Raspberry Pi Ribbon Cable Connector Fix

(or any ribbon cable connector fix)


I have busted so many of the VERY fragile ribbon connector cable clamps!  Here is the fix:  Cut a "T" out of some plastic from a milk jug.  Insert it into the connector.  Push the ribbon cable in with it.  Test the unit.  If all is well a couple of drops of hot melt on either side will hold it in.

Problem solved!
