    Default Cable Chain Covers

    Guys,
    Anybody know where I can buy new covers for my Cable Chain? I googled it but no spares came up.
    I broke a few of the covers when removing them and I just need to replace them.
    Don't really want to replace the whole chain just for a few covers.
    the size is 18 x 25 mm.

    Just buy a complete new chain and take the covers from that. It's fairly cheap to buy. 18mm X 25mm Open Type Flexible Black Plastic Cable Drag Chain 1M 3 3ft | eBay

    Just make sure it's the same type.

    I doubt you would have much luck buying the covers separately but could be wrong.

    I don't think a couple of missing covers will hurt. Just move the gaps to bits that end up straight.

    I think I have the same cable chain and if you are desperate I could put a couple in the post.

    Thanks Pippin. Its more than a couple, I'm afraid...I was a bit rough and they are quite fragile so its quite a few.
    I've ordered a new chain ( a bit bigger ) so when it arrives I'll swap it out.
    Thanks for the offer though!

    Bigger cable chain is better! This stuff is a bit small for more than a couple of cables.

    3d printer would have that solved in a jiffy.
    maybe someone locally would be able to help.

    Drawing it would take the time, but I haven't got access to a 3D printer anyway. Easier to just but a new wider chain.
    Probably would have had a go, if I had one though....

    Aint that the truth!

    Thats where most of ones time goes to.

    yeah a +1 on buying a wider chain if it will fit. Room to fit more stuff!!! Quick look over shoulder to make sure missus aint watching

    I will never be the person who has everything, not when someone keeps inventing so much cool new stuff to buy.

    From an early age my father taught me to wear welding gloves . "Its not to protect your hands son, its to put out the fire when u set yourself alight".
