MOS – Magnetic Organization System from Kickstarter Review

MOG-1

Cables. Cables everywhere! If you’re like me you have your fair share of gadgets, and they all require different cables for charging. Keeping them all organized and untangled is something users of any OS have to deal with. A lot of products have tried to address this problem in a variety of ways. Kickstarter has been a haven for people to share their ideas for cable management. The Magnetic Organization System (MOS) is one of the better ideas to get funded.

MOG-2

As you may have guessed from the name, MOS uses magnets to corral your cables. It does this with rubber clips that attach to the ends of your cables. These clips have little magnets in them than attach to the metal base and keep the cables where you want them. Another advantage to the clips is that they come in three different colors. This makes it easy to know which cable goes to which device.

You can use the MOS on a table, or on the wall. The base has a micro-suction bottom that makes it stick to whatever surface you have it on. This is important so that the weight of the cables doesn’t pull it down. For using the MOS on the wall it has an adhesive sticker. The micro-suction works really well. It stays put when in place, but is still easy to pick up and move.

One thing I like about MOS is that it’s easy to use the devices while they are charging. The rubber clips are small and lightweight, so you can just grab the cable and plug it in and keep using the device. When you unplug the cable you can just plop it back on the base and it sticks. There is no bothersome clips or grips that you have to deal with. It’s a really nice system that seems obvious once you use it. One of those “why didn’t I think of this?” ideas.

MOS has been fully funded on Kickstarter, but it is already available at retailers like Amazon. If cable management is something you need the MOS is a great option.


  • I hope you meant 3/4. :)
    This looks pretty cool and would surely make my desktop more organized. I wonder how the magnets affect nearby monitors, tvs, and hard drives.

  • The magnets are pretty small. It shouldn’t be an issue.

  • Ditto to Joe. It takes a pretty tough-guy magnet to get through the electromagnetic shielding around HDDs. SSDs don’t even have to worry about the same problem.

  • Oooh, I’m jealous. I tried a homebrew version of this a few years ago, but I didn’t have strong enough magnets, the cables would still just fall off the back of my desk to the floor. I imagine this is a bit better, and I’d love to have one, it’s probably classier than my velcro setup now!

  • Just in case a fellow writer can contribute… ;) Or, just as an example.

    I have 3 pairs of IEMs (in-ear monitors, those earbuds that go inside the canal) that I’m regularly switching between for different genres of music. They’re almost always at my desk. It would be cool to keep the excess cable stowed away, and less of a damage risk if I didn’t have to ball them up, put them in a case, or just put them aside on the desk (Less handling in any sense means longer-lasting cables, and headphones consequently). Then there’s the mess of untangling them every. Single. Time…

  • Well, I’m gonna be to the point. I have a custom desktop PC (not a powerful gaming PC) and cable management is such a big issue for me! Wires always tangle up and it’s just ugly and messy. I’d love to win this! Thanks for the opportunity.
