Step 1: What You Need

Here is what you need

-a pen

-jewelry gripper

-the cable you want to protect

Step 2: The Twist

Get the twist out of the pen

Step 3: Bend the Twist

Use the jewelry gripper to bend the twist on one end so that it´s open. (picture 1)

Now pitch the twist around the cable (picture 2-4).

When everything is around the cable, bend the beginning that it won´t slip away. (picture 5) This takes some time and adjustments.

If it won´t work at all you can use hot glue. (picture 6)

Step 4: The Anti Cable Break Protector

That´s what it should look like now.

There you go - a anti cable break protector!
