It can be connected ("stitched") to regular wires on a surface by [[#|placing]] a piece of Red Alloy Wire on the surface you want it to connect to.

Jacketed cables are also self-supporting and will only "stitch" to non-colored bundled cable.
It is also possible to create jacketed [[#|cable bundles]] in addition to the normal red alloy wire.

Jacketed cables are the self-supporting version of bundled cables. They do not require a surface to sit upon. They can be made from any material that can be cut into covers and an uncolored bundled cable in [[#|the center]]. It cannot be crafted from colored cables. It will also only connect ("stitch") to a surface with an uncolored cable.
