Wouldn’t it be easier to use something like this:


USB cables come in lots of different cable thicknesses; I’d think that soldering the connector back on and then panel-mounting one of these would be easier than stripping and aligning the wires.

(Sadly, I don’t have any of these left. I’ve used them all on devices I’ve built)
