You need an able cable!

The DAGR-to-DC power cable, NSN 6150-01-521-6757, is takin' a lickin' and it's not still tickin'.

This GP5 power cable is breaking and the pins inside the threaded connector are shearing because soldiers are hanging equipment on it.

Stop doin' that!

Cables are not clothes lines or a place to hang equipment out of your way. It may seem like a good idea, but that's stinkin' thinkin'.

Resist the urge to hang anything on any cables in your vehicle. That includes FBCB2, GPS, SINCGARS, EPLRS, and any other acronymed equipment that shows and glows or squawks and talks.
