3D-printed Microsoft Surface Pro 6 cable strain relief

Surface Pro 6 charging cable with 3D printed strain relief

The charging / multi-port cable for my Surface Pro 6 has rather a flimsy cable, and I am slightly worried about it breaking. (I'm not hugely worried, and replacements are not too expensive, but anyway...)

Someone else had the same concern, and they've made a 3d-printable strain relief thing.

It printed easily, and looks like a bug from the Matrix.

(Sorry for the quality for the photos — taking photos of matte black resin doesn't work too well.)

FWIW, the cable on the Surface Dock adapter is much chunkier, and I don't have the same concern.
