Hold one end of the cable in dominant hand.
Starting at the end of the cable that is in the dominant hand, take your non-dominant hand and slide your thumb and pointer finger down the cable about 1 foot. The purpose of sliding your fingers down is to smooth out any kinks that may be in the cable at this time.
Bring cable up to dominant hand to form a regular loop – don’t force the cable smaller than it naturally wants to go.
Next, you will be making an inverted loop. Take your non-dominant hand and twist your hand so that your thumb is going downward toward the center of your body and your palm is facing out towards your elbow of the same arm.
Bring loop back up to dominant hand while twisting your hand back into normal position. The part of the cable you are holding in your non- dominant hand should be underneath the start of this loop formation. Bring loop in as shown in the picture below.
Repeat steps 3 through 5 until cord is completed coiled.
When the coiling process is complete, loops should not be over lapping each other. When looping, make sure to keep control to avoid knotting when it comes time to uncoil.
Uncoiling should be easy when this process is followed correctly. Cable should uncoil straight with no kinks quite quickly.
Make sure to adjust cable while coiling to ensure there are no kinks or twists that feel unnatural.
Tie cables with a twist tie of some variety – never tie cable with itself.
