7" TFT serial (DSI) port broken tab

Mon Jan 22, 2018 6:29 pm

Well it appears my hands were a little too big for this tiny tab that holds in the flex cable into the Raspberry pi 7 TFT flex cable. It is in 2 pieces now and I need to get a new one. Does anyone know where I can buy a few of these so I can keep some on hand? I have been all over google with no luck, it seems I am the first to shame myself and I say I broke one of these!

You will most likely need to buy the entire connector in order to get the tab. I don't know if the tab can be taken out without breaking it?
Unless specified otherwise my response is based on the latest and fully updated Raspbian Stretch w/ Desktop OS.
