The CrocSee Cable Management Sleeve has impressive specs but also has quality concerns and no warranty to help make those quality concerns less worrisome. It’s offered in many different sizes, the only cable sleeve we’ve reviewed with that option.

|Positives||CrocSee offers this cable sleeve in a lot of different sizes and lengths. Self-closing is our favorite type of cable sleeve. It offers thermal protection and is the cheapest cable sleeve we've reviewed.|
|Negatives||The shortest length available is 10', meaning users with standard setups will most likely need to trim the sleeve. The reviews on Amazon are mostly favorable, but issues about how well it stays closed and wrong dimensions popped up many times in user reports.|
CrocSee Cable Management Sleeve
Many cable sleeves require a special tool, close with velcro or close with a zipper, this CrocSee cable sleeve naturally curls itself around however many cables you put inside. In that method and by appearance, it’s very similar to our top-rated iMovR Tucker cable sleeve.
The CrocSee comes in 10 different sizes, ranging from 1/4” in diameter up to 1” in diameter. The lengths range from 10’ to 25’. While it’s not completely necessary to have this many diameter choices (part of the appeal of a self-closing sleeve is that it’s very flexible on size depending on how many cables you put inside), it’s better to have too many options instead of not enough.
The lengths are very long compared to other cables sleeves for standing desks that we’ve reviewed (most are around 5’ to 6′), which seems like a good thing, but if you have a standard standing desk setup, the sleeve will likely be too long. If it’s too long, you’ll have to cut it and either deal with fraying or use a cigarette lighter to sear the ends. This might be a step beyond what some users are willing to do.
Unfortunately, the mostly-favorable Amazon reviews are peppered with complaints ranging from how well the sleeve stays wrapped around cables to the dimensions not matching up with the listed dimensions. Quality control appears to be an issue with this particular manufacturer.
This cable sleeve does claim thermal protection up to 302°. It’s also quite cheap, starting at $6.79 and topping out at $17.84.
CrocSee is apparently trying to corner the market on protecting cables from getting chewed on by house cats, with multiple photos on the product page and even more mentions about how this sleeve will protect cords from voracious felines.
Cats aside, this cable sleeve compares favorably to our top-rated sleeve on specs, but falls short on the details. It has no warranty, while the best components we’ve reviewed have 5-year warranties. It also has no mention of ROHS or REACH certification, or halogen-free construction. There are also persistent quality complaints.
CrocSee has provided a great deal of differently-sized options with thermal protection and a cheap price. Because all of the sizes are quite long, it’s best suited for applications that require exceptional length. On standard setups, users will have to do some DIY to make it short enough to work.

Cable management is an excellent place to start but it’s best to think of your ergonomic setup as a work in progress. There are always ways to improve. Check our in-depth reviews on standing desks, keyboard trays, monitor arms, ergonomic seating and standing mats.
