How do I Detangle my phone?
Anyone who has ever used a desk or wall phone knows they all have one major flaw: the cord gets tangled!. In the long run, it matters not how careful you are with the cord, eventually, the cord is going to end up a jumbled mess. Preventing a cord form tangling is the first place is where a phone detangler comes in.
Phone cords do not last forever. When a phone starts to tangle, the smaller wires inside the cord begin to bend the wrong way and start to develop small kinks. While the damage may not have immediate effects, it does add up over time. Eventually, the phone cord will start to static because of the damaged wires can no longer transmit a phone signal.
Along with a static line, tangled cords are just annoying. You sit there, on a call, trying to keep the cord straight as it wraps around itself, wraps around your hand, is in the way when you are trying to type on your keyboard and the worst is that you go to move your head and the cord doesn't move with you because it's a tangled mess. Eliminating this issue is arguably even more important than using a detangler to extend the life of the phone cord.
A cord detangler is very simple. The detangler goes in-between the handset and the coiled cord. One side of the detangler plugs into the handset (where the phone cord would plug in normally) and then the phone cord goes into the other end of the detangler. The part of the detangler connected to the phone cord spins around, preventing the phone cord from wrapping around itself and becoming tangled or damaged.
Like phone cords themselves, detanglers have a limited lifespan. Also like a phone cord, the lifespan will mainly depend on how frequently the phone is used. A wall phone in the kitchen used a few times a day will last much longer than a desk phone used 8 hours a day in an office. When a detangler does start to wear out, the phone signal can start to suffer from static. This can be easily fixed by simply replacing the detangler.
