    Default Best way to permanently repair a PSU Sheaf?

    We've got loads of electrical genius' on here (you know who you are) and I was wondering whats the best way to repair the end of a wire near the plug that has a sheaf.

    I've replaced the other end plenty of times when the wires get messed up, but at the other end, this particular plug is sealed.
    I don't really want to just use electrical tape, but was wondering something like a Shrink Flex. I want to make it more a permanent repair rather than a quick fix (a exact replacement for this adapter is £22 - and seems a shame to ditch it as it works perfectly).

    I personally would use some shrink wrap, Used to use it all the time when making up battery packs for my RC cars

    This should do you [Only registered and activated users can see links. ]

    I don't have any left at home or I would stick some in the post, the last pack I did barely covered the ends of the batteries

    Thats the stuff! Whenever someone mentions shrink wrap, I always think of the large clingfilm type used in Warehouses!

    Why does "fat chance" and "slim chance" mean
    the same thing?

    Heat shrink tubing is good but you need to get it over the other end yet be small enough to shrink to the wire. I like [Only registered and activated users can see links. ] for applications where conventional materials won't work.
