The Ugly Truth About Repairing with Cord-Fix

Cord-Fix acts like scar tissue to make repairs that are strong and durable.

The ugly truth is that Cord-Fix repairs are, well, ugly.

There, I said it.

Cord-Fix is my baby, and it does the job better than anything else on the market. Cord-Fix not only repairs your fraying charger cables and USB cords, but it can keep them working long beyond their expected life span. That’s good for your wallet, and it’s good for the earth, because it keeps cables in use, rather than in the garbage.

But even I must admit that the repairs that are made with Cord-Fix are not beautiful. Honestly, that’s why I haven’t published a lot of post-repair pictures. Cord-Fix leaves bumps. It cures somewhat translucent to milky-ish, depending on how many coats are used for a repair. The wires are sometimes still visible beneath the repair.

Personally, I like to think of the breaks and frays as flesh wounds in the cable, from the daily pounding that our personal electronics get from us. Cord-Fix is like scar tissue! You just brush it onto the cable’s “wound” and it gets a layer of healing scar tissue. Cord-Fix literally becomes new plastic “tissue” that fills in where the old covering has broken away.

Since scars can be beautiful, maybe it’s time for me to embrace the scarring that my battle-worn cables have gotten. In that spirit, here is a photo of my oldest Cord-Fix repair. This is a generic lightening cable that I use nightly by my bedside. Without Cord-Fix, it would have been tossed long ago. Instead, it keeps me charged and ready to go, night after night. It’s not frayed. It’s fabulous!
