PVC conduit clamps reduce extension cord clutter and tripping hazards.

Most of my power tools reside on mobile bases. But the required extension cords can be a tripping hazard and a caster catcher.

To clean up the cord clutter, I use 2-hole PVC conduit clamps. A variety of clamp sizes make it easy to choose the appropriate size for the coiled power cord. I attach the clamp to the side of each mobile base using only one hole. When it's time to move the tools, simply spring open the loose end of the clamp and tuck the cord bundle inside.
