View Full Version : Sleeving question

07-31-2008, 12:20 PM
I bought the black sleeving kit from petra, I started on my ATX connector and it seems a bit see through and also a bit too big. The smallest sleeve is 1/8th in the kit. Here is a pic of it on one wire.


What diameter sleeve you guys using on the ATX connector? What brand?

1/8 is way too small. As you can see the cable through it. I use 1/4in TechFlex. BTW this is definitely the wrong forum for this.

lol my bad, I had one too many windows open, can someone move this post up one? 1/4 would be huge for single wires, i was thinking smaller.

The smaller the sleeve, the more it has to expand to fit the wires. The more it expands, the easier it to see through it. Now, in that pic, pull the sleeving as tight as you can, and you won't see the wire underneath. Look close to heat shrink on the right. You can't see through it, that's because you haven't expanded that part.

And you'll have to send a pm to a mod to move it. Unless they happen by.
