Lava Cables

Lava Cables are pretty nice, however the product lacks proper documentation that clearly illustrates how to assemble them.  Here are a few pictures that show the key steps.

Be sure to carefully unwrap your Lava plug from the plastic shipping bag.  Some of the components for the plug are small and can hide themselves in the plug.  If you're not careful, you can lose one of the pieces required to assemble the plug.  Also, make sure you wait for the tip to cool down once you have soldered it.  If the tip is too warm the insulator will melt and not pass over it. 

It took a few days to completely convert my entire board to Lava cables, but I'm glad I did.  The end result is a clean manageable board that sounds great.
