Suppose I have a desk phone similar to this one:
Or maybe one that's even smaller, like this one:
When using it, and moving around a bit, getting up from my seat or whatnot - the cord extends (it's flexible and short after all), tugging at the base. And the base, well - it moves, even with a relatively small amount of force exerted.
Now, this isn't really in my office, where I could do whatever I want (e.g. affix the phone to a wall, or drill holes into the desk for affixing the base there, or using strong glue). But - I still want to keep it in place. How would I do that?
