I remember buying/seeing a Boss daisychain years ago, and it came with lil' plastic covers for any unused connectors you're not using, so you can prevent the PSU shorting-out on something.

WHAT THE HELL ARE THESE CALLED?! I'm sick of using electrical tapeeeeee

I'm sure at least one of my daisy chains came with plastic caps. I'll take a look later and see if I can work out which one it was. Might just be quicker/cheaper/easier to buy a spare cable that comes with caps?

I've used tape in the past. Bit messy, but it works.

Euan doesn't wear johnnies. Statistically speaking he's more likely to get an STD walking to the shops than he is getting the ride.
