OK so i have inherited a cable nightmare with 2 Cisco 6509s im looking for a small front mountable bracket or single module brackets. i have about 5 inchs in front of the 6509s to work with. as of right now they have used back bracket bars for power cord management on the front...... it works but its not pretty. so im in the processes of rewiring them and im looking for some ideas that meet our needs. thanks

These are what we use in our racks.

it would be perfect if they were vertical blades but they are horizontal :-( there has got to be something that is a smaller form factor for a 6509

Based on what you show I would go with:  http://www.cdw.com/shop/products/C2G-Premise-Plus-rack-cable-management-panel-vertical/1157977.aspx#PO

And a roll of velcro you can pick up and your local store.

This puts a vertical cable guide on the side that you route your cables to and the velcro to tie them together to get there.  

We run horizontal cable guides between devices however it sounds like you con't have the room for that. We still use velcro to keep them bundled.
