IDEAS That Work CORD CONTROL Shower Curtain Rod Contains Cords We cut a plastic shower curtain rod cover into 2-foot sections and wrap it around cords lying across the base of our OR table. This keeps the cords from falling onto surgeons' feet during the procedure and protects the cords from being pinched when we raise or lower the bed.
