Maybe I'm being a bit too cautious, but I'm having a bit of trouble getting the wires to stay in the plug. I've carefully opened them up with a small screw driver, but don't want to go too far. Time to walk away for the night.

 

Just me, or anyone else have this problem? If so, any suggestions/words of wisdom or commiseration?

 

 

Thanks

    I put a dab of RTV on mine and moved on

    Or don’t use the plug at all, you can see if the fast-on connectors are all home.

    Agree with Des.  Did this to mine some years ago, no further problem using insulated slide-ons.  And my regulator is vertical.

    Occam's Razor.

     

    After walking away last night I called my Sensei, Jim Ratte the SeaRey Specialist this morning and express my hate of fast-on/never-off connectors.

     

    Jim: Did you put them in the correct way? Which side is the round part on?

    Me: Yes, with the round side to the left.

    Jim: Wrong. Look inside and you'll see the ridge the little tab hooks into.

    Got back to my hangar this afternoon, pulled them all out, looked inside the connector with my borescope. Shit.

     

    Reinstalled them, and *click*. Perfect fit, and the plug went in on the first try.

     

    sigh....
