Replacing 2-3 Cisco L2/L3 switches in ~50 sites can be extremely time consuming when cables need to be replaced in the exact order due to port/VLAN configs. The Clips are a huge time saver. Every Network Admin should have a set!
It was a dark and stormy Halloween night and a networking engineer was stuck in a data center facing a Mission Impossible project: replace a failing Cat6500 with a brand-new Nexus 7000. Shouldn’t have been a problem, if only the cables were labeled.
Sums up perfectly why all DCs need SergeantClips:
I am very pleased with my clips and they help me swap out the customer switches in no time, versus taking the time to label every cable at 2AM.
Jeff loved his clips and even found an ingenious way to store them, read how:
The Sergeant clip is a beautifully simple cable management tool that holds a group of cables together…it could save you a lot of time and effort.
Louis Courau wrote a small review about the clips in his blog, you can find it here:
After years of patching cables from here, there and everywhere we eventually got round to installing a new CAT6 network. Our biggest problem was still people messing about with patch leads but this was resolved with your clips. You’ve saved us time and money and massively decreased our downtime. Our documentation also matches the real world now so we can easily keep track of our network infrastructure.
Superb and innovative product; we will definitely be telling everyone all about you!
I used the Sergeant Clips to replace some heavily populated Cisco 2960’s with 3750’s during a recent upgrade. Because I didn’t have to identify and document each individual cable, I was able to replace 3 switches in a Data Centre in under an hour. This would normally have taken me at least an hour per switch. I will be using my clips again and will definitely recommend them to companies I contract for in the future.

The Sergeant Clips performed wonderfully with my wiring closet swap outs I did back in December. It saved us a tremendous amount of time…I am very pleased with the product and will continue to use it going forward as well as recommend it to others. Thanks for making this product!

…our network technicians are loving the end result of this product. They have been a life saver in the upgrade project we have been engaged in over the last several months.
SergeantClip tames patch cable messes with simplicity!
I like em, and can absolutely recommend that you have a look at them for yourself.
