Rockler's magnetic cord keeper is a convenient way to store a cord right on the tool.
Most of the machines in my home shop are on wheels, and they get moved once in a while. That means unplugging the power cord and draping it over the tool somehow, whether it’s over the table of the bandsaw or over the fence rails of the tablesaw.
Inevitably, though, while I’m rolling the tool the cord slips off and drops to the floor. Then I either step on the cord, trip on it, or roll the wheels of the mobile base right into it, halting progress instantly. Frustrating.
Rockler has come up with a clever solution to the problem, though, with its magnetic cord keeper. Just attach it to the tool, pop the cord into it, and you’re ready to roll—without obstacles. The holders are also handy for storing pencils and drill chuck keys.
The “jaws” of the holders will grab most cords, but they’re too narrow for heavy-gauge ones. They sell for $8 a pair, at www.rockler.com.
The cord keeper also is great for holding drill chuck keys and pencils.

The holes were too small to hold any of my cords so I returned them. My guess is they're just re-branded for rockler and were originally meant to hold pencils on refrigerators.
