be the best place to mount the unit?
||On a flat surface
closest to the tangling of excess wire. In
all cases, the unit may be mounted on a desk
or wall near the surge protector or power
source outlet. The WireMate can also be
placed flat on a desk, shelf or floor.
Devices such as modems and routers can also
be neatly stacked on it.
the tape or screws provided be used?
||The tape will work
for all situations and is very easy and
quick to do. Surface area should be clean
and dry before applying the tape. If most of
the wires are very thick, using the screws
may further ensure a more secure positioning
of the unit.
wires be placed in the unit base before
||It is better to
first mount the unit base. Once positioned,
it is easier to do the wire placement and
minimize excess tangling.
||Is there a
preferred wire looping pattern?
||Yes. Run the wires
through the center of posts, only leaving
the center to loop in the opposite
direction. This will form a figure 8 pattern
which will hold the wires more firmly in
place. The WireMate is designed to contain
50% of the wires within the posts, holding
them securely, regardless of how they are
looped, but a figure 8 pattern is
thick wires are present, how should the
wire looping occur?
||The unit base is
designed to handle the looping of varying
wire thickness. For an extremely thick wire,
loop it to an adjacent column of posts to
allow easier bending of the wire. It should
be rarely necessary to do this.
any mounting tape residue after relocating
the WireMate to a new location?
||Use acetone or a
citrus based cleaner. Check with your Home
Center for options.
WireMate be spray painted?
||Yes, a fusion spray
paint is suggested. Check with your Home
Center for options. It is recommended to
purchase your WireMate in white and only
paint the cover. The outer edge of the
base is 5/16" and will be minimally
noticeable once the cover is on. The
WireMate is available in White, Black and
