Description

A Cable Turtle from the 1990s. This cable tidy has a thermoplastic elastomer shell which opens up to allow you to wind excess electrical cable around the centre, then roll closed, neatly shortening and storing untidy cables. The shape resembles a turtles shell when closed. Its design, a concept by Flex Development has won many awards and it is included in the Museum of Modern Art's Design Collection.
