    The house that I recently moved into has an external electric meter. The meter is boxed in but there is around 6 feet of mains electrical cable that is exposed - it's clipped to the wall but that's it. I was looking for a quick and easy way to cover the cables but most solutions seem to need me to remove the cables from the wall first which I don't want to do. From googling around I found this:

    http://www.cableorganizer.com/surface-raceways/wire-guards.htm

    This would be perfect but I can't find anything similar in the UK. Does anyone know of a similar product that I could use? Or are there other solutions?

    Thanks.

    Many wholesalers stock it, known as Cable Guard or Cattle Guard. Comes in two versions, a flat profile and a bevelled profile. Bevelled for poles. Flat for walls.
