How to avoid the cable to twist and get shorter?


Recommended Posts


This is the primary reason we created the Vive Wireless Adapter, the only real way to get over the limitation of the tether is to eliminate it. 


There are a couple of things you can try:

  • The Turnsignal Overlay
  • Using some sort of overhead cable management system (clunky but very effective in some implementations)
  • Using something like a split-loom cable sleeve to make the cable a bit stiffer
  • Ensuring that you're wrapping the tether up using the
     so it doesn't form "memory" and coil on you automatically.

Thanks. Somebody had mentioned that in a video production class once. I had no idea what they were talking about.


Over-under. I'm going to start trying that. I had been hanging my cables to avoid twisting problems, but as you probably know, that doesn't help if you have to keep bringing them places, thus wrapping them around something/themselves over and over again. My laptop power cord has a wavy twist thing going on.
