How to repair a fiber optic cable in just two minutes.
Here’s how to fix a fiber optical cable in two minutes, or less.
It’s not a big deal.
There’s nothing to lose and it’s a very simple process.
You can start by disconnecting the end of the cable and gently pulling it off.
The first step is to check the fiber optic fiber strands that are attached to the cable.
If they’re holding up, you’re done.
Remove the cable from the cable splitter and you’re ready to go.
Step two is to attach the cable to the splitter with a simple cable wrench.
This is the easiest and safest way to repair the cable because you don’t have to be a cable wrench expert to do it.
Now that you’ve disconnected the cable, it’s time to attach it to the new splitter.
I like to hold the cable up by its cable tie (which is the little loop that runs through the middle of the splider).
Pull it tight enough that the cable won’t slip off.
Now, the next step is making sure you have enough slack in the cable tie.
Use a wire saw to cut the tie into the cable (you can also use a pair of pliers).
This will make sure that you have the cable tied in the correct position, and that the slack isn’t coming loose.
Make sure that the cord is in its proper place before continuing.
And lastly, attach the splicer to the fiber cable splider.
When you’re finished, you’ll have a new splicer cable!
And here’s a look at the splicing process, along with a video tutorial.
