Tips&Tricks: Don't loose your Binguard short black cable

How to avoid losing the short black cable

It may happen that users  forget to lock the cable into the padlock on bin collection day. This may result in the short, black cable (the one that clicks into the yellow gravity lock) ending up in the refuse collection truck.
Here is a simple, yet effective solution!

Attach the cable tie, supplied with the Binguard unit, through the short cable’s eye (loop) and around the long cable (the cable which is attached to the bin’s back hinge, with the padlock on the other end). See image above. In doing so, the short cable cannot slide down over the long cable eye.
