A friend of mine operates a vending machine in a school. Oftentimes, there are issues when a snack gets stuck in the machine, the students will rock the machine. Rocking the machine is an issue, because when the (very heavy) machine comes down on the wire, the wire can get cut. My friend has gotten people to patch it up a few times, most recently myself (simple job -- snip, strip, twist, and tape everything together).
However, the current situation is definitely not optimal -- I don't think we have a lot of wire to use :P
Therefore, I ask -- how can I protect the wire to prevent this from occurring again?
