You have Paramount build a cord to your specs.

I'm certain Rollei sells synch cords with the proper locking connector. I'm even more certain they cost 100x more than the average synch cord :)

Have a look at Paramount's web site:

I would call them to confirm the SL66 socket is the same fit as the TLRs. (I don't own a locking cord but I'd like to know if you find out!)

Okay -- it isn't really a problem. It's a little annoyance -- an inconvenience -- that I'd like to address.

The sync cord from my old Metz 45 flash unit tends to fall out of my SL66 "X" connector far too easily. This has been happening for years and I am weary of it. I'm guessing that the spring-loaded latch on the camera's flash connector jack keys into a slot on the sync cord's plug. However, this sync cord -- a new Metz replacement -- has no slot or other means of locking into the camera's jack. Surely someone else has run into this problem. Did you find a cure? (I suppose I could cut a tiny slot in the cord plug but it would take a mighty fine blade to do it).

Thanks,
