Quirky is at again and this time they’ve presented us with the Cable Collar.  The design is very, very simple.  It’s a piece of plastic that adheres to your outlet and keeps up to 24-inches of cord neatly wrapped up.

They toyed with a handful of designs which involved replacing the outlet cover as well as a design that required that you unscrew the cover to slip it over the back.  Ultimately, they settled on a design that is much more simple and practical.  The Cable Collar sticks to the outlet when you insert the first plug.  So if you unplug all of your plugs it will fall of the wall.  A slight annoyance that lends itself to super easy installation – we’ll take it.

The Cable Collar is currently on presale for $6.99.  If you’re interested there is a short video after the ‘leap’ detailing the design process.
