stay n play broken cable

A month or so ago, the cable broke on my stay n play.

It broke right where it exits the attachment.
The attachment is a simple screw down cable stop. it screws to the firewal, loop the cable thru twice, and tighten the screw. Due to the design, the cable pulls out at a 90 degree angle.
To me, it was just a matter of time before failure.
To them, "this has never happened before, u must have attached it wrong"
And the charged me to replace the cable. (Note I purchased it used.

My new design is not going to break. Ever.

I have the wireless version and no problem in 7 yrs/70K. I just moved it from a Susuki to our newer Jeep Liberty.

Mine has a plastic tube over the cable where the screw tightens. If yours did not, maybe that caused caused it to fray and break.

Your new install looks like it will last a very long time.
