clamp for pizero camera connector

Sat Jul 16, 2016 12:31 pm

Does anyone know a source from which I can obtain a replacement black clamp for the camera connector socket on the PiZero? One of the small lugs on the side of mine has unfortunately broken off. Alternatively any other solutions to keep the camera cable in place.

If its gonna be a permanent connection I suppose you could try HotGlue :o

I'm usually prefer repairing over replacing but in this case even i would simply buy a new one and use the "broken" one for another project.

Luckily, the PiZero is in stock right now...

So far using sellotape holding the broken clamp in place, Seems to work reasonably well.

You can't buy a 'replacement' clamp. It's part of the connector. So they only way of getting this fixed would be replacing the connector as such.
