    I built a couple of my own cables using the the locking plugs I got from Markertek. The problem I just discovered is the locking collar doesn't screw on far enough to lock the plug tight and it can pull out 1 notch and disconnect. Anyone else have this problem? The plug I used looks just like the others I see for sale.

    For those with after market cables give it a pull and see if the plug pulls out just a bit. I didn't notice this first few times I used it.

    I got the "stock" pre-made upgrade cable and it the locking plug goes in fully and doesn't pull up at all.

    highly recommend getting one from lavacable - w/ EA Melody cord and good end - cheaper than the upgrade cable from X2, classier, better...!

    When I got mine (right angle) Lava didn't have his available. But I should be taking delivery today or tomorrow of a straight plug one that I recently ordered from Mark. Dana, if I experience the same issue with the new one as you're having with yours, I'll post here again.
