How to properly wrap a cable


For those of us in the event and festival industries, wrapping up a cable is an essential and never-ending part of life.  However, many people still do it the wrong way, that results in kinks and twists; there are two proper methods for coiling up a cable that, when stretched back out, results in a perfectly straight, tangle-free cable. 

Rather than the normal “around the elbow” method we may have learned as kids, the “over under” method is one most commonly used in the production world.   The London School of Sound was kind enough to provide the cable wrapping world with a video that demonstrates the art of cable wrapping with two options – a slower one for novices and a faster “bow and arrow” one for those able to master it.
