DIY Extension Cord for Rift

Hi all

Just wanted to share a little life-hack if you are using extension cords for your rift
I bought a 10 foot HDMI and a 10 foot USB 3.0 cable for extending my Rift, but the cables continued curling up all the time in my play area!
So I tied em up using Plastic Wrap. Very effective!

Happy new year! 🙂

I just used black electrical tape every few inches.  Also both the female used and hdmi are taped together. Looks good and work good too.

Also thought of that, but my electrical tape is "gone bad" so it sticks on both sides now :wink:

Lmao

In that case I really commend a black marker and a lot of time. Cos your extention looks funky.

Or carry out  the theme and wrap you full rift cord with it also 😉

I used some black zip ties about every 12 inches.  Works fine for me.

If you measured 12 inches using a part of your anatomy and used 16 zip ties for a 3 foot extention, then you may need to invest in a ruler to avoid misrepresentation claims in the future 😉
