As I would like to use the great cable chain designed by Robert also on my Ultimaker original, I made this remix of his design (https://www.youmagine.com/designs/ultimaker2-cable-chain).
Chain parts are the same, a new bottom and top end was needed.
Also the original parts are a bit too big for the space in the UM between platform and stepper, so I scaled the parts down to 75% (enough space for the heater and termistor wiring). 

Dim3nsioneer installed the chain on his UM original and modified it to give a better fit:
"However I had to modify the bed end part (yellow). With the original design, the radius for the chain segments was too small. Thus, I added 10mm on the bed end part and also moved the screw bore by these 10mm in order to get a larger radius for the chain segments. It works nice this way..."
Thank you for sharing the part - I included it into this package.

Materials and methods

- 1 pc. of bottom end with 5pc. of lids
- Print as much pc. of chain segment and same amount of lids as you need (at my setup, 10 pc. needed)
- 1 pc. of top end with 1pc. of lids

- Clean everything as it should work as smooth as possible and assamble the whole chain
- Mount the bottom end to the rear plywood, in a way the platform can move without problems using screws or double sided tape
- Mount the top end by using the lowest screw of the arm assambly
Place the cables in the chain and close it with the lids
