This Instructable will show you how to keep your cables from being accidentally mashed down while plugged in. I ruined a few laptop USB ports and this works great, especially on the go!
Plug in your USB cables. Yes, this trick will support both cables at once! Awesome!
Take an ordinary bottle cap and make sure that it is not warped from a less than gentle bottle opening. You can press it down on a hard flat surface to get it nice and flat.
This will prevent accidental damage to your laptop USB ports! Happy hacking!
