About this project


Does This Look Familiar?

Everyone hates the cords under their desk. You know you should crawl under there and organize the mess, but cords are hard to hide and nobody likes crawling around on the floor, so the mess just gets worse. While the top of your desk is organized and productive, underneath your desk is a whole different story.

Never Crawl Under Your Desk Again
Never Crawl Under Your Desk Again

The trick to solving this problem is to move your power strip to the top of your desk. But that is only half of the solution. The cords and cables must then be organized and hidden away. The Recoil Maze locks cables into place while keeping them accessible.

The Power Maze is designed to be narrow enough to fit perfectly behind your monitor, allowing you to sit at your desk and organize your cords without having to crawl around on the floor.

Made of 22 gauge rolled steel, the Power Maze is quality-built and the elegant design fits perfectly into a modern workspace environment.

The Power Maze is perfect for any place there are a lot of cords in one spot:

  • Entertainment centers
  • Gaming systems
  • Copy rooms and other office settings
  • IT rooms

The Power Maze is also designed to be wall mounted when your space requires it.

Inserting your power strip into the power maze is as simple as applying the provided adhesive to your power strip and sticking it into place. Standard power strips up to 3.25" x 12" fit perfectly.

The Maze Cord Locking Patches are the heart of the Power Maze. Months of design, prototyping and testing have gone into the Maze, and the result is a highly effective cord storage system.

One of the design challenges was to create a space that would store
not only cables, but also the brick shaped transformers that are on many computer power cords. We succeeded, and now the Power Maze is designed to fit 2 transformers in the bottom compartment.

The shell of the Power Maze is made from 22 gauge rolled steel, giving it the weight and stability to hold your cords without being wobbly, and is built to last forever.

The Maze Cord Locking Patches are made of high quality Polyethylene, and are designed to be strong and durable while remaining flexible enough to grab and hold cords and cables of all sizes.

The cover of the Power Maze is reminiscent of a high quality audio speaker, with a woven skin that prevents dust from entering while allowing adequate air flow to prevent heat from building up.

Our team worked long and hard to create a product that has a solid, high quality feel that will solve your cord problem without adding a low quality piece of plastic to your workspace.

The Power Maze is a simple solution to a difficult problem which we think is the definition of great design. We think you will agree.

Thank you Kickstarters for supporting us from the beginning, we literally could not have done it without you!

Risks and challenges

As with any new product launch, production is where things can get tricky. New vendors, new materials, new processes and techniques all carry the possibility for delays and complications. But we have done our homework, built and tested prototypes, hired trusted manufacturing partners and we are confident in our ability to watch the details and produce quality products on-time.
The Recoil team has years of experience in both manufacturing and fulfillment, and while past experience can not prevent complications and delays, it has taught us how to handle those complications quickly and efficiently so that our challenges never become the customer's problem.
