Have you ever noticed how all those small cords supplied with your electronic equipment come in six-foot lengths (1.8m)? Probably six times what you actually need for connecting your laptop to your favorite device! And the result; a massive messy knotted tangle. Sometimes even damage.
Well, this issue was bugging us enough to design, patent and produce the simple and efficient Cableyoyo.
Cableyoyo is an empty spool around which you wrap your existing cord. It will take any cord up to 5mm in diameter, and this covers all low voltage chargers, USB, firewire, data and telephone cables.
The Cableyoyo’s cool design is ultra-thin so the cord cannot overlap when coiled. This neat coiling ensures that you can pack the most cord into the smallest amount of space and still keep it truly untangled and untwisted when extended. The ultra thin design also means it packs easily into those narrow pockets in a laptop bag or your pocket, with little bulging.
Cableyoyo is sold without cord. It is designed for use with your cords, in particular, those permanently attached to products such as cell phone chargers and digital accessories. Cableyoyo spools wire manually. It winds and unwind easily - however, it does not automatically retract cord.
Set the cord across the front of the Cableyoyo and begin coiling by turning the cord around the center. Coil until the desired length is achieved, then use internal clasp to fix position.
Use adhesive spindle to stick Cableyoyo to any nearby surface — behind your computer, on the wall, or under your table. Fasten Cableyoyo to the adhesive spindle. Push at center to remove Cableyoyo from the spindle. Cableyoyos maybe stacked several high or lined up to create a neat pack of cords.
Two small inbuilt clasps hold the cord at just the right length when you have finished coiling.
Unwinding is simple. Put your thumb and index finger in the center hole and just pull the end of the cord.
And finally, Cableyoyo is sold in three great stealth colors, black, white and silver to match your electronics. Get one for each cable, and then get some more for your friends. At $5, they make great gifts.
“I love all your products!! Your designs are great & state of the art!
The Cableyoyo I carry in my purse to charge my iPhone or iPod, CableDrop is awesome to keep my the cable on my Mac in line when being charged & the Cool Feet is great for keeping my Mac cool when in use either at hone or on the go.
Keep up the awesome designs.”

“I have a yoyo and a POP that came together. The pop was just what I was looking for for my earbuds and extension cable. The yoyo will be joined by more yoyos soon as I would much rather fish these out of my laptop bag than tie off the cords like I always do. Thanks!”
Kerry, Apopka FL
“Thank you! I hate cords, and I'm looking forward to cleaning up the cable mess.”
Ryan M., Portland OR
“Great products, thanks for making them, and in white too! Would love to see something that allows you to put between your laptop and your lap to block all the heat/emf's. I like the Cool Feet, but would like more like a little laptop stand that blocks the heat. Also would love to see more cord management stuff from you guys, great design.”

“Love the cableyoyo. I keep finding new cables I forgot. Will put labels on them.”
Cynthia, Oxford NC
“Neat, yes. Deceiving, perhaps. Perfect, not exactly. The Cableyoyo is a nice way to keep unending cords tamed, however the phrase "yoyo" makes you think you are getting something with will ravel and unravel far more smoothly than this product. This does not mean, however, that I do not use it everyday. I just wonder sometimes what is worse, a large cable holder which takes up a surprising amount of space on my desk, or some loose cable I can push around.”
Tiffany, Kalamazoo, MI
