Here is the new one I was talking about warning I haven't tried it yet
but it seams like a good idea.
you will see at the bottom of the page the special endings they use.
The down side is the endings are more expensive but 1 bulk pack is
probably more than you will ever use.
The way I always handle the sequence is to compare it to a pre-made
cable I never remember the sequence off the top of my head. Remember
the sequence is different on each side.
