  3. As shown, pass the tie through the clip hole. Next, turn the tie and pass it through the head so that the USB cable can pass through the center of the tie loop. The clip is now attached to the USB cable.
    • Check the direction of the head beforehand. Make sure the USB cable is through the center of the tie loop and that the tie can pass through the head.

    • You can substitute the tie provided with PFXZCCLUSA or PFXYP6CLUSC, or other commercially available ties with a width of 4.8 mm (0.19 in) and thickness of 1.3 mm (0.05 in).
