Your opinion before i add something to my stick

Here is my stick

i could add this thing here for my usb cable on the left side ( opposite of the front button)

Im only able to mount it from the outside of the box because the wood is too thick and i would look bad ( i made some test with wood). So the metal panel would be on the outside. (see picture of the inside) I found those thing after i finished the box

Should i do this or just do a little notch in the middle and leave the cable hanging?

no one?

I’d say keep it simple and make a hole to stick the wire through

nice stick btw


#4

I would agree. Just remember to make sure its pull proof… like if someone yanks the cable, it’ll come out of the console, not your stick.


#5

well yeah i think you guys are right. Adding this metal usb port would kill the look of the stick


#6

i mounted mine on the outside and it isn’t bad

and it provides protection against cord yanking

if you want you can always reverse mount it from the inside

not_simple_si’s awesome stick (love my custom stick thread, pg444) has it mounted on the outside and it doesn’t look bad at all.
