The Cord Catch from OXO is one of those extremely simple little gadgets that you never knew you needed until you had the opportunity to use one.
What is it? It’s a small half dome shaped holder that is made of heavy die cast zinc. It has a non-slip base that sits on a flat surface and holds unplugged cords so they won’t fall off the edge of a table.
It’s an attractive holder, with smooth edges and for such a small object, it feels pretty heavy at 5 ounces.
The rubber base keeps it from sliding around without having to mess with sticky adhesives.
There’s a slot in the top that allows you to easily slip in the end of a USB cable, power cord, etc. The slot narrows so that cord won’t slide completely out of the holder.
It even keeps a grip on smaller plugged cables like the microUSB Kindle 2 charger cable.
There really isn’t much more you can say about the OXO Good Grips Cord Catch. It is a very simple product that performs the simple task of keeping unplugged cables from falling off the edge of a table, desk, night stand, counter, etc. It’s been handy for me because my cat always likes to play with cords on the floor. Now I can keep those cords up and out his sight. It gets a thumbs up from me.
