    8" Lilliput connector question

    Hi all,
    First post here. I've been lurking for a while and have found alot of good info here.

    I'm installing an 8" lilliput in my dash, and have a clearance problem with the connector that comes with it.

    I don't know what that style of connector is called, but it is shaped like a trapezoid, and looks like connectors for external CD drives for laptops.

    I'm wondering if anyone makes a 90 degree angle connector for that. Also, what is that style connector called?

    Thanks

    How many pins does it have? Can you post a pic of the connector?

    I'm at work right now. I can send a pic tonight... the connector doesn't have any 'pins' that are visible... there is a black plastic tab in the middle, and metal contacts are on the sides of that tab.

    I'll post a pic tonight

    Thanks

    The description of a trapezoid connector led me to think it was a Centronics connector. Now that I see a pic, I can say that it is a Centronics connector. By pins, I meant contacts and I cannot tell how many contacts that connector has.

    That's it. Thanks. In the mean time, I took the housing off the connector, and it seems to fit without the full housing.

    Cheers
