1/2“ is probably not going to be high enough off the floor to escape the static electrical field. How about the old toilet paper roll cylinders idea and put two notches on one end? Talk about cheap! 🤗

I've never used cable risers and I'm a bit skeptical, but this is might be a cheap way to experiment rather than let my uninformed bias rule!
Its called proof of concept: Will elevating work? Elevate and see. That's exactly what I did. Only I didn't buy anything. Why, when books and cups and a hundred other things are just laying around the house?
Only after doing this enough times with enough different materials to prove the concept, only then did I buy a set of Cable Elevators.
Then as it turns out the more resolving things get thanks to little improvements like elevating the easier it gets to hear other little improvements, like elevating interconnects, and power cords, and routing them in nice smooth arcs that stay away from other cables.
But one thing at a time. What did it sound like when you tried your first experiment like this?
I went to Home Depot today and bought a bag of the Grip-Rite rebar chairs, 20 of ’em for $3.60. Each has a 3" circular base, a 2.25" tall upright, on top of which is an open top half circle, plenty big enough for fat power cords and speaker cables, and any interconnect save the really wide flat type. Thanks @qilin_maker! I can recycle my toilet paper rolls now ;-) .
