Cables are used in a variety of setups from homes to industrial use and when there are multiple cables all in the one area it can be problematic to find the one you need to work on without causing an interruption with others, especially when they are all the same colours. This is where the use of cable identification can come in handy for large or smaller cable bundles and wires. But what types of cable identification are there to choose from you ask? Well here is a quick guide to some of the different choices you can use for your cable setups.
Types Of Cable Identification Options
Identification Tags: Identification tags for cables are similar to that of dog tags. They generally feature a small cable tie with a tag attached that consists of a designated serial number or the name of what the cords are used for. These types of identification tags come in a variety of colours for optimal viewing at any time. They can also be available in customizable and blank options for you to easily write on for easy attachment and naming of your cables.
Heat Shrink Labels: Heat shrink labels are exactly as their name sounds. These labels are designed to shrink around the cables permanently when exposed to heat. These heat shrink labels generally feature the name or number of the cable printed on it, although can be customizable depending on the type use. These are great for permanent cable identification purposes of smaller wiring in commercial or residential areas.
Wire Markers: Wire markers are similar to that of any other cable identification product. These markers are designed to wrap around smaller cables and wires and generally feature a number and letters printed on them, although some may be customizable. These wire markers are great for home theatre setups and other residential or electrical wiring applications.
Cable identification is important to help you choose the right cables when it comes to unplugging, changing, fixing, or replacing your cables. So if your cables are messy or the same colour, then why not choose one of the cable identification products available for your application.

Admit it: you dread having to troubleshoot or make any changes to your computer setup or home theater equipment because it’s just too darn frustrating to weed through all those cords and find out which one goes with which component. And how many times have you accidentally disconnected the wrong one? It’s okay, it happens to the best of us, but to be quite honest, it sounds like you need some sort of cable label…
Label printers are terrific for labeling cables, but if you can’t justify owning one simply to label the cords of a few electronic devices, then I know of something I think you’ll be interested in: Kableflags® cable identification tags.

The soft PVC material withstands many reuses, and will never corrode. Another great feature of Kableflags is that they’re completely adjustable, so they’ll fit just about any cable, from thin wires to bulkier power cords.
