WireWeights are an inventive and simple solution to a common problem. Every PC user knows the routine of having to tug on your mouse from time to time because the slack in the wire always falls back behind the desk. The WireWeight remedies this problem by fitting onto the wire, preventing it from falling behind the desk. The WireWeight is not designed just for the mouse, it can be used with peripherals such as the keyboard or flash card reader.

Pictures of the WireWeight:

The WireWeight we received was the black zinc plating, however they are available in several different styles to fit your needs. To use the WireWeight it is as simple as unscrewing the top, placing the wire in, and gently screwing the WireWeight back together. Brass is a very dense material, and the WireWeight weighs in at half a pound, more than enough to keep your wires in place while using the computer.

The picture on the left shows a typical mouse cord, while the picture on the right shows the cord from my keyboard.

WireWeight's recommends installing the WireWeight 15 to 18 inches from the front edge of your desk while adding an additional 4 to 5 inches of wire slack between your mouse and WireWeight.



The WireWeight is a very simple and attractive solution to very common problems associated with wired PC peripherals. Since the first day of using the WireWeight with my mouse, I haven't taken it off, it's that good of a product! Sure you could probably hold your mouse wire down with something else, but it probably wouldn't look as attractive or work as well. The WireWeight is precision machined and comes in a variety of platings, the look is very professional and clean, suitable for home or office use.

The WireWeight is reasonably inexpensive, about $15 + shipping, and if you want to save a few bucks, they sometimes have "WireWeight Mishaps" at discounted prices. The WireWeight would even make an excellent gift for any PC user (you can get custom designs put on them too).

You really have to try out the WireWeight for yourself to appreciate the simplicity yet functionality of the product.
