I love this item  Time owned: 0 to 3 months
This cable tidy is neat and slick. It takes less than 30 seconds to install, and solves a very messy cable problem. It is a simple idea but it is well thought out, and the materials are high-quality. Especially the connector to the paddle PCB itself. Nothing cheesy about it. It really improves the look of my operating desk. Thanks, Gerry for a great item

Love it!!!  Time owned: 0 to 3 months
Just bought a "CableTidy" for my Vibroplex "Vibrokeyer." This is the single-lever keyer paddle as opposed to the iambic two-lever version.

I have been a ham for almost 50 years, and do a lot of CW work. The connection of the keyer cable (at the paddle) between the paddle and the keyer itself has ALWAYS been a complete PITA! My most recent version was wrapping the cable around the rubber foot underneath the unit and winding it aound the connection posts, holding it all in place with a rubber band! Goofy, but effective strain relief. Now that's something to be proud of - NOT! All other ways had strain on the wire connection to the connection posts - which eventually led to me needing to find yet another way to do it.

Then CableTidy came to my attention - I immediately grasped the concept and ordered one.

Construction is excellent and the package arrived from England (I live in So Calif.) sooner than a domestic order palced the same day! Exchanged emails with Johnny re which paddle I have, desired cable length, etc. - it exceeded my (I'm a picky guy)expectations and I now have a neat and good-looking solution to a years-old problem!

Thank you, Johnny!

Huge improvement  Time owned: more than 12 months
Johnny is a great guy with a great product. It vastly improves cable connections to Vibroplex paddles, always a source of annoyance because they keep coming loose. Now if Vibroplex will produce substantial finger pieces to replace the flimsy ones that they have on the VibroCube.
For those who are interested, Johnny is now making Cabletidys for GHD paddles, many of which have terminal connections for their cables that are similar to Vibroplex. You're a good man, Johnny.

Very nice  Time owned: 0 to 3 months
This is really very nice and good toy for using a vibroplex.
This is a lot better than the regular cable on the contacts of the Vibroplex now the Vibroplex is finish.
Vibroplex must have this as option when you buy a BUG!
Fast deliver abt 5 days earlier I order and today I get my new toy

Fantastic John!

a solution not a gadget  Time owned: 0 to 3 months
J bought it thinking to an interesting gadget for my Vibroplex that looked always messed-up with cables. Never thought it could be so nicely done, effective, and well packed as it is. A great little piece of hardware indeed. Also communicating with John is a pleasure.

Top Notch Idea.  Time owned: 0 to 3 months
Bought one of these on Ebay for My 1968 Vibroplex Original Deluxe Bug.
Exceeded My expectations. Excellent Fit and Finish. Fits into the Carrying Case while still installed. I failed to select the exact model
(My Error) while paying, but Johnny contacted me within an Hour or so asking for the exact specifications I would need. I received it in a short time. All in all, I would say, Excellent Product, Excellent Service, I would recommend it to anyone with a Vibroplex.
