Nintendo touchscreen breakout board connector

Hi,

Quick question for anyone who's used one of the Sparkfun breakout boards.

How do you attach the touchscreen cable? I've destroyed a breakout board trying to flip open the connector. What's the trick? Simply sliding the cable in doesn't seem like a solid connection.

Thank god the little blighters are cheap, and I bought a few upfront!

Cheers,

Very carefully. The black side bits slide slightly outwards (not off the board) then you put the cable in and slide the black bits back in to close it.

Heh, very carefully indeed. Thanks for that! :)

Cheers,

Well at least you purchased a breakout board. I just cut the connector and soldered wires on to it. Extremely carefully :P

The screen was free out of a broken DS so I didn't want to pay for a breakout board ;D
