you can melt both paracord or mdpc sleeving without heat shrink on the female connector, but you will need heat shrink for the for the male side. believe me, i tried, and it does not hold well.

The heatshrink is what actually forces the sleeve strands to melt to eachother. If you just hold the lighter to the sleeve, each little plastic strand will melt and burn back individually, and it will never actually fuse together. It basically frays. The heatshrink is what makes it bond, and holds it in place while you're melting it. It takes quite a while for the sleeve to actually melt together.

I've only done this with plastic MDPC sleeve, mind you, but I imagine paracord behaves similarly.

Paracord acts completely different. You can melt the strands together into the pin and form it with your fingers there is 0 heatshrink needed

Have been working myself of a way to have the sleeve appear continuous through these pass-through connectors. This was my first attempt, couple months ago, but it didn't come out so well as I hoped, and the 12V line came loose. Tried all kinds of things since then, with different sizes of wire and different ways of melting the sleeve onto the wire.

Any plastic type will start fraying, if you get on it really quick (or have calloused finger tips like I do you can make it work) but honestly the heatshrink creates a weld that is perfect for plastic type sleeving.

But you should not need it for paracord as its a multifilament sleeving and will just melt together.

I love the fact that people are getting this down. I have always loved the HS look on the sata power cables, but anyone who has ever done it knows how much work goes into doing it.

I wanted to do a video on it, however I dont like doing a video where you have to say results might vary lol.

Good job to everyone showing off the awesome sleeve work.

Wisk, would you mind making a picture tut or video tut? Send me a PM and I can at least get you started in the right direction with supplies and such as I know what works, just no time to make the tut right now.

I'm not quite there yet. I need to find a repeatable consistant method that does not depend on: having to measure sleeve exactly; how strong your super glue is; how hot your lighter burns; etc.
