Cable wrapping how too

Here is a quick guide to cable wrapping, It is the one thing I get asked about all the time and it is really easy to do, especially oh the HD25 straight cables

If you need to know how to remove the cable click here

1) You are going to need to cover up the connectors to stop them from snagging the braided wrap

2) You can see here I have taped the lower connector to the cable

3) Chose your color. You will need some heat shrink tubing to terminate the ends

4) Start to feed the taped up connector into the sleeving. I do not pre cut the wrap as It changes length slightly as you wrap it


5) You will have to work the cable along by puckering it up and then grabbing the end through the sleeving.


6) If it starts to fatten up like this then just slide your fingers down the length of the cable and it will tighten up again.

7) When you have the same length of unwrapped cable as the distance from where the two parts of cable join the tip of the black connector it is time to cut the cable wrap
