Default Bipes wire connection gets loose

My connector on the Bipes has two screws that do not seem to pinch the wires tight enough to keep them from coming out of the plug. Is there some corrective action that can be applied. I tried going to Radio Shack to purchase another plug (no luck) and I tried getting one from BEGI (also no luck). For the time being, I have just made the unit secure/immobile and routed the wire so it comes out the back as straight as possible! Does anyone have a link to an organization/company/individual that has this connector or some solution? Thanks

My Sony Digital just took its last...the hot glue sounds like an avenue. I have access to aviation grade fuel cell adhesive that is as tenatious as hot glue, maybe more so. At the very least it will hold the wire/connector in the same relative positions so the contact is maintained. *Brainac: The screw used to pinch the wire is either stripped or does not retain enough tension to pinch the wire. Thanks for the suggestions. I'll try the glue this weekend when I can let everything cure.

whoa do not use any glue or adhesives bad idea.. when you strip the wire strip it a little longer than usual and 'fold' the wire to create a 'thicker' wire so it will get a better clamp on it. i have alot of experience with electronics so id take my advice.

WOW! I'm glad I checked back another time to find your post. That does sound a little more logical...and cheaper too! Thanks for the update...I'm up early tomorrow to do the deed.
