Apple iPhone Charge Cord Getting Caught / Stuck

So this is a weird one (apologies in advance)!

I have an Apple iPhone and use the USB to lighting cord to charge same in my car. I plug the USB end to the outlet in the center storage compartment and have same slip through the center arm rests. When not using the cord I allow it to drape down by the front passenger seat, and it ends up lying on the carpet by the passenger foot well. Anyone else do this?

My problem, however, is that all too often when going to reach for the cord, when pulling it up, it gets caught / wedged in between a plastic trim on the lower front portion of passenger seat bottom and the left side edge of the leather cushion (the part that is able to extend forward) no matter carefulness o avoid same. Anyone understand what Iím referring to?

The reason why Iím writing is that it seems the plastic seat bottom trim Iím referring to shouldnít have any give, but it flexes enough for the cord to get caught / wedged by same. Iím crazy, right? If not, anyone secure the plastic trim in a way that it doesnít flex, so this doesnít happen? A strong tape would work, but far too crude.

Sorry, but no photos, as car is at dealer now.

Thanks.

Thank you, but it's not that.

I'm going to need to take a picture for this one!

Will do so when I get my car back.

Thanks though!

I know you've had a lot of issues with your car, but now you are just inventing problems.

I just tie a loose knot in mine so that it doesn't hang down that far.
