These are messy and can make a simple move or change a complicated process. Lacing bars are used to avoid this problem, clean up your system, and give it a professional look.
You can still use lacing bars for organization, you will just need to plan ahead for your particular system and lace appropriately. For a more permanent system we use zip-ties to keep cords in place. For a system that is more fluid, you may consider Velcro instead. Also, if you have cables that are moving around often, just give them enough slack to reach every plug they might need to reach.
Even just lacing the power for the units in the rack can make your life so much easier when you go to connect all your signal cables. Even on cables that are temporarily plugged into a rack, simple lacing can keep them from getting pulled out accidentally.
Lacing Bars are a simple, easy way to keep your system organized and well maintained. We hope you'll want to give them a try too!
