I purchased an UpDesk PowerUp Series I (original) last year and love it. I got the standard maple-colored desk top and am very happy with the density of the wood, quality laminate and curved front edge. The one thing I was not very satisfied with was the mounting option given for the clasps keeping the wiring under it from hanging. I was given a good amount of these self-adhesive twist plastic cable ties:
Simple yet effective solution, right? Yes but only if the adhesive pad would stick longer than a couple of days to the underside of the desk. The adhesive was hit or miss on the surface. I searched around for solutions that were permanent but not so much that if I wanted to move wires or add additional ones it would require unscrewing something. I ended up finding these gems at Home Depot:
They have an adhesive backing to them and an optional screw hole for which I bought 1/2″ #8 wood screws. Works like a charm. You then take any old zip tie and feed it through and tie your cords up.
So now I have the wires under the table all neatly attached. I no longer have to worry about finding plastic ties fallen off the table and sticking to my hardwood floor.
