      I was thinking of doing that.  Radio Shack's connector series has a loose spec from what I read on Wikipedia.
      Do you have part numbers from mouser and digikey?  That would be helpful.
      Thanks again,

      If you don't mind cutting the cord and splicing a whole new connector on there then go to Digikey or Mouser. They have the proper sized barrel connector in both straight and right angle configurations.

      I made my own 12 volt adapter and bought a cord from Digikey (Mouser has the same ones, too) that had a molded, right angle connector on the end. Works fine, no loose connections.
