update: no heat method didn't really stick as well as i liked. onto boiling.

update: boiling for 60 seconds keeps them tight. no surprise! much better.

@dualhammers most of the things I read suggested boiling them or using a heat gun lol. So this sun method seems less aggressive 😅 I'm sure it's not good for the cables but it's (hopefully) a one time thing 🤞

I think this is pretty standard. Most cables have a few layers of shielding between the wire and the outer thermal plastic.

@metasyn really curious how this turned out, that would really improve my wire mess haha

@metasyn Are the cables the ones that yours came with? I tied to find replacement l cables and turns out it's hard!

@metasyn I have an ergodox EZ but lost the TRRS cable the connects the two sides. I ended up getting one from monoprice, but it's a bit flimsy and doesn't have the 90o connectors

@metasyn Oh I already got one that works well enough, but thank you
