Tether plastic caps to Apple's laptop plugs
Authored by: deeranp on Jul 30, '06 06:18:33PM
I've done this as well, but using fishing line (looks neater). Heating the pin over a flame makes it easier to poke the hole into the plastic cap. I did this way back in 2002 on my first iBook and have done this for friends and family since. It prevents the tip of the power connector being damaged and breaking off inside your notebook. See http://cultofmac.com/?p=160 for what could happen if you don't.
