I have a jetbot that comes with a wireless adapter. This model has two masts with small wires to connect to an adapter.

I am having trouble getting the connectors attached to the adapter.

Hoping for some help with this issue.

I can't really tell from the picture... Is that end round or triangle ?

I ask because I bought the wrong one the first time myself, and the connector on the wire was triangle, but I couldn't tell until I looked at it with my mag scope

If it's a round one, then don't sweat it. You're not doing anything wrong, it's just a real pain to get connected

You have to VERY carefully line it up, then squeeze... hard. I used needle-nose pliers. I've heard other people have done it with their fingernails, but my fingers were too big to see it to make sure it was lined up while I was squeezing

Thank you for your reply. They are round and came with the kit I bought.

I was tempted to try needle-nose pliers but was afraid of damage. And my fingers cannot press hard enough either.

I'll try the pliers. The inside of the round plug on the wireless unit itself has a little 'nub' and so does the inside of the wire plug. I think that is making it difficult.

Apparently I bought the cheap version, which didn't turn out quite so cheap considering that I had to buy the antennas twice

If you have a jeweler's loop or some kind of magnifying camera, that would help
