Power plug protection

Post by helder » 03 May 2008, 16:26

Hi,

This is really important! ;-)

Bubba may be small but it's still a server, so I think it would be important to have something to secure the power plug in place on the Bubba side (I had 238 days up time, and then, while dusting my desk -- cabumm!).

My solution was to glue the power plug to Bubba, not very nice...

I second that.

had a similar experience.
so i tightly coupled power cable would be nice.

how did you glue the power plug to the bubba?

Sorry for the late reply!

Answering your question, I've just poured glue over the plug! Not too much. Then I let it dry, and then repeated the process until it was secured. I've used universal glue, probably not the best option. I suppose it's a good idea not to use conductive glue...

Silicone Sealant, the type used for sealing Baths and Showers may be a good idea.
Give you enough grip but will snap off if you pull hard enough.
