The Lil' Tugger is a cable strain relief gadget that has a number of uses but the main one is in protecting sockets from being damaged when a cable is accidentally ripped out.
Note: I've improved my design and added it to a new thing here:-
Twice now I’ve had my camera monitor fall off the hot shoe adapter. Once was after a bit of camera movement but the second was when I accidentally hooked the HDMI cable and yanked it off. I’m not too concerned about the monitor but both times it ripped out the micro HDMI plug on my Sony with some considerable force. Fortunately the HDMI socket on my camera handled the extreme handling without causing any permanent damage.
I tried Jerkstoppers but they were a pain to use... that's when I decided to build a better cable strain relief and I came up with my design called Lil’ Tuggers.
I've put together a short youtube video showcasing them here:-
The Lil' Tugger is for protecting sockets by attaching to cables sized around hdmi or USB cables. There are two other sizes that can also be found here:-
Regular Tugger can be found here:-
Big Tugger can be found here:-
