Hi Steve.

If you're talking about those sub-b mini connectors on USB cables, I know what you mean. I haven't messed any up yet, but I hate just having to try to see which side is which.

You can get cables with a marking on one side, or you can put a mark on one side to help with orientation. As I write that, I'm going to do that right now on my cable.

I am having a real challenge with those connectors that have the little pins inside them.

Careful as I may be, I seem to mess them up more often than not.

Anybody have a tip on how to plug these little buzzards in without bending the pins?
