Ever have a lan cable where the plastic lock mechanism is broken off and it periodically wiggles free? I have a solution for you. I was designing a 3D printed fix when I noticed a paper clip in front of me. =) Problem solved.
Teachers! Did you use this instructable in your classroom?
Add a Teacher Note to share how you incorporated it into your lesson.
Step 1: Attach the Paper Clip to the Cable.
The slide on quite easily. I do not have the size of the clips, but you will know when you have some that fit. If you had the plastic coated ones they would protect the cable from wear as well.
Step 2: Pick Your Attachment Strap
I have a ton of these tiny cords and they worked super slick. I also attached one with rubber bands which was more difficult, but worked fine. Free is always one of my favorite fixes. =)
Simple as that, cable fixed.
