Step 1: Lost Plug

Everybody knows this problem:

You lost your Ethernet plug...and the cable slipping out constantly....???

Step 2: Zip Tie

Take a zip tie and cut it off (as you can see at the pics) .

It doesn't need to be a certain length....about 1-2 inches....

Step 3: Head

....then halve the head (of the height....)

Step 4: Plug In

...just put the zip tie on the plug and plug it in together....

Step 5: Ready

...ready !

To release the plug, push down the zip tie.

Pretty cool, huh ??? :-D

    Whoa! Good one! It's planned obsolescence thwarted! I'm sure the clip ends were designed for continuous purchases of wires / cables!

    Many thanks, you just saved me time I cannot put a price on and tons of aggravation.
