Tips for securing microdot connector

Trey LaCroix

Recommended Posts

Hey guys, I switch between Lectro and Zax/Shure fairly often and have my lavs wired with a microdot connector so I can switch connectors as needed. Occasionally the connector will come loose, particularly for ankle rigs for some reason, and need tightening throughout the day.


Any tips for securing the connector more securely?

PTFE thread seal tape is a good idea, as long as the threads don’t have to conduct electricity.… 

The threads are the mic ground, so probably not a good idea

Maybe a tiny dab of loctite purple (lowest strength) would work… but I’d test that on a mic and adapter that you don’t mind glueing if it is too strong
