QMA connector dust caps?

Anyone come across any QMA connector dust caps? @njoro maybe?

Looking at my case, the permanently-exposed connectors may suffer long term.

One possibility is to make some using just a bit of heat shrink moulded over the top of an unused connector? :thinking:

If you let me know the dimensions I can print you some

@njoro said try this…:nerd_face:

A little mod and jobs a good one…:dizzy_face:

Thanks James, may take you up on that if I can’t find a rubber boot solution.

Do these fit, they look too big? :thinking:

I don’t know really, it’s one of those things that you buy and try and should they be slightly smaller they will stretch making a tight fit.
Heat shrink will mold perfectly for that and as you know I have the same connectors on my antenna so I could ran a test print and let you know as I’m in the process of designing and printing a camera hood for the X5S 45 mm lens.

@Wyntrblue has offered to print them for you…:+1:

These would look great on the case but cant find any in UK.

I’ve used Sugru to make caps for things like that.

I went the zero cost route in the end:

I had this coupler connector which I sacrificed this evening.

These connectors latch on, so can’t fall off in transit :+1:t2:

Just seen this, it’s a good idea, knowing me I’d lose one.

You could always join them together with a bit of wire.

Like those mittens that had a bit of string running up one arm and down the other :blush:

That would be a long piece of wire …… :stuck_out_tongue:

Then instead of losing one he will lose both :rofl:

I’ve got lots of single socks, do you think a string is a good idea and would it be under the underpants or outside the underpants…:thinking:
