Strip one wire more than the other and crimp it on top.



Cut the end of the sleeve diagonally to make it taper.



Push two tapered sleeves together onto both wires.



Long piece of shrink over both.



Heat the shrink longer than normal, this takes practice. Remove heatshrink.



Push into the connector while still warm.

Has anyone got an alternative to sewing their cables together? I have seen people use clips but I can't find ones that can support 5 sleeved SATA Power cables? There is always cable ties but they bunches them together frown.gif

Any ideas?

You can use 4 zip ties and put them together in a rectangle shape. It will hold the wires without bunching them up too much.

can you post a pic of what you mean? Because to me, if 1 zip will bunch them so will 4?

I don't have zip ties on me, hope this helps. Connect the zip ties like this and tighten them just enough so the wires don't move.

Very thorough explanation, thanks! But I guess the insulation on these last wires I bought is thicker than normal, all the cables that I have collected from PC components are way thinner :-/, I should try using some of those then with your sleeving instruction wink.gif

The execution was great, but ultimately it still looks bad. The connector is made for one wire per socket.

I know what you mean, but I felt in this situation it looked better than the heatshrink-over-solder method.

That looks nice actually! Just splice around the area of the cable that's going to be hidden from sight. I mean, if you splice them that close, it slightly defeats the purpose, but again it doesn't look bad. smile.gif

No place to hide anything in that build. You can see both ends of the cable in that picture (GPU left, PSU right), so the splice is in the middle smile.gif
