I had the same problem with Cardas RCA. These RCA plugs weren't solid ahd had a "6-teeth" structure. I inserted a wire pliers inside and streched(very carefully) the opposite "teeth" on each plug.

While i've never had such a severe problem as you mention, i have had some RCA's that are very, very tight fits. As Paulwp mentions, i've never seen a locking or "clamping" connector that could not be loosened up enough to slide it on. Most of my problems have been with non-locking RCA's that were either "under sized" on purpose (trying to make the most contact area possible) or simply not machined right to begin with. Sean
Good point and I agree with HDM (the Bee Man:-) on this point. I did not find this out until I "forgot" to tighten a pair of HT Truthlink IC's in the midst of some cable swaps (they sounded much better somewhat loose). Natural instinct is to tighten the crap out of anything that tightens (except the oil plug on auto's), but this is not always the best way to go with these RCA's.
