Use Blu Tack

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

Hi, basically using blu tack for various things for computers is something I think is so underused, like cable management, to hold a wire in place if it needs to be held at a funny angle to work, I use it on my phone charger so i can stick it to my bedside when its unplugged for when I need it, but yeah Blue tack, what do you guys think?

Maybe.. I don't know about cable management though. 

Take what I say with a grain of salt, some things may not be correct.

I guess it would be useful for picking up particles or fallen screws in hard to reach places but for cable management I just don't see it.

If your pozi drive is not magnetic, forcing the screw tip in with blutac can create a vacuum that will help stop it from falling out.


You can use it to plug a small hole in your fly screen or gap in the wall where ants come in.


You can use it as a stress relief device if your boss has banned fidget spinners.


You can put posters up on your wall like this:





Incidentally, if your bedroom didn't look like this then you are uncultured and need to go listen to some big hair bands from the 80's.
