Will I be able to sleeve this?

post #1 of 11
Thread Starter 
hi.
i'm a n00b at sleeving.
i don't want to sleeve everything i have, but i do want to sleeve cables in the picture (from the keyboard to behind the monitor)

is it possible to do it since the USB port is bigger than both of the cables?

Yes, I have mine sleeved. The sleeving stretches when you compress it, you'll see what I mean.

Maybe. You are going to have to open your keyboard up. The cables might either be soldered directly to the PCB or removable with a plug.

If it's removable then it will be a lot easier. Either way you can. It's just up to you whether or not you want desolder and then solder the cable back on.

This, soldering is fairly easy thou if you have a soldering iron and a little bit of patience

Most sleeving expands to around 3-4 times it's natural size; so you should be able to do it just fine. 1/4" may work, but 3/8" certainly will. In terms of the heatshrink, 1/2" may be a little too tight, but 3/4" (or if you can fin 5/8") would certainly work.

Heatshrink can also be stretched. Use a pair of pliers and gently pull it in the opposite direction, not too much as you can tear the heatshrink.
