Love our Cord Keepers, but want a specific print or custom length? You're in the right place!
Do you worry about your cords and tubes at night? Does your loved one have multiple tubes that somehow seem to always get twisted and knotted up? (Like the temperature probe and the ventilator tubing?) Does your child wake up in the morning hopelessly tangled in his or her tubes? Are you just plain tired of looking at boring tubes all day?
Our Cord Keepers help keep lines away from curious fingers, help reduce occlusion and condensation, reduce the risk of entanglement at night, and are just plain fun. They may be pinned to clothing near stomas or entry sites or to legs or feet of pajamas, but should not be pinned to collars. Many caregivers use these at night to tuck cords along the side of the crib or bed. They've even been known to make grumpy children more accepting of their various tubes.
Cord Keepers will hold 1-3 IV or feeding tube-size tubes. If you prefer it NARROWER, to hold JUST one tube, please make a note when you check out. SINGLE tube Cord Keepers can be hard to snap and unsnap, but will lay more snugly against the tubing.
Our Custom Cord Keepers are available in seven standard lengths -OR- we can make them any length you wish (if you want a length not listed here, please contact us). Cord Keepers close with high-quality KAM snaps located every four inches along the length. Tubes can enter and exit the Cord Keeper at any point.
72 inches (6 feet)
300 inches (25 feet)
Please visit our available fabrics page and pick our favorite - find a second choice, as well, as not all fabrics will have enough available for every width/length of cord keeper. You may choose the Outside (visible) fabric only; we will choose a coordinating inner fabric. If you prefer, we can also purchase fabric for you, or use your own fabric - cost will vary. Please contact us if you'd like either of these options.
Personalization with Names or Phrases is available!
If you would like your item to be personalized with a name or short phrase, please type the name or phrase you'd like EXACTLY as you'd like them in the space provided. (I'll copy/paste exactly what you typed, including punctuation, so don't use quotation marks unless you want them on your item). You may also indicate the font you prefer (by number) and what color thread you prefer (if you have a preference - if no preference is indicated, we'll choose what we think would look best).
If the print you've chosen is busy (lots of colors, lots of details), a thicker/fatter font will show up better.
We do not accept returns on embroidered items for any reason.
Please use common sense when using the Cord Keepers. Do Not attach to the patient's collar. Keep exhalation ports uncovered. Completely remove Cord Keeper when doing any maintenance on the lines - connecting or disconnecting IV tubing, for example. Wash your cord keepers frequently and any time they are soiled.
Not sure what length you need? It depends entirely on your intended use and your personal preference. Got a small tubie who wears his pump in a backpack and wants something fun covering the tube as it goes from backpack to belly/nose/port? The 12 inch size will probably work great. Got a tubie who keeps her feed on a wheelchair pole? Depending on how far away she is from the pump, 23 or 35 inches would be perfect. The best way to decide what will work best for your needs is to actually measure the length of the tubing you want to cover.
Please note that some photos show the Cord Keeper along with a matching Feeding Pump Bag Cover. This listing is only for the cord keeper.
