Great DIY tip for Charging Cords

This is the current state of the charger for my MacBook Air. It's a design flaw the Apple people really should address. I found a DIY tip on Pinterest that might have saved the cord if I had wrapped a spring from a ball point pen around the stress point when it was new. Next time, definitely.

I just made this one for my iPad charger.

White Lace...I just did this for my iPad charger. Was tricky getting it started. Had to stretch and bend the starting point. Luckily I have wire snips because I had to cut off the tight part of the spiral at the end. But it worked beautifully. Yay.
