Neat Patch is the ultimate in patch panel rack cable management system - a storage solution unlike anything the network cabling world has ever known. Its unique design enables network installers and IT techs to store excess patch cable length in a neat and tidy compartment that installs discretely (and discreetly!) between patch cable distribution panels.

  • By using 2-foot patch cords to create 48 port cycles, Neat-Patch allows you to store single-coil circuits right in the rack, instead of down the sides.


Neat Patch saves Cable Installers and IT managers time and money by eliminating the clutter and expense of unnecessarily long patch cords. You'll find that our shorter, space-efficient patch cables require no vertical management. With Neat-Patch, the only reason that you'd use vertical cable management would be to fiber-link network switches.

Smart and Easy Rack Cable Management with Neat Patch

Neat Patch server cable management

So, you've reached the point where it hurts just to look at the tangled network cables spilling from the rear of your server rack. You can feel your blood pressure spiking every time you need to isolate a single cable among scores of identical ones. And forget about ever walking clients or visitors through your server room… the disorganization is just too embarrassing.

Luckily, has a solution. Allow us to introduce you to Neat Patch, the rack cable management system that's restoring lost time, money and sanity to IT managers and network installers around the world. With a design that's heavy on common sense and simplicity, the Neat Patch installs quickly to transform structured cabling nightmares into rows perfectly ordered patch cords. And we would know – we're Neat Patch users ourselves.

What exactly can the Neat Patch do for you? Here are a few of our favorite benefits:

Saves You Money

Don't get us wrong – long patch cords have their place, but we think it's more than a little wasteful to use a 7-foot cable to bridge the gap between patch panel and switch ports that are only a foot or so apart. The Neat Patch system is based on 2-foot patch cords, which are a far cry from the bulky, needlessly long 7 and 10-foot patch cables that are often spec'd for LAN server installations.

Think of how much extra money you're spending on cable you don't even need. Add to that the cost of all the cable management that's insufficiently “managing” those tens or hundreds of feet of unnecessary copper cabling. When the expense of a major industry leader's long patch cords and cable management troughs is pitted against the price of Neat Patch's signature deep-pocket cable manager and 2-foot cables, Neat Patch is the undisputed winner, cutting costs by as much as 50%. Hundreds or even thousands of dollars freed for better uses… makes you think, doesn't it?

Protects Cable Bend Radius

In addition to saving you money, Neat Patch's 2-foot patch cords are also the perfect length to form exactly one loop – no more, no less. These single-coil circuits not only eliminate cable strain, they also promote optimum bandwidth within your network. As a matter of fact, Neat Patch is the only cable manager that complies with BICSI-recommended* network cable bend radius standards.

Saves Rack Space

Many IT managers don't realize it, but there is hidden “prime real estate” in server racks that can be maximized just by installing a Neat Patch. Long patch cables are too bulky for proper management; they have nowhere to go but down and out, and tend to cause disorganized mess every time. On the other end of the spectrum, Neat Patch actually enables you to organize its short, single-coil patch cords within the rack itself.

Neat Patch's deep-pocket cable managers are rack mounted horizontally between patch panels and their corresponding network switches, in order to contain the single loop of cable that results from each connection. No overflowing vertical cable channels – just perfectly organized rows of patch cables.

Curious about how far you can stretch your available rack space? With Neat Patch, up to 384 single-coil circuits can be housed within a 7-foot rack… and you'll still have room left over for rack mount UPS and a fiber panel.

Eliminates Wasted Time and Frustration

Neat Patch sets you up for successful network management from the very start. Why waste time digging through hundreds of identical tangled cables to find the right one? A Neat Patch single-coil circuit can be traced in a second, literally. And they're equally easy to replace. Need we say more?
