At last - new replacement keyboard connectors !

Over the years, we have been asked by various customers about replacements for the connectors on the motherboard into which you plug the keyboard membrane tails. 

On some computers, where an external keyboard has previously been fitted, we have found that the gaps on the keyboard connectors may be too large to hold the keyboard membrane securely.  On other computers, the connectors are either broken or have been removed for some reason.

We have now managed to track down a source of these Molex branded connectors and can offer them in small quantities (most suppliers no longer have them in stock, or demand a minimum order quantity of at least 600!).

We are therefore offering a set of two Molex connectors for the Sinclair ZX Spectrum / ZX80 / ZX81 / TS1000 / TS1500 and TS-2048 motherboard (Molex parts 22-02-3053 and 22-02-3083) providing a 5 pin and an 8 pin connector.

Not easy to fit, as you have to desolder the existing connectors, and resolder these in their place.
