Step 1: Prepare Your Cable

Make sure your cable is clean and stripped from any former tapes etc. The surface should be as clean as possible.

Step 2: Mold the Shape

My cable was was broken on two different parts. One part near the charger itself. Since the cable was really broken the sugru needed to hold it in shape in a certain angle there. After that you can create the shape you want. i went with 2 plaster styled parts. For the top part i added sugru all around it. To make sure it won't get any more damaged.

Step 3: Add Water to Remove Irregularities

Using a little bit of soap water on the sugru allows you to give it a smooth surface. That's it!

    Nice fix! Also I think the sugru adds some nice color to some very bland cables. Thanks for sharing!
