Tripping on Cables and Extension Cords
Tripping over cables and extension cords is one of the most prevalent causes of accidents and injuries in the home. Figuring out how to organize cables becomes increasingly important when realizing just how risky it is to leave them unprotected. Whether lying across the desk, unmanaged behind the television, or randomly draped along a wall or corner, cables can present serious danger.
