I bought a wi-fi USB key, in the box there was also a little guy, named
universal joint. It is a sort of elbow, an articulation, whose purpose was
to orientate the key in every direction, whatever USB port you use.
Here's the problem. The joint broke down. I have fixed it with a twist-tie,
freezing it in the position you can see in the picture, but that's not a


I have searched everywhere for another joint, but I can't find where these
joint are sold. I don't, even, know exactly what i am searching for.

Have you ever seen this kind of stuff?

Looks like a unique part you would only find with same
family of wifi key... so you could buy another of same key
to get the joint.

Do you need to continually readjust it or you just want it
to stay in a fixed position?  If you only need a fixed
position, I suggest taking it out and while bent in the
right position, liberally coating the joint with a
non-conductive quick-set epoxy, making it permanently rigid,
fixed into that position..
