Mouse Paracords

Possibly! If we have a 3D-printed stress relief designed and available to go with your specific mouse model, it will be listed in the “Paracord Installation” dropdown for our Mouse Paracords. Our Standard Mouse Paracords come with a Black 3D-printed stress relief, if available for your model, and you can choose a White or Black 3D-printed stress relief when ordering our Custom Mouse Paracords.

We do not currently offer 3D-printed stress relief on our Quick-Ship Mouse Paracords.

Generally, orders are fulfilled on a first come, first serve basis. However, to produce our cables faster, we do batch process mouse paracord orders separately from USB cable orders. Mouse cables are quicker to produce and may be shipped ahead of USB cable orders in the queue. If you are ordering a USB cable and Mouse paracord in one order, your order will be shipped together according to the longest processing time (USB cables). If you want to receive your mouse paracord before your USB cable then please place two orders, and we will fulfill the mouse paracord in the paracord line which moves quicker and is shorter.

We aim to get you your Dream Cable in the shortest processing time possible!

Of course! Every Dream Cable is plugged in and checked to be working properly immediately before shipping.

If there are any issues with your cable when it arrives, please let us know, and we will address it. We want your cable to be everything you dreamed!

Mouse/USB Paracords and USB cables have a 6-month warranty period. If your cable fails within the appropriate warranty period of your purchase, contact us, and we will have you ship your cable to us. After inspection, we will either repair or replace your cable and ship it back to you.

If we offer a custom option, then we also offer a Quick-Ship option!

Dream Cables’ Quick-Ship line, as it sounds, is intended to ship quickly and therefore get you your cables faster! Quick-Ship products are premade, offered in a limited color selection, and ship the next business day, Monday-Friday. Quick-Ship Mouse Paracords, Quick-Ship USB Paracords, and Quick-Ship Straight USB Cables, will ship the next business day when ordered by 4pm EST. Quick-Ship Coiled Cables will ship the next business day when ordered by 2pm EST.

All Custom Dream Cables and Paracords are processed within a week, or 5 business days, and allow you to choose all the details to go with your custom cable 🙂

NOTE: When ordering multiple products, please know that the processing time for your entire order will be based on the product in your order with the longest processing time listed.

Both our Mouse Paracords and our USB Paracords are made using 30awg ultra-flexible braided wiring inside of your choice of paracord.

Mouse Paracords come with a USB-A or USB-C to plug into your PC, laptop, or USB hub, with the appropriate JST connector on the opposite end for installation into your mouse. Mouse Paracords are for wired mice where the cable is not removable unless the mouse has been taken apart. We offer Mouse Paracords as a Quick-Ship with limited color options that ship next business day, as well as Custom Mouse Paracords with the standard USB-A end or our unique Custom USB-C Mouse Paracord option which uses a USB-C connector to plug into your PC, laptop, etc.

USB Paracords come with 2 separate standard USB connectors, one on each end of the paracord. You can choose between a USB-A or USB-C to plug into your PC, laptop, or USB hub, and then your second USB connector plugs into the front of your mouse. USB Paracords are intended for wireless mice or wired mice which use a removable cable that simply plugs into the front of the mouse. You can choose between our Quick-Ship USB Paracords, ready to ship the next business day with limited color combinations, or our Custom USB Paracords where you can choose your length, connectors, and all color options.

Our Standard Mouse Paracord comes in a 6-foot length. It comes with black heat shrink on both ends of the mouse cable, with the option of adding a black 3D-printed stress relief if listed for your mouse model.

Buying a Custom Mouse Paracord (or Custom USB-C Mouse Paracord) will allow you to choose the heat shrink color for the host USB-A (or USB-C) that plugs into your PC, the stress relief heat shrink color or 3D-printed stress relief color (depending on availability of 3D-printed stress relief for your mouse model), and your ideal cable length from 3 to 8 feet (0.9 to 2.4 meters).

Shipping & Returns

Each country or region has their own policy on customs fees for products imported into their country and we currently ship to over 120 countries. Some only charge when the value is 100s of dollars, some just do it on very large packages, while some will do it on any package with a value over 5$. We are required when purchasing the shipping label to declare the value of the package. Unfortunately by law we cannot modify this value to try and save the customs fee charge. We must declare the full value of the item, because in some situations you as the customer will be required to show a receipt to prove the value of the package, so what we declare must match what you paid.

All sales are final, and orders can not be cancelled. We start processing different types of orders at varying times depending on the current load, and materials can start being prepared for your cable within hours or minutes of your order being completed. This is a blanket policy that applies to all orders, all hours of the day, to be fair to all customers.

All sales are final. Make sure your order is correct before placing it. We often start working on cables within hours of getting the order and once we start cutting things for your cable we cannot refund any part of your order.

All cables are tested before shipment. If your cable arrives and seems to not be working properly, we will ask you to return it to us for testing and potential replacement. Returns for a refund on functioning or non functioning cables will not be accepted due to the custom made-to-order nature of our mouse and USB cables.

If you are not completely satisfied with your cable, please contact us, and we will be happy to address your concerns.

USB Cables

Yes, you can! We offer extra detachable device and host ends through our Custom Detachable USB End page. This provides adaptability for your custom detachable USB cables and allows you to change out your keyboard, or your PC for a laptop, without needing a whole new cable 🙂

PLEASE NOTE:

  • Our detachable device ends are designed to work with all Dream Cables detachables, but we can not guarantee functionality when mixed with cable ends from other cable vendors.
  • We do not recommend trying to use a coil on each side of your detachable aviator, since your true cable length can quickly exceed 15 feet in wire length and go out of USB 2.0 specifications.

It doesn’t! Your cable will be whatever length you choose and also include your coil in that length.

Example: If you order a 7-foot cable with a 6-inch coil, your cable will be 7 feet long and include a 6-inch coil within those 7 feet.

USB spec calls for cables to be no more than 16 feet long using our 28AWG cable.

Because coils require more cable length when formed, we recommend cables with 9-inch coils be no longer than 6 feet. Cables with 6-inch coils should be perfectly functional in any of our standard lengths offered.

Of course! Every Dream Cable is plugged in and checked to be working properly immediately before shipping.

Techflex is a woven plastic that is used to reinforce the strength of your cable while providing another option of customization. It is loose enough to still see the color or pattern of paracord underneath it, just not as vibrant as the paracord alone. If looking for reinforcement of your cable without losing too much of your paracord pattern, our Clear Techflex is a great option for you!

Visit our Instagram to browse many paracord and Techflex combinations to get an idea of how a Techflex color changes the look of the paracord underneath!
