We just moved, and are at a loss for how to safely secure the wires for our rear speakers to the floor. The challenge is that the entertainment center is centered on one wall, and the speaker “stands” (actually a bookshelf) are in the middle of the room, behind the couch. So stapling the wires to the trim at the bottom of the walls won’t really work. At some point, they have to trail over hardwood floors without being a trip or baby hazard. They run under an area rug for most of their length, but there’s still about two feet before the area rug and two feet after the area rug where they’re exposed.
At our last place, I used clear duct tape, which worked great until we pulled it up to move. Turns out clear duct tape pulls the finish off hardwood floors. :smack: I don’t care about that place - the floors were trashed to begin with, and they’re demolishing it now anyway. But these new floors were just refinished before we moved in, and I can’t let them get hurt.
I’m sure there’s some product designed to deal with this, but I don’t even know where to start looking. Ideas?
