Learn how to fix a frayed phone charger and save it from the trash using Krazy Glue and a pair of tweezers.
My car’s phone charger cord has seen better days, and clearly has been rocking its job responsibilities to the max. It was completely frayed around the end and the wires inside were at risk of breaking, or worse, damaging my cell phone. I was seconds away from throwing it in the trash and venturing out to the phone store to get another when I had a genius idea…Krazy Glue.
I keep Krazy Glue on hand at all times for home repairs and craft projects, and I don’t know why I didn’t think of this phone charger repair hack sooner. But I’m happy to report that after a few weeks of using the fixed phone charger, the frayed ends are still stuck in place and the patch job totally worked! If your phone charger looks like mine, here’s how to fix it.
Supplies You Need To Fix A Frayed Phone Charger:
- Krazy Glue (All Purpose)
How To Fix A Phone Charger With Krazy Glue
Start by gently bending the plug part to expose the wires and gain access to the inside where the frayed edges are supposed to be.
Squirt in a little bit of Krazy Glue into that space. Be careful not to go overboard, because a little goes a long way.
Using a pair of tweezers, carefully push the frayed edges up into the connector space. Work your way around, making sure all the ends stay inside the connector, and try to be quick so the glue doesn’t dry.
Krazy Glue starts working in about 30 seconds, so you’ll need to be fast and efficient.
Once all the ends are pushed back inside, use the tweezers to gently squeeze around the edge of the cord beside the connector to lock it all in place.
Let the charger sit undisturbed for 24 hours, then it’s all set to use again! You can bend it, move it, and flex it, and it won’t budge. The Krazy Glue reinforces the connector even stronger than it was when you bought it!
