Award winning, unique design, colourful and re-useable. The Cablebug makes labelling cables easier than ever.
Designed by a mother of 3 back in 2008 as a part time hobby, the Cablebug has expanded from 1 size and a few colours to 2 sizes and 12 colours to make a complete range.
Sold on their website www.thecablelabelco.co.uk, Amazon, eBay & a handful of key re-sellers, Cablebugs have recently been picked up by supermarket giants Tesco. This year has seen the company gain large interest from companies such as DSG, The Co-Op, Sainsbury’s and Argos alike.
Not only are they expanding globally through their e-commerce platforms but they are also being used in super high tech space suits in Austria, ball line technology at Wimbledon, re-fits of the Co-Operative group across the UK, in high profile government and health sector buildings and last, but not least, Cablebugs have been used by the staff at our very own Buckingham Palace.
The unique design means that the Cablebug2 fits cables from 2mm-5mm without moving around the cable or wire. This is because they have gates and bridges inside to grip gently onto the cable without causing damage. You can use Cablebug2 for your mobile phone chargers, keyboard and mouse leads, and most other household cables such as Cat5. Cablebug5 however are the same external size but do not have gates- meaning you can place a much larger cable through them. They were originally designed for Cat5E Ethernet cables but can be used on anything from 5mm-7mm such as main power leads.
The simplicity in the product is that you simply write on, then clip on and you’re away. You can also purchase specially designed sticker sheets to give a more professional finish and can download the template on their website. Cablebugs have also been tested in the heat of a comms cabinet and it has no effect on the plastic or the sticker sheets so you can put your mind at rest.
This product really is a “wish I had thought of that myself” one and the sheer simplicity of the design combined with company’s impressive organic growth and understated attitude to their success thus far is what makes it so very impressive.
