Step 3 (Optional) Secure the cables using cable ties

This step is optional. Secure the cables using fastening devices such as cable ties. This will improve the robot wiring. Before fastening the cable ties, make sure the modules can move the whole range (180 degrees). Also check that the servo wires are not too tight.

1) Place the cable tie around one wire (Click to enlarge)
2) Fasten the tie until it holds the wire (Click to enlarge)
