So simple, they're brilliant!  Time owned: 0 to 3 months
I have ordered 3x Cable Tidy's from Johnny.. one for a Vibroplex Vibro Keyer, one for a Vibroplex Bug (which I'm eagerly awaiting) and one for an RAF Type D Morse key. I have to say, Johnny has made a quality product here, and the design is so elegant, it just looks right too. I've had no issues fitting these to my keys. I am aware that some people may have had issues with the Type D key, but Johnny himself says in the literature that arrived with the 'Tidy' that "a small amount of filing of the contact holes may be necessary" on the PCB - these are keys that were made over 60 years ago in some instances, so tolerances may not be as tight as modern standards. Great communication from the seller and speedy despatch means you can buy from G3LIV with confidence. I am very pleased with my Cable Tidys.

Well made and...tidy!  Time owned: 0 to 3 months
Fantastic quality from the tip of its 3.5mm stereo plug to the end of the aluminium alloy DIN plug. Perfect fit on my Vibrokeyer!

Excellent product and service  Time owned: 0 to 3 months
Ordered cable tidy for recently acquired Vibroplex Original bug. G3LIV supplied a quality product and excellent service. Received an email the day I placed the order to say it had shipped and product arrived next day. Many thanks Johnny.

Vibro Cable tidy  Time owned: 0 to 3 months
Another really good shack accessory from Johnny G3LIV. Much much better than winding a bit of junk-box cable around the Vibroplex's terminals - this connector really looks a professional job and the supplied screened cable/plug seems good quality too. Well worth it!

Vib straight key delux  Time owned: 0 to 3 months
I have a Vibroplex straight key delux and the cabletidy ordered fit like a glove. Makes me wonder why Vibroplex doesn't include it and make the key complete. hi hi As a bonus my cabletidy even included detailed instructions for making additional cables for the rest of my rigs. Just can't beat that kind of service. If you want to complete that great Vibroplex you have in the shack order one of these custom connections for it, you won't be sorry.

Beautiful Piece of Kit  Time owned: 0 to 3 months
The Cabletidy is a beautiful piece of kit that accents the Vibroplex and makes it look completely finished. Much better than a piece of wire or a couple of crimp connectors. Johnny does an excellent job of making the Cabletidy and sends frequent emails to keep you updated on the shipping progress (he is also very personable). Mine came to California in only 7 days which is excellent because most packages seem to spend a few days in the West Sacramento sorting depot. Make sure you purchase yours now. They are very solidly built and finished. You can also build additional cables so you can move your key from radio to radio without unplugging from the back of the rig (a major pain if you have lots of equipment). An outstanding addition to your shack. Thanks Johnny!

Totally Satisfied  Time owned: more than 12 months
A wonderful product,I have had several over the past few years. When I sell a bug I sell it with the cabletidy attached and the bug sells fast! I just received a new one for my J-36 and it arrived in just 5 days! Very fast service and you can contact Johnny anytime with questions or information.

Superb!  Time owned: more than 12 months
Bought one of these quite some time ago for my Vibrokeyer and thought it was a knock-out product.

A year ago I donated another Vibrokeyer to our station on the Battleship Iowa, NI6BB, and of course I installed a Cabletidy on it.

ALL of the CW ops who saw it were mightily impressed, and I think several of them bought one from Johnny for their own use.

It's a great product!
