My dear and fellow compatriots, I ask you for your aid! Recently I was attempting to create several more aesthetically pleasing usb cables, as suggested by a certain set of instructables. Now the problem I have come across: I have purchased several sets of laces at this point, however, each one of them have been incompatible with the video, either not having a removable core, not being hollow or being woven and thus being unraveling when cut.

Does anyone have an online source where I could purchase suitable laces? I will continue to search the net... but I fear ordering further unsuitable laces and wasting further the resources at my disposal.

Thank you! -_Q

Scorch the end lightly with a match when you cut it. It takes a little practice - and it won't work with natural fibers! - but that will keep it from unraveling.

Best of luck!

A few (hopefully helpful) points:


  • Based on my experience boot laces and trainer laces seem to be more likely to have the removeable cores than shoe laces.

  • If they are synthetic fibres then scorching the end will work, if they are natural fibres a little super-glue works.

  • Alternatively clocth covered USB cables are available in Poundland, I usually buy these cut the connector off and solder them into the device in place of the current cable.

  • Another alternative (which I have used as it works for various sizes of cable and even bundles of cables) is to wrap tapestry wool around the cable securing the ends with super-glue.
