    Hello all,

    Instead of using Tesla expensive cable organizer, what alternatives did you guys use to organize your mobile connector cables? I tried looking into Canadian tire and home depot, nothing really stand out that would work. Thank you.

    The thing about the 1.0 version of the Tesla organizer was that it covered the working tip of the coupler so less likely to get snow/ice in the mechanism. V 2.0 not so much. "Cali" design?? In a carport, as we have, V 1.0 is beneficial or maybe cover with an elastic sock etc.

    Failing any of that, a quick and dirty solution is a holder/hanger for a yard hose. They can handle both the length and the weight easily.

    All of these are great ideas and too easy to use. We will never use them. Give us good-old-harder ways to do stuff.

    I want one of those retractable things you put in the ceiling that lifts the cord up and out of the way. Having the cord laying on the dirty garage floor while charging and then having to touch that to coil it up on any of those wall hangers above is not really ideal. As it is, I just touch the charging head to plug it in, then hang it over the snowblower while the cable lays on the garage floor. Also not ideal.

    I've spend a fair amount of time looking for retractable things. This is the closest that I have found.
