My clipper wires are always tangled! Can the omnicord help? Here’s what I found…
⇒If there is one thing that is the most annoying when it comes to cutting hair it is having your clipper wires tangle so much that it’s another job in itself to untangle them. No matter how much you try to keep the clippers organized it seems like the electricity attracts each other and the wrapping game happens. Where one wire tangles with another wire just so those wires tangle with the rest of the wires. ugh it’s so annoying because the weight can sometimes pull the plug from the sockets. It gives your station a very disorganized look, and I’m not sure if there is any link to this but I feel like it is damaging to my cords. I’m not sure how many cords I’ve replaced over the years, but it feels like it’s more than I’d like to. Well thanks to this thoughtful invention the solution may finally be here! I introduce to you The omnicord clipper adapter system! Well just omnicord I just added the “clipper adapter system” to make it sound cooler! Now that we’ve found what may be the answer to the problem. Let’s test the product out and see if it’s worth the hassle, or should you just switch over to a cordless clipper system? Well let’s find out In this review as I will share my findings of the products practicality, ease of use, pros, cons, and value! Let’s cross our fingers in hopes it is an option to handle the messy wire epidemic that plagues so many barbers.
It looks like the company Is located from out of Dacula, GA and states on the website that “omnicord looks to introduce innovative products to help barbers and stylist provide excellent services to guest by improving/upgrading clippers, trimmers, and other related products.”
Omnicord claims no affiliation with any of the clipper brands that are used in the field. So any swapping out of the cords may void any manufacturer warranty. Don’t quote me on that as I have to look that up to be certain, but it would be safe to say that the company would void any warranty of the tool when the original parts are compromised.
There is no clear time posted confirming the date of when the product was born. So I’ll give you my guesstimate to be around 2016! Which was just around the time I began seeing one or two hookups like this. The adapters are made for most of your major brand clippers making it safe to say all clippers can be used. As majority of the industry use those brand of clippers.
How much does it cost?
The pricing I found to be very reasonable for this product and its value. The frustration from the case of the tangled wires are finally over. SO here’s the rundown of the pricing.
You’ll need to purchase the Power cord which has two price point $40 for a designer cord which is just a colored cord & $30 for a regular black cord. As you can see I purchased the black because I didn’t need the color. The actual clipper adapters are $15/per. I purchased 1 cord and 4 adapters bringing my total to $90 which is about the price of one cordless tool.
With that low price tag it should be easy for one to swap out the clutter for a more stress free work station. The best place to purchase your adapters is bu clicking the link below.

How does the omnicord work?
The focus is to replace the numerous power cords that come from your clipper collection by giving you one cord for power supply, and cords equipped with adapters to hook up to the main power supply. This is achieved by removing your factory wires then connecting your new adapter wires that is attached to the power supply. There is a little clip that connects the two new wires, and then bam there you are a setup with no more messy wires.
Don’t worry I know that may have been a little confusing, but I promise you that it will make perfect sense as you keep reading this review. The hookup doesn’t decrease the power of your tools nor does it take forever to make the change to the new cords. It took me half hour to connect my first clipper but with the last 3 sets of tools I was able to complete the swap in about 10-15 minutes.
That’s how they work now let’s move on to the benefits and drawbacks.
The GOOD V. The BAD
Perfection only exist where satisfaction is met! Even then we are left with areas of letdown. Leaving us with the Pros and the cons to hash out. So what are they?
- rids tangled wires
- less cluttered drawers
- easy to travel with
- Not expensive
- easy to install
- No need to buy wireless clippers
- Turns factory cords obsolete
- Wire plug stop is a little too big for oster 76 machine
- You have to disconnect from one clipper to another
That’s it! For me the benefits outweigh the drawbacks pretty heavily. The wire plug stop (the name I gave it) didn’t prevent the connection as it just made the screw that tightens the power switch unable to screw ALL the way on. I can live with that!
Cordless clippers are on the rise so getting rid of clutter can be done this route as well, but if you don’t have the means to start over, or just because you like the steady power the omnicord adapter would be a great investment. Especially if you are annoyed with the clutter as much as I was.
Question: What is the issue?
Answer: Tangled cords and messy stations.
From my experience I can tell you that this product has solved the issue of the tangled wires.
Giving this product 9 out of 10!……..I approve
Omnicord does what it sets out to do I can say that I am more than pleased with this technological advancement. Cordless clippers are making A run and I know it won’t be long before I have a full set of cordless clippers. However, Until then I appreciate the chance to still have my direct current clippers without the confusion that it brings. After operating with this adapter I realize the swapping of the clippers taking 2 -3 seconds isn’t compared to the hassle of untangling cords with every time I pick up my clippers. I would have to recommend you try this product out letting you concentrate on performance and not tangled wires.

