bengkokan tajam
Explanation:
Main Entry: dogleg
Function: noun
Date: circa 1909
1 a : something having an abrupt angle b : a sharp bend (as in a road)
2 : a golf hole having an angled fairway

Sounds like the wire has bends in it, like a "dog's leg". Not too sure if you could use that in Malaysian.
Good luck anyway
