Excellent cable hanger!

Post by sduck » Tue Jun 25, 2019 12:04 pm

Just in case any of you haven't seen this, check it out - https://www.eurodesk-z.com/products/hex ... ble-hanger

Only a limited number available currently, but if there's enough demand, he'll make more most likely.

I have one of his euro ones, and have the other one (the one linked abovea) ordered. The euro one works really well! Does what it's supposed to - holds a whole bunch of cables neatly.

It looks to me like this hanger will hold 120 or so 1/4" cables. The recommendation is to use a microphone stand with it. I would be nervous about using a mic stand with this many cables.

I had attached 2 Pomona cable hangers back-to-back on a 2x4 and then drilled a hole to slide it on top of a mic stand. The Pomona cable hangers hold about 30 cables each. With the 2 Pomona's loaded with cables, the mic stand was wobbly and placed very heavy torque where the mic stand attached to the base. I used a 40 lb. barbell weight on the base to keep it from tipping over. I have 6 foot cables; so I had the mic stand at maximum height. I was very afraid of the stand just snapping off the base.

I built the cable tree pictured below (based on a design from the late Larry Hendry) using 5 Pomona cable hangers, an old lighting stand, and 2 pieces of wood cut into triangles.

I have over 150 (mostly Dotcom cables) cables on this cable tree. They represent a lot of weight. This tree is as solid as a rock

I understand your trepidation! I will let folks know how it works out for me.

Yea, yea, I know, just thought I'd throw out a link to help a fellow wiggler out. Yes of course there are lots of other possible options. This is just the latest one. There have been numerous patch cord management threads in the past, if you don't like this solution find one of those.

I like these cut-out style hangers. I've got both Dotcom models mounted on a mash-up stand. A small cymbal arm mounted off the main stand allows me to mount the smaller cable holder and offers me a place to hang my longer cables...
