Yea I know. I was too lazy to go downstairs and get them. Live and learn. Laughing

Edit - You know scissors can be a pain in the ass if you have a bunch of cables and the ties are tight. You really need a sharp tip.


I always keep a Swiss Army Knife with built-in scissors and screwdriver handy in my desk drawer. You can even get one with a built-in USB flash drive. Ask Santa for one! Wink

I've bought 2 IKEA cable gutters, as mentioned in my initial post.
The mess under my desk is gone now Smile I'm really pleased with the outcome.
