Hey everyone,
            Anyone know what the tiny plastic plugs are called that go
into rectangular cable sockets, so you can only put a cable in one way?
Old IDE cables used to have one in them.

Thanks in advance,
Aaron

Polarizing pin, insert, plug, something like that.

Hmmm... I was thinking more along the lines of "epoxy". :-)

A quick squirt of silicone ? Not so runny but too soft ?

Thanks everyone,
               For future reference digikey has some H2000-ND for 53
cents each expensive little things I think they have cheaper also.
Expensive for a 0.01 cent plastic piece.  In the future I think I'll
use expoxy as suggested or crazy glue!  Can't get enough crazy glue.
Even great for cuts, FYI.  ;)

Thanks again,
Aaron

BTW, my new IDC crimpers are my current favourite tool :) It's just so
much fun :)

I think that the last time I needed this and decided NOT to use glue I
used a piece of insulated wire. I dunked it in contact cement and stuck it
in the hole, then cut the overhang with flat shears. Works great once you
find the right wire gauge. I know some far east companies used solid
plastic thread (fishing thread nylon ?) for this, also with glue. If you
are nervous about the contact cement getting where it should not, use a
small bead of 'hot stuff' kept liquid on a suitable heater.

Cyanoacrylate glue was invented for 'field closure' of large wounds during
the Vietnam war. It was designed to 'set' on exposure to moisture.
If you've ever spilled some on your fingers you KNOW it bonds skin
exceedingly well.

Here in the U.S. we have a lot of garden appliances called "weed eaters"
officially termed "string trimmers". They use tough plastic line available
in many gauges, from about .050" to over .100". It is available round or
square. In several colors.

Cheers,

Bob

One learns the darnedest things on the PIClist:

Many of the technologies used in earlier times
concentrated specifically on sealing skin wounds. This
was critical because any infection could be fatal in the
days before antibiotics. During the Vietnam War, it
was discovered that the use of cyanoacrylate on skin
closure would aid in closing battlefield wounds. This
material is helpful in approximating tissues that are
not in an aqueous environment (internal) and that
will not undergo a tremendous amount of flexion.

Today, several cyanoacrylates are available for clinical
use, including Histocryl and Dermabond.

Best fit is obtained by using a pin broken off of the male half...

Sorry to drag this topic out of the cellar, but I found it in the
archives and did some of my own searching.  Digikey has cheaper
polarizing keys under P/N WM2400-ND for $0.16 each:
