|"Tippy" Back - Cables Organized|
One problem that sat at the back of my mind when I first started designing Tippy was "What is someone going to do with their cables???" Oh well, I'll just keep thinking about how I can add a pocket or something in the future. Well, little did I realize at the time that the solution was already there, I just didn't see it until today! I took a cable and just wrapped it around behind the posts and that wasn't too bad at all but then it got better. I put all the cables in, and then I had the end caps, hey I'll just screw them on to the cables to store them, and oh, how about I just put those cute little locking pins in the extra size 3 holes that there are no needles for (yet). Well that worked but the cables did look a little hard to figure out which was which and so I pulled them out, wrote the length of each cable on one end cap, screwed it on (before I threaded the cable back in), then threaded the cable back in, the end cap making a nice stopper to hold the cable in place and then easily and neatly tucking in the open end of the cable either behind a post or under a cable. It not only looks very neat, now my cables are easy to identify and easy to remove by pulling on the end cap until it unwinds from the stand and the locking pins are easy to find too.
