NO.1= Go to radio shack or local electronic or telephone parts store .. for me Radio Shack and buy a $3.00 telephone cord swivel get two one for phone jack and one for hand set! Tangle free Handset phone chord! lOL

No.2= Next Slinkies are great and easy to untangle if you know how to do it! YSeany is right the cheap plastic ones stink. I sent a friend a couple slinkies for Christmas as I loved them.. you must work your way down one coil at a time and Voila! Untangled! LOL I have always been a slinky Girl and the stairs are great fun if you know how to slink! LOL

The metal ones rock! And they can be quit fun if you practice!

Mine work great after untangling.. I have been a loyal slinky kid since me was about three years old! LOL


They are great!

For a long time I have thought that phone cables were curled so it would prevent kinks and tangles.

Slinky's rock though.


Some people are like slinkys... not really good for anything but they still bring a smile to your face when you push them down the stairs.
