DIY: Lock the Firewire connector
I was surfing some VJ related sites when I came across a few DIY projects that I really liked. The one I fell for instantly was the securing of the Firewire 800 connector to an ethernet cable. I bought some nylon cable ties today and pulled the connectors together. I secured it with some tape too, just in case. Now the connector pair slides in to the port and the ethernet connector snap locks into it’s port so that the Firewire cable can’t be pulled out.
Read the original story and see the other projects in this Skynoise post. I love the velcro idea too, even if it isn’t that pretty. Btw, we’re planning to have more DIY related posts here in the near future.
