My laptop adapter cable was very loose and it was being unplugged with the slightest movement of laptop. Since it is an old and bulky laptop I did not want to carry around it's battery. I needed something to keep the jack in place.
After googling I found jerkstopper
. Unfortunately it is not being sold in my country. So I thought I can utilize the same mechanics with a simple DIY thing.
Step 1: Supplies
- PS2 to USB adapter (any kind of thing that sticks into your laptop can be used though)
- Plastic strap
Step 2: Insert into slots
Insert cable and USB to PS2 adapter into their slots.
Step 3: Tie up
Tie the power cable and adapter together with plastic strap, then cut the extra plastic bit.
Step 4: Final
Congratulations, you have your own loose cable fastener (CRD (Cable Retention Device), whatever you want to call that).
I am very happy with the results. Right now I am using it and cable stays in place!
Hope this helps other people who suffers from loose laptop power cable like me :)
