I also use them on my night stand to keep my cell phone charger on top of the stand, and also use one to help secure the plug to the wall, my cat likes to play with cables. ( and i've had dead phones because of him pulling the plug out of the walls while playing with the cables )

You could use one of these

You can't solder one of those onto a cable and have a housing for it. That and even trying to solder that to a cable would be incredibly difficult.

Could easily do so with a piece of breadboard. I've done tons of projects like that.

What you're suggesting isn't making a cable that can be swapped then. You're suggesting bridging the Filco Molex connector to a standard USB header, mounting it in the case, and cutting the case so that the cable can plug into that connector without the case blocking the header. It's doable, but we were discussing much simpler fixes for it.

from my understanding, what he wanted was a header or something similar installed so he could use the same cable from his poker 2 on this keyboard. I offered a relatively easy solution to accomplish just that. my apologies for adding my two cents on what seemed to be a public discussion.

I might just end up doing a 6ft one with black paracord, how do you coil a cable though? I just love coiled cables. Coiled or not though, what would the supplies for a 6ft filco cable with black paracord cost?

What I had originally suggested was something like jokriks filco, but I think this is the one with the micro usb break away.

What I had originally suggested was something like jokriks filco, but I think this is the one with the micro usb break away.

Coiling cables is a massive PITA. You have to coil the cable around something like a piece of pipe, heat it with a heat gun/paint stripper, and quench it. You may have to coil it, put the paracord on, and repeat the process to get a tighter coil.

If you buy all the parts from it independently, it can easily get up to $30-40 since you'll be dropping $5-10 for each of the three the connectors, ~$1-2 + shipping for the Molex parts for the Filco side, $3.50-5 for the paracord (which is really finnicky and may be too small for some USB cables), however much for a donor cable or two, heatshrink cost, and so on. If you hit someone up like myself, Mimic, paranoid, etc. who has all the parts already, you should be able to do it for $5-10 plus your sleeving.

If there is enough room somewhere why not go with something from Neutrik; like the options below:
http://www.focusattack.com/cable-connectors/
That's what the custom arcade stick community does, they are quite impressive in durability and versatility. They also make smaller ones, with different interfaces.

Edit:
Or if you wanted to keep things very familiar:

I've used those connectors before. very nice quality, though I don't think they would fit well on the back of a filco. not really sure off the top of my head.
