With the problem of tangled earphones apparently at epidemic levels we've had another release through in the form of the Mock Twisters, designed by LaRoo to keep your ear phones knotless whilst in a bag, pocket or any other receptacle for that matter.

With two holes for the ear buds, the idea is that you wrap the cord around the middle of the gadget before locking them into place (see picture).

There are three different twister designs, which include pink, black and funkalicious.

They look as though they might do the job, but perseverance maybe required if you want to avoid reverting to old habits: namely stuffing the earphones into a pocket with the Mock Twisters left languishing at the bottom of a bag somewhere.

The Mock Twisters are available from www.MyMocks.com and will set you back 3 whole pounds.
