Step 1: Attach Tubing to Wire

Use a velcro strap to attach the tubing to the charger wire.

It should be about 8 inches from the charger for strain relief.

Step 2: Wrap the Cord

Spread your fingers apart and gently wrap the charger cord around them.

Close your fingers and slide the wrapped cord off your hand.

Step 3: Neat and Safe

Wrap the velcro around the wire to keep it from tangling.

Bend the tube and press it over the charger prongs.

The tubing will keep your gear safe from the charger prongs.

    Thanks, it really keeps my charger from gouging up stuff when I toss it all in a bag. I probably got the idea for the tubing from some product that came shipped that way once.
