    Question Help me repair this

    I have a cable that needs repaired and still be waterproof at 10 atmospheres (300' fer us mericans).

    The outer shell is cracked and showing the internal wires. The wires are still functional but there is no way to slide any type of shrink tubing over the ends. This is not life support equipment if you are concerned but rather headphone cable.

    Can I just cover it with 5200 marine adhesive and wrap it with tape? I am not enough of an electroinc whiz to shorten the cable or any of that stuff.

    It works just fine right now above water but I know it will flood without some kind of repair. it is right next to the gland on the case.

    These depth rated headphones are more rare than rocking horse crap. Even if I could find them, it is beyond my experience level to be trying to change them out.

    Consider Gorrila tape.

    Just a thought:

    Clean EVERYTHING scrupulously.

    Slather any bare wires in liquid electrical tape & let cure.

    Slather the slathering w/ afore mentioned 5200 & let cure again.

    Wrap the cured & cured again slathered slathering in that stretch & seal self sealing self welding seal tape.

    Promise you won't blame me when entire mess eventually leaks anyway .

    You could try to do something like connecting cables in the ground.Cut some small tube open , pore the filler stuff in there and remove after a day.

    Re: Help me repair this

    AFAIK, Rescue tape is the only thing that'll work: http://www.amazon.com/exec/obidos/AS...d-20&ref=nosim

    We used that stuff to repair my fisher cable that was pinched on the metal body of the rEvo and it held. The silicon fuses with itself and is rated to 950PSI of internal pressure. Should be good to go if you can make it work with thin headphone cables.

    You're welcome.

    It has been a while since I have used it, but three M makes a two part goop that is used to pot wire connections like video cable. It may be a larger joint but it is operational to 800 feet.
