I have the Tesla wall charger with the 24' cable. The cable drags along my garage floor, which is (shockingly) not kept spotless ;), so I wanted to find some protection for the cable to reduce abrasion. I settled on this spiral cable wrap from WalMart ($19.99 + tax):

I received and installed it today. Here are some pics. Note that even though I got the 25' wrap, there was still about 2-3' uncovered, but the parts that reach the floor are protected which was my goal.

Thought I would share in case anyone else wanted to get one.

Enjoy!

It gets used plenty. And I intend to keep it doing that for as long as possible.

Wouldn’t that wrap scratch the paint if it were against it? I’d rather chance the cord getting some wear and tear than the fender

it is smooth plastic; I doubt it would do much, if any, damage. Mine never touches the car anyway, but the cable definitely gets dragged across the floor.
