How long does it take to make my custom cable?

    All custom cables are made and shipped within 2-3 weeks from ordering. This may take longer in busy periods (in these cases you will be notified).

    What are your cables made from?

      Our cables are made using:
      Paracord - This is the nylon sleeving we use to go over the cable.
      Techflex - The PET sleeving we put over the paracord and cable.
      Connector - This is put between the device and host sides of the cable as a detachable connector. Our connectors come in a variety of colours simply for aesthetic purposes.
      Heatshrink - This is added to the USB connectors and some of our detachable connectors to help with durability.
      Please note: cables created with multicolour/custom-dyed cord may have differences from example images as a result of:
      1. The cut of the cord used - the colour placement may differ slightly.
      2. The cable being created from a different dye batch - the colours may be slightly different as no two dyed cord batches are the same.

      What is the difference between a device end and a host end?

        The device end of the cable (with or without the coil) plugs into your keyboard.
        The host end of the cable plugs into your PC.

        What size should I choose for the device and host cable length?

        The host cable needs to be long enough to run from your PC, to the device half of the cable.
        The device end of the cable (with or without the coil), is purely for cosmetic purposes, so choose the size you think would look awesome!


        Please note: Some cable lengths available in our custom design sections exceed our recommendation. These have a little pop-up to notify you of this, as RGB heavy keyboards such as Drop ALT/CTRL are notoriously known for having a high energy draw. Choosing these cable lengths may cause connectivity issues with such boards.
        We rigorously test all cables prior to shipping to make sure they are fully functional, therefore we are not liable for any connectivity issues that may happen with such boards upon arrival. Please take this into consideration before purchasing one of our cables.
