Make a USB cable desk tidy with LEGO and sugru

LEGO is awesome, but making a USB cable desk tidy with LEGO is even more awesome!

And it's super super easy too.

How cool is this? You can use LEGO to mount everything from cables and earphones to your computer, to your car keys inside the door when you get home.

We know lots of you are excited about doing this, so we've made a full step by step here.

Enjoy!  And for more sugru ♥ LEGO inspiration, have a look at this little film we made :)

Great tip, but none of the links works - any ideas?

Hi Simba, thanks for posting and sorry for the delayed reply. You're right, it is tricky to say as it totally depends on how much wear and tear it's subjected to. For a boot repair I would expect that if the job is done well it should outlast the rest of the unrepaired past of the boot uppers, but don't try to repair soles, as sugru isn't tough enough for walking on. What did you do with the dog tags? If it was something like this I would expect that to last years. Jane.

What's the working life of Sugru? Just made a few dog tags, and want to know when I'll replace them, for example.

What about for repairing boots?

Sorry, I know these are probably difficult questions since there are so many variables involved, but I'd love a ballpark figure.

I'm looking forward to getting my hands on some sugru.
