We’ve all had issues with having to run cables across the floor at one time or another. I know I have resorted to taping cables to the floor or carpet with duct tape but not only did that work for just a short period of time, it also left an awful mess on the floor and the cable! This handy new product from Australian company TripSafe eliminates the potential danger involved with tripping over loose cables by containing them under a safe and secure cover. The product I tested from their range was the Tripsafe™ Cable Cover for Carpet (11cm x1.8m) in yellow and I found it did a great job of securing a cable I had running across my lounge room floor in a high traffic area. This product would be perfect not only for use in the home but also in a school or work environment or event setting where cables are required to be run for computers, microphones, etc. It is machine-washable and can be reused over and over again.
At the time of writing this review, the TripSafe carpet cable cover only came in yellow and grey. I would love to see some neutral colours brought into the mix that better matched the colour of the carpet, for the cables that don’t requiring moving very often. TripSafe are dedicated to making your home or work environment safer by eliminating tripping hazards. They offer a range of other products including covers for hard floors and cable wraps. The TripSafe Cable Cover for Carpet retails at AU$36.25 and carries a 12 month warranty, as with all their products, if you are unhappy with the product for any reason. If you are looking for a simple solution to securing loose cables, this is a quality product made for the job.
