Step 16: Modified camera controller

This project will make the camera controller completely tangle free. making easier to document the next project. To open a controller remove any screws on its body, then figure out were the plastic tabs are (inside) that hold the two halves together. To find the tabs you may have to pry a little, but avoid this till the controller has been throughly inspected. Opening up a controller is different depending each model, most have their tabs on the longest side.
Power protection is also very important for the computer. And safeguard the health of all of your devices with a surge protector you can trust. We carry a range of products that will suit your needs. Because they can't intercept all surges when Power fluctuations, it's best to use a whole-house protector in conjunction with point-of-use protectors.<br> <a href="http://www.thebestsurgeprotector.com/category/belkin/" rel="nofollow">Visit my blog</a>
Excellent idea! <br> <br>I came across your guide while searching for methods to re-enforce my laptop power cable and connector. I am going to implement your method in my project along with something to protect the cable from damage if it is squished (trapping the cable under the corner of the coffee table when i slide it over the floor for example) along with a nylon wrap using some pretty coloured paracord! <br> <br>What ya think? :)
Sounds legit. Paracord is going to look good.
Good instructable.<br /> <br /> I can usually find a cheap Velcro alternative after the yule holidays, about $0.50 for 10 feet, 2 sided strap. I will sew a loop onto one end of this and put the cord through the loop. The strap will stay on the cord and not get lost.<br /> <br /> Another idea is to always &quot;Fake&quot; your cords, never spin them into a loop, but make a figure 8 between your thumb and little finger. This prevents twisting of the cable and reduces the chance of tangles when you release the loop. (You can also do this with longer/thicker cords between your elbow and hand.)<br />
I think there is another powersquid by phillips for European outlets.
I like this instructable, but why are the main pics black and white?
maybe he only had access to a black & white digital camera at the time
It's a good idea to organize my cables, Good job!!!
Great tips &amp; tricks! Lots of useful stuff.<br/><br/>Just a word of warning, though: I strongly discourage wrapping an extension cord (or any other longish cable) around your arm. It's quick and easy, but it makes your cord <em>very</em> twisty and kinky in no time. <a rel="nofollow" href="http://www.animatedknots.com/coiling/index.php?LogoImage=LogoGrog.jpg&Website=www.animatedknots.com">Mastering good coiling technique</a> will save a lot of time and mess in the long run, and help your cords last longer as well.<br/><br/>
Great ideas! One consideration is the method to coil the wires. I'd suggest a common boating coil called a &quot;Gasket Coil,&quot; which will let the coils lie flat and eliminate the nasty kinks that are common in cords (don't put the loops around the coil, use wire wraps instead).<br/><br/>--Mark<br/><br/><a rel="nofollow" href="http://www.marksatterfield.com">http://www.marksatterfield.com</a><br/><br/>
Very thorough. This should sort out my cable troubles. One critisism though, bigger yellow picture boxes. Hard to mouse over teeny weenie boxes. One bump and the paragraph is removed in mid sentance.
Good work and very detailed. A note of caution when coiling 110V or 240V colds that are in use. Don't coil the cord to small, especially if it is a high current device. Tight coils can have an inductive effect and cause heat. In some cases causing a fire.
