Socapex disassembly?
« on: September 28, 2018, 08:05:11 pm »

Asking for help/advice on disassembling a Socapex end... so I can repair it.

Dang if I can remember or figure out how to disassemble... it's a 19pin male end.  The problem is the pin body is rotating within the shell... I think the set-screw or similar failed or backed off.  I fixed the same problem in one of these many years ago and forget what was involved... I think there was some snap-ring type clip or something that holds the pin body in the shell, but I can't recall... except I vaguely recall there was a trick to it.  My ends are fairly old... I'm guessing 20 - 30 years old.  They're all silver, with just the "S" logo on them... two screw cable clamp on the cord exit end.

Any help is definitely appreciated.

Update:  I sort-of figured it out, and somewhat "remembered".  With a flashlight I determined there is a snap ring that holds the pin body to the front of the connector, which I removed with needle nose pliers from the disassembled cable exit end of the connector body.  I still can't remove the pin body fully from the shell... it won't come out the front or back side... for the same reason round manhole covers don't fall down the hole... a round thing can't go through a smaller round hole.

It seems like the front of the connector shell might be pressed on.  I dunno… this might be a hopeless/ pointless task (exercise in futility) 'cause I think the clocking tab on the side of the pin body is sheered off, and it might be time to snip-off the cable and reattach to a new socapex end.

Can you post some pictures of the connector in question?

Yes.  I'll snap a picture next time I'm where it's at... which is unceremoniously hucked on the "round to-it pile"... currently out of sight and temporarily out of mind.... along with the rest of the "round to-it maybe someday pile". ;)
