So i got some mogami 2319 and pancake plugs, but it looks like its to skinny? What can i use to beef up the cable around the pug? (Heat shrink? Insulation? ect) Thanks

Heat shrink. That's what I did, worked perfectly. Added just enough to the circumference of the cable to make the plugs grip it.

I used heatshrink over the cable so that the plug could grip, then another piece over the plug and cable to act as a strain relief (bigger size obviously).

When I do skinny cable I use about 1/2" of heat shrink under where the cable will get clamped, with an additional 1" piece over that for strain relief and "good looks."

What plugs are you using? I use GLS pancake plugs, and the fit is quite snug. If unsure, mount the cable to the plug and screw down the plug cover. You will see the cable retention realy clamps it down enough to pinch the cable and leaving a mark.
