DIY Tech Wall Organizer – IKEA Skadis

DIY Tech Wall Organizer – IKEA Skadis


A common question I get with my desk setup
is where do I store all my stuff? And to be honest I usually try to store as
much as possible in boxes or containers in my closets to keep things out of sight. But there are some gadgets that I use much
too often to make this very efficient. Like my chargers, power banks, batteries,
USB cables and stationaries. To keep this all easily accessible without
taking too much space I put together this wall mounted system to organize my commonly
used gear. This gives me a one stop place to store and
charge all my gadgets. And is extremely flexible to reorganize and
adjust as my everyday accessories change in the future. Hi I’m David and this is my Wall organizer
and Gadget charger system. To start I went with a large IKEA Skadis pegboard. These boards come in multiple sizes and you
can combine them together, but I found one 76x56cm panel was enough for what I needed. Installing the pegboard is simple. The wall screws are not included, so you’ll
need to purchase on your own based on your wall. But after that, the pegboard attaches to the
mount with these thumb screws. And you install bumpers on the bottom to sit
on the wall. Also keep in mind the peg holes need to be
vertically oriented to use most of the optional accessories. Some of the accessories you can purchase along
with the pegboard include: These cups that I use to store some pens and pencils, as well
as some small tools like screwdrivers and scissors. In the other cup I just put these specialized
chargers when I’m not using them. But I’ll touch on them a little more later. The smaller lidded containers are great for
small items that can easily get lost such as batteries. USB key, Memory cards and adapters. There are also short and long hooks available
that can be used in a variety of ways. I use a longer one to store my commonly used
USB cables and you could also use them for storing your headphones as well. The large tray is the most versatile and I
use this to store my larger electronics like my cellphones and powerbanks. There are a couple creative ways I’ve thought
of organizing my gadgets in here. You could just simply stack them, or lay them
upright secured with these optional bungee cords. But I found lining them up like this, the
most efficient use of space. You could again use the bungee cords here
as a divider. But with pegboards, cheaper alternatives like
string or zip ties work perfectly fine as well. Since I also want to charge my devices here,
I used zip ties to attach this USB charger directly to the pegboard. And did the same with a powerbar for added
flexibility. With a couple short Micro USB and USB C cables
on the charger, I can easily charge my devices when they’re docked. And there’s still some extra room to plug
in those specialized chargers when I need them. I also added one of the short clips on the
side to keep the cables tidy when they aren’t being used. Since this charger also supports Power Delivery
over USB C, supported laptops can also be charged here as well. You could use the notebook stand accessory
for holding the laptop if you want to do something like this. But I typically just store a regular paper
notebook here instead. And finally, there are these clips that I
use for storing the odd item as necessary. So that’s my DIY gadget organizer and charging
station that I use to keep my desk uncluttered and store my commonly used accessories. Since it’s wall mounted, it doesn’t take
up too much space in my small place and it’s modular so I can change it up as I need, based
on the stuff I use in the future. But hope you guys enjoyed this one. You know what to do. And I’ll see you in the next video.

  72. unfortunately there is no dust managing, and in countries where dust is an issue, this build sucks… although its a neat idea!

  73. Totally stealing all of these ideas! Thanks!!

  74. Your video voice sound is so good. Which mic are you using? Did you use post-process audio software?

  75. super super smart ideas

  76. would these IKEA containers and pegboard accessories work on a regular, non-IKEA pegboard?

  77. SKÅDIS is pronounced skodis.

  78. Wow! it's amazing organizer ) thx for video

  79. I've picked up 2 at this point and I'm looking to get a couple more accessories. LOVE the large bin hack… gonna have to try that one.
    If you have access to a 3d printer there are HUNDREDS of pretty useful accessories for mounting items to those Ikea pegboards too.

  80. What a cool idea – Hope you don't mind if I copy it…. Ordering for my setup as I type….👍👍👌✔✔

  81. There is nothing DIY about this

  82. So adding a bunch of zip-ties to a off-the-shelf ikea product is now a DIY?
