You should only connect it on the source side.

Thanks so much PXSS.

One side is appropriate.

Where would I find some kind of "connecting block", or whatever that may be called, to keep two interconnect cables together in a pair, like in this picture. Is there anywhere that sells something like that?

Why wouldnt you just use velco cable ties, sprial wire wrap, twist ties, or anything else out there more common?!

Sure. I'll take your suggestion and use twist ties. That would just be amazing!

I like the look to be honest. Don't know where they're sold but I don't think they would be too hard to make. DIY FTW! ;-)

I would prefer a metal one, I really just want to know if there are any nice options available for something similar to that.

I'm interested in this too. I'm particularly looking for a y splitter similar to the viablue one. Has anyone seen where I can get one? I know double helix cables is getting one in but it isn't available yet.

Precisely!!!

This is a thread in the DIY section after all.

If you take the I & the Y away, all you're left with is the D.
