Looking for "bad" USB cord/device

I am looking to get a ripped/chewed/cut/sliced/etc USB A male cord, it can be anything old mouse/keyboard/camera cord/etc, and has to be about 1-3 feet long.

I have tried my IT department, but we are a Not-for-Profit company and slow to get new equipment and USB is very rare here. I looked at ebay w/o any luck.

Anyone have a suggestion to where to find something like this? I am looking for free or nearly free. Thanks

These are cheap enough. Buy one, mangle it, and then pretend that you got it that way.

All the ones I saw on ebay were cheap, until shipping was included. I saw one that was .99 with shipping at $12.95, but I will look again.

I will look at pccables as well, thanks.

Look at the link I gave you. Some of them are 1 cent with $5.00 shipping. I agree that $13.94 is too much, but I think that $5.01 should be cheap enough.

I just picked up for $5, much cheaper than the ones I saw yesterday, and this is a seller that is not in China or feedback of 3 (these were the only ones that were cheap that I saw), thanks again.

Big Lots had some as well for around $3-$4. That should come out cheaper than any online method with shipping.
