Simple IKEA Hack To House Your Game Controllers

Simple IKEA Hack To House Your Game Controllers

We're definitely no stranger to the wonders of the SIGNUM cord management system from IKEA. It's one of our favorite and most recommended tools to conquering the illusive cord monster. We're happy to see it being used in different and even more functional ways than it was initially intended for. IKEA HACKER recently posted a new use for SIGNUM and we couldn't help but share it.

We're all familiar with the SIGNUM cable management system from IKEA. It's extremely helpful and we've seen it used a lot in very successful ways. If you're looking to use it in a different way and also happen to have a game controller hoarding problem — this IKEA Hack is for you. IKEA HACKER reader Leslie submitted this face palm-why-didn't-I-think-of-that IKEA hack to control the amount of game controllers in the living room.

She was tired of the space above her radiator going to waste and there was a sale at IKEA (imagine that!). She mounted the SIGNUM systems to an old shelf and mounted that above the radiator. Now it's the perfect place to hold each game controller so they aren't all over the floor. We love how such a useful product was turned into an even more useful product!

How do you wrangle your game controllers?
