What are those "rings" people use to organize cables underneath their Pedaltrains?

    Not talking about tie wraps but small plastic (?) rings that are used to tie and route various cables

    I think you are talking about the black zip ties that come with most pedaltrains.

    The plastic wrap is a cable organizer you can get thru hardware stores or places like Radio Shack. The others are zip ties and zip tie mounts.

    zip ties and zip tie mounts. You can get them at Radio Shack or Home depot. The zip ties are fully adjustable to fit your needs, then you cut the excess off.

    I'm also looking for those last night and they're also called cable tie mounts. It depends on the applications I guess. The rig builders at HRI seem to use them to let the power cables that come from the power supply units pass thru them to keep them organized.

    I'm looking for ones without adhesives though as I'm planning to use velcro underneath them like a pedal. I ordered a pedalboard from nycpedalboards.com and their board surfaces are the loop side of the velcros so factory-installed adhesives would be out of the question.

    You would use the same zip tie mounts and just remove the adhesive and replace w/ DuaL Lock or velcro or screw them down.

    The powercon box is a junction box. The 2 PSU are wired directly into the junction box and the powercon outlet is just a dedicated connector to lock the power cable to the pedalboard.
