Attach the Custom Boards Safety Strap by feeding it around the cable snake's taped area, and around itself in a simple loop. Secure the loop with a cable tie. Cut off the surplus cable tie right next to the tie’s lock. Don’t leave any sharp edges.
We supply a second cable tie alongside our Safety Strap, in case you don’t succeed during the first pass, or if you ever have to open the amp-facing side of your loop to allow for changes in your amp configuration, or the amp’s height.
Attaching the cable snake to the Amp or cabinet
To finish the cable snake’s amp-facing end, roll back enough of the cable sock for your AC cable to reach the floor, and for all other cables to get to their connectors without any strain or pull on any of the connectors.
If possible, leave the sock slightly loose around the cables – it will make rolling up the snake much easier. Additionally, this will also add more protection to the cables inside the snake, as the sock’s own movement will help dissipate some of the pressure put on the snake.
