Quick Question

I'm putting in a new cable.

Do I stick it in the MARVEL hole or just let it dangle underneath?

I don't think it matters. It might have less chance of damage if you bring it through the hole. But put something around the edge to protect it from rubbing.


May you have at least one sunny day, and a soft chair to sit in..

I'd let it dangle. There's less chance of it chafing or being pinched that way.

If you run it through the hole put in a rubber grommet to prevent chaffing.
