Make a Connector Body

Introduction: Make a Connector Body

About: I also go by the Instructable user name: UnknownUser2007

Here is a quick way to make a connector body.

Use a pen cap and saw it in half. Then fill both halves with hot glue and enclose them around the connector. Makes a great connector body that helps keep the strain away from the solder joints.

This technique can also be used for a cable splice. Use a pen body instead of a cap.