Great review. I like the reviews that come from personal experience, and it seems that this product has solved your problem. I believe others will follow in your footsteps and untangle those cords with this product.
Have a great day!
Thanks for dropping a comment. Is there any other way to review than actually using a product/service? At that point it’s just speculation. Tangled wires are a nuisance to me and i’m pretty sure they are to others as well. Can only hope others find the resourcefulness of this product as I did.
Thanks for sharing this informative and educative post. Its so frustrating cutting hair and the wire tangles, looking how many people left to cut their hair. I’m a barber by profession.This really came at the right time. I think I will try this product and I will strongly share this post to my friends so they can get one for their clipper.
No problem! Sharing is what i do. Any information to help out with the advancement of those in the field is a MUST! I’ve been using them a little over a month now, and I am more than satisfied with the investment. Make yours here and get back to me with your thoughts on them.
Hi Shannon! Yes, it’s sooo annoying when clipper wires tangle! And thank you very much for this solution. I’ll definitely buy the Power cord and six adapters. That would be $120. That is such a reasonable price. And I will be able to forget about those clipper wires getting tangled again. Why hadn’t I come to your site sooner? Thank you very much!
Well i have been away for a while with the Shop here in Boston needing attention so i’ve been pressed for time. Still learning time management but i’ll work towards getting more out there.
That being said I’m glad you are here now and i thank you for your comment. if you haven’t already make your purchase here, and enjoy your investment.

Thanks for bringing this first class experience review to us. I’m not a barber but I use my personal clipper to cut my beard almost daily and I also take it to my barber when ever I want to cut my hair. Tangled wire of clippers is not a good experience. It pisses me off Hence I appreciate this product you have presented to us. Also if I want to buy a good and solid clipper you can also help with things to consider before buying?
I sure can recommend a set of clippers for you! Head over to Tools of the trade for the beginning barber! There you will find my recommendations

This looks good for the particular application you describe in a salon or barbershop. I can also envision this to be useful for a technician at his workbench. I am trying to think when I might use this in my life. I don’t really have a problem with tangled wires. Also, I use more than one tool at the same time, so what I need is more outlets.Next time I’m at the barber shop I’ll take a look at the situation there and suggest to take a look at your post if they think it would be useful.Good luck with this. It looks like a good idea.
That would be cool if you’d share this gem with my fellow tradesmen/woman! Yeah i remember thinking i needed more outlets, then I got more outlets, which drove me to get more clippers. That in turn caused more tangling. Go figure!
What kind of tools are you using if you don’t mind me asking?
Tangled cords has always been a major pain in the ass for barbers. I know how it feels to try to separate clustered cords at the same time work. This omnicord seems to be a savior for barbers. Just like you said, the pros outweighs the cons and it’s going to lift the burden of rearranging clustered cords off barbers. And it’s interestingly affordable.
Major Pain is an understatement! One day I almost threw the whole shop away I was so frustrated and aggravated. Very affordable and worth every penny.
Thanks for dropping by
Hey Shannon! Thanks so much for writing this article. There is absolutely nothing worse and more frustrating than tangled chords. Not only does it look a mess, but it takes valuable time that could be spent being more productive and puts it towards untangling. This product is sure to remedy this, despite the few shortcomings it seems to have. Thank you so much for this thorough review and for offering your own unique experience with the product!
Yes Steve I have finally found the solution to the untangled wires, and i am happy! I have more space in my drawer, i’m no longer tripping over wires, and they are no longer pulling each other out of outlets.
Thank you for dropping a line
Hello Shannon,Looking at your article I can say that the adapter you recommend is definitely a solution to the problem of tangled wires.
I have a cutting machine that has a long cable that always get tangled and that every time I use it I have a whole time to stretch the wire.
I will click on the link to make the purchase.
Thank you! Claudio
Glad to be of help Claudio
If you only have one machine then this may not be a wise purchase because this prevents the hassle of having multiple wires becoming entangled!
If you don’t mind answering, what kind of cutting machine do you use?
Thank you for sharing your experience with omnicord. I am sure this is going to help many barber who dislike the messy wires at work station.
My uncle is a barber. Every time my husband goes to him for a hair cut, he will need to untangle his clipper wires before he cut his hair. This is just an extra work for him. He will definitely love this omnicord :).
Happy to share the outcome of this fabulous find. Tell your uncle that he won’t be disappointed. Especially if he cuts in high volume.
