    I have just got a roll of IXOS 607 flat cable and started to lay it out. However I have noticed that I cannot bend the cable through 90 degrees (On its horizontal plane as its wide and flat). Any ideas on how to do this from the custom installers / DIY'ers. I can keep it straight for most of the run, but I do need to make one or two twists.... Any help is much appreciated.

    Fold it over to the required angle (unless it get's too thick then).

    There aren't any obvious ways to bend flat cable in that direction.

    If you carefully slit the middle of the cable in that section with a knife you'll be able to twist and fold it naturally but hopefully keep the overall width a bit narrower. :)
