    Anxiously waiting for my 75 delivery and been getting my garage ready. I'm curious to know what people are doing to organize UMC cord and the handle. I'm ready to be inspired!

    Congrats on the new car. Good time to get stuff ready for it. We installed a 14-50 outlet and bought Tesla's cable organizer to use with the UMC. Simple design, looks good and reasonably priced. Figured our beautiful car deserved something stylish and minimal on the wall too.

    Will add that as soon as the corded mobile connector comes back in stock we're ordering it so we don't have to keep pulling the adapter and connector out all the time from the bag in our car.

    If you guys are talking about cable organization on the wall, there was a discussion in one of the charging threads that recommended this:

    Gecko's Toes Water Hose Rack
    Put two of these together and wind your cord out of the way.
    Its more likely to be useful w/ the High Power Wall Charger, but I thought I would mention it.
    I have 2, and they hold the cord on the HPWC quite well. YMMV.

    Guess a lot of new owners buying the corded mobile and organizer. Good sign for Tesla car sales. Should be back in stock before the onslaught of M3 cars.

    Excellent recommendation, I use one of these for each HPWC's cable, works great to organize the 24' cable and the open hook at the top can use the part you use 'often' if you don't always need the whole length. Be sure to get the air hose size, as they have several 'gauges'. (See pix in my sig.)

    Tesla cable organizer (25$) + bicycle bottle rack to hold the UMC (no cost, from old bike) = perfect solution
