Latest UT WireT Innovation Eliminates Frustration Both Inside and Outsidethe Home

Anaheim, CA – November 2011 – Anyone who has ever resorted to using a household rubber band as a makeshift solution for unsightly, tangled electrical cords (not to mention other eyesore clutter) knows just how frustrating they can be. They’re either too loose, too tight, become a tangled mess themselves, or they snap just when you think you’ve got them right. UT WireT, the manufacturer of innovative cord-organizing products, recently unveiled a new product that replaces the makeshift rubber band for good. Q KnotR, a colorful, reusable multipurpose tie for just about anything, systemizes cluttered messes in the home, the office, the craft room, the garage and the garden with ease.

Thanks to technology, cord clutter has become such an epidemic in American homes and offices that FOX Business News recently devoted a whole segment to eliminating it. “Between electrical cords, computer cables and phone connections, the average home office is a tangle of cords that are not only unsightly, but can be a health hazard. Overloaded circuits can lead to equipment damage or fires, and trailing cords present a tripping hazard,” the news channel pointed out.

Many of these cord-attributable risk factors can be avoided if the wires that cause them are properly cared for. That’s where the Q Knot comes into play. The product’s award-winning, smart self-locking design is stretchable and flexible to bundle multiple objects, including electrical cords, safely and effectively. The secret to the Q Knot’s efficacy lies in its built-in non-slip, gripping teeth. Yet for all its ability to hold securely, the Q Knot is easy to release and retie, making it an environmentally friendly must-have in every home.

Available in colorful primary hues, the Q Knot Original makes a fun and handy addition to the kitchen, craft room, a woman’s bathroom and kids’ play areas and bedrooms. The Q Knot Pro takes the awarding-winning design of the Original to the next level with new slanted triangular teeth that make it grip harder for heavy-duty tasks. Available in understated neutral colors, the Q Knot Pro lends itself to the garage, DIY workspaces, gardens and tool sheds.

Small in its construction, the Q Knot packs a big difference in organizing cord and household/office clutter. Other practical uses for the product include sealing plastic food bags so the contents stay fresh longer, keeping portable electronic devices tangle free in bags, purses and suitcases, and organizing indoor and outdoor holiday light sets.

Sold in packages of 12 (MSRP $5.99) and 25 (MSRP $8.99), the Q Knot Original can be found at The Container Store, Crate & Barrel, Storables, CVS, Rite Aid and Amazon.com. The Q Knot Pro is sold at select Home Depot stores and at HomeDepot.com also in packages of 12 (MSRP $6.50) and 25 (MSRP $9.98). The Q Knot Pro officially launched at Home Depot in the Georgia regional market and can be found nationwide at Orchard Supply Hardware, Menards and online at Amazon.com. All Q Knot variety packs retail for under $10.

Q Knot was recently awarded the distinguished 2012 IF Design Award out of 2,000 products for its innovative design. For additional information on Qknot, please visit www.Ut-wire.com.
