You know sometimes we have destroyed our precious iPhone cable?
No More!

Step 1: What do you need?

1. IPhone cable
2. Simple Pen
I did this for my wife's iPhone charger. It worked great for several months but then the cord started to fray where the spring ended. Guess I need to find a longer spring.

Apple will replace the cable during your first year .... I've had mine replaced twice since Feb 2014 at the Apple store
<p>Here's a better solution than pen springs:</p><p><a href="http://www.icordrx.com/" rel="nofollow">http://www.icordrx.com/</a></p>
Best idea ever, you can save money doing this than buying a new lighting cable for $20! So happy :)
It's called a strain relief , it helps from fraying the cable Apple is notoriously known for this, good instrucable
Best idea ever, I've gone threw probabialy 15 iPhone cables because of shorted out ends!
This is great I always break my headphones at the jack and I will use this for them, thanks!
This is a good idea except that it could short out the connections and stuff upi your ipad or iphone. I have used sugru on mine for cable repairs.
omg thank you so much i am almost through my second cable this helped so much!
it works Thanks!
Nice and easy... :-)
Hi Ornevo, <br>This is a very good tip.Thank you very much for posting.I tried it out on my cables,works well.I guess you deserve a price.All the best.
thank's! :-)
I have been using sugru, but this solution is simpler and recycles junk ballpoint parts. Bravissimo.
This is a pretty cool trick
Thank you!
Awesome hack. Though it's not sync cables that die a horrible death, but headphones. Looking for a dead ballpoint pen now!
It help a lot if you never wrap it tightly. I just unplug them, make a loose bundle, and shove them in my pocket. I do have to take a few seconds to untangle them sometimes, but I've gotten really good at it as a result.
Good thought, but my problem can be summed up with one word. Doorknobs. I'll be listening to music or audiobook, and innocently walk by a doorknob and wham, the cable catches.
slip it between your shirt and your body <br>
That's the way I do it, &amp; my relationship with doorknobs has never gone sour.
Thanks so much! It's rescue my all cables!
Sometimes there are instructibles that just make you say...duh! <br> <br>Nice job!
Cool. Just cool! <br>simple and efficient! Like the idea and will incorporate it in other cables which often break... (I dont have an iPhone)
You sir are gentleman and a scholar. 10/10
genius! I can't wait to try it myself! 5/5
