Sample Cord Keeper

Cord Keepers - Funner to look at than plain tubes, and safer, too! Do you worry about your child's cords and tubes at night? Does your child have multiple tubes that somehow seem to always get twisted and knotted up? 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? (or is your child?)

Our Cord Keepers help keep lines away from curious fingers, help reduce occlusion, 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. (We're in a bit of a transition here from our OLDER STYLE Cord Keepers to our NEWER STYLE Cord Keepers. Older Style Keepers only hold ONE tube. After hearing feedback from caregivers that they wanted a bit more room in the Cord Keepers, we've switched to a slightly wider design that's also easier to get on and off the tubing. BOTH styles are available at the moment and are noted in the selection menu. The OLDER STYLE 12inch long Keepers we have are IDEAL for covering that tubing between feeding pump backpack and stoma.)

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.

Cord Keepers are available in several different lengths, which are noted in the selection menu. In addition, we can custom make a Cord Keeper in any length you want.

How do you know what length you need? It depends entirely on your intended use. 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 (or backpack to 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, the 23" or 35" sizes would be perfect. Want something to stretch along the length of your tubing? Get a 41" or 60" length! 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 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.

These Cord Keepers are in stock and ready to be shipped.

"Thank you for the Cord Keeper you made for my grandma! She loves having a pretty cover on her IV tubing and is the envy of her friends at the care center." - Shelly P.

We can make custom Cord Keepers for you using any of the fabrics we have in stock, or even using your own fabric. The cost is just a little more than the cost for in stock items, and there is usually a short wait. If this is what you want, please sign up for a spot on our Made to Order items waiting list.
