Don't pull on the wire. Push on the wire from the front w/ a small hex key. That way you don't risk ripping out the cable.

Is that SATA sleeve? I found that the SATA stuff was slightly too large for the Pro-Slims. I'll be using some of the USB sized stuff Nils use to sell on mine.

He still sells it, but only in black.

Yep..this is SATA sleeve. MDPC-X Red (the lighting was bad in the shop when I took this last night.) I found that if I really stretched it well, it worked great for me. thumb.gif I wouldn't mind trying the USB sleeve though...biggrin.gif

I used the MDPC-x orange sata sleeve for my sata cables and really liked it. I also used it when I sleeved my PSU power cable and it worked really well on that too. I just wish all that sleeve wasn't so expensive.

Got it, thanks for the tip! I think I have a couple of hex keys at home... thumb.gif

TUTORIAL: How to create custom sleeved SATA cables using Akasa Proslim Cables

Proslim cables are available in 50, 30, and 15cm lengths. I like to use the 50cm cables for the simple reason that I now have a stockpile of SATA wire that I can use to make new cables whenever I need to.



Stock vs. sleeved (and shortened)



One one end of the cable, gently push the metal retaining clip to the side so it slides out from under the plastic tab holding it. Next do the other side and then gently bend the retaining clip out about a quart of an inch.



The connector is simply a compression style fitting and can easily be pried apart. I do it by slipping and x-acto knife under the side opposite the retaining clip and gently pushing it up. After that, I'll slip the knife from the cable side into the actual side of the connector to loosen it up on each side. After that, the connector will come apart easily.



As you can see, the connector just has little blades that push into the ribbon wire to make the connection with the wire



Once the connector has been pried apart, this is what you will have. Go ahead and gently pull the wire out.



Trim cable to desired length. Place the smaller piece from the connector in place and make a pencil mark where the wire meets the connector. This will be your sleeve cutting mark. Once you have marked the cable, remove the small piece of the connector.



In this particular example, I am using MDPC-X Red SATA sleeving



Cut the sleeve to the desired length, I like to run it all the way to the connector.



Place the heat shrink over the sleeving



On both ends of the cable (At this time you can also reassemble the connector on the other end. I use a pair of needle nose pliers to compress the connector back into place)



Place a small dab of superglue on each side of the wire on one end. Slide the sleeving over it and holding the shrink, tighten your grip on the sleeve until the superglue holds the sleeve in place. At this point you can also shrink the heatshrink.



Repeat on the other end



This method also works really well with the Lutro0 Customs Teleios SATA sleeving as well



A stock cable, a shorter one, and the two I made for this tutorial.

I have found those to be really finicky once you modify them. It's hard to get the contacts secure and positioning has to be right so that they work.

All of mine have always worked...Just have to be careful how you crimp the two sides of the connector back into place.
