s weakening. On the magnet side the phone never falls out, but it will slide off if you try to put a lightning cable in or pull one out from the phone while it’s mounted. That’s a real nitpick because otherwise it’s an awesome mount.

Great Customer Service

On my original review I mentioned that I ordered a black case but received a white case instead. Well, the Customer Service rep actually read my review and sent me the right color case. To me, this is outstanding customer service. The case is also outstanding in that it fits perfectly and I can hold the remote more securely.

Not Quite What I Ordered

Like several other purchasers, I ordered the black case and received the white version. Outside of the shipping or availability issue, the case is sturdy but soft. It’s just on the edge of being slippery, but it isn’t. It also hasn’t been picking up dust or blanket fuzzies. The remote stays securely in the case and all buttons are functional

Good morning, thank you for your feedback. I have checked your order and see you ordered the Nightglow blue color, therefore will show white, and glow in darkness. If you wish to return and order the black color, please let me know. The item will need to be unused and in the original packaging. Many thanks, Adel.

Exactly what I wanted

Had my Air Tag hidden in my handlebar bag but this simple little holder is a much better solution. Attached on my seat post under the seat facing back, so a bit protected, maybe not an issue but works well there.

It's ok, but not really well designed.

I would have preferred a more sophisticated attachment method than a simple zip tie. And the zip tie is mounted on the opposite side of where it should be. Other than that, it's a simple solution and works as it should.
