  • k301 does not fit b/c vga plug bumps into metal bar in firewall

    Hi guys, thanks for any help you can offer. I just bought a k-301, and the vga plug at the end of the cable bumps into a metal bar in my firewall. i was wondering if anybody knew where i could get an adapter, or if anybody has tried take a part the adapter head. it's about an inch too long (the unit sticks out too far in my dash), so i want to take an inch off the vga plug.

    i read someone else had to do this, but i dont remember who. will i have any problems taking a dremel and break up the plastic?

    Get a right-angle VGA adapter or cable.

    Perhaps something like this: http://www.extron.com/product/produc...shllf90upvmcac
    Have you looked in the FAQ yet?
    How about the Wiki?



    Under normal circumstances, a signature would go here.

      Those steel parts in a car are only there to make it heavier, cut it away!

      Seriously, get a right-angle connector or just buy a db15 plug and solder it to your vga-cable. They're tiny. Then just tape it up of use some wax/bondo on it!

      Good luck!

          Try RS components (if they exist in your country)...

            JC-S60: Are you referring to something like this?

              Sorry, should have said DB15hd (hd stands for high density, which makes it has 3 rows of pins).

              Also, it looks like those are for pcb-mounting and not cable, which makes it just a little harder to solder, but not much.
