If you want to secure the cable you are probably making a small knot where the cables connect to keep the cable connected if someone tugs it.

This tip shows you how to both secure the cable against accidental tugging and keep your cable intact for future use.
The secret make a simple knot under the connection and this knot does not involve the weak part of the cable.
