Tip of the Day

Yesterday, I wrote about a use for some Avery labels to identify information on USB flash drives.  Today, I wanted to mention a use for another type of label, Rectangular Color Coding Labels


For those of you who have multi-channel audio systems who try to route your speaker wires in the most inconspicuous manner possible, trying to identify which wire set goes with which channel can become quite challenging. These particular labels are only 1/2” by 3/4”, and they wrap around a speaker wire quite nicely.  Do this to both ends while you still know which end goes with which mating end, and life becomes good once again.

Obviously, I am sure you can find other uses for such a system.  And, yes, I am sure you can find an alternative to these labels.  Perhaps various shades of finger nail polish?  And, yes, you might have a small problem if you have a 7.1 speaker system.  If that is the case, you might have to combine a set of labels, perhaps green and yellow, to identify one wire set.

For more information, check out the Avery website or Amazon, which I where I purchased my package from.
