I’m wiggin’ out over this. I don’t know how this could have happened either. My only guess is from wrapping the chord around the fight stick when I put it up, but even then that in itself doesn’t put very much strain on the base.
My only guess is secret mice or something came in my room and ate part of it, but I never have mice in my house so I doubt that. The metal wiring doesn’t appear to be damaged and only part of the rubber broke off. I’m hoping this is a simple electrical tape fix.
