550 Paracord won't fit over "fatter" shielded USB cables

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
anyone have any trouble with paracord and the "fatter" shielded cables? I picked up a 100" of 550 paracord off amazon a few weeks ago and finally got around to sleeving my keyboard cable. i soon found out it was slightly too small. i picked up an older unshielded cable (i'm assuming its a bit thinner) and it slid on fine. i know paracord can vary in size a bit. i was just wonder if anyone else had this problem.

paracord does vary in size. PM me for a source that will most likely fit over your fatter cable.

Sadly there is no exact standard for size only weight tolerance. But most hang around the same sizes.
