            After soldering, fill the connector with epoxy or liquid plastic and let cure. Now the strain relief is not such a big deal. Been doing this for years with 1/4" stuff, makes it as bulletproof as possible.

                  As other have said, instructions are needed to know where to soldier wires.

                  BullWin... it is not obvious what wire goes where, we can't all be as smart as you think you are. Just because this is your field doesn't mean its everyone field. And to those who say get the right equipment(meter), I say most who will use this plug are not Electronic TECHs and don't have it laying around or know how to use a meter on the plug.

                  Comments about RadioShack Replacement Right-Angle 3/32"" Stereo Headset Plug:

                  Soldering wire to the TR is precarious because the plastic in between melts easily and the cavity is very tiny, and I have the smallest soldering tip the Shack offers. I think you only get one chance to do it right, so plan accordingly. My soldering iron is 23w, so you might want to go 15w.

                  I managed to meticulously solder the very stiff 2-conductor shielded audio cable (278-513), which is also tough to work with. I've been soldering for a long time to make my own cables, and this plug is very challenging, even with a third-hand holder. Nevertheless, I was able to make a custom mic cable for a DSLR, a cable that doesn't appear to exist commercially (1' right-angle 2.5mm TRS to right-angle XLRF, ganged to mono).

                  Other companies offer a similar plug with a bigger head, but not as conveniently as going to a local Shack. At least I should try out this plug. Hence, I give the Shack one star for even having such an item in store and two stars because the plug works with some effort.

                  However, is there longevity in this plug? I hope so, but the stiff audio cable and tightness of the plug could eventually snap. Will I buy another one? I'm not sure, but the right-angle is very useful in the field, and can likely prolong the life of the jack. Most DSLR shooters use a commercially available XLRF to 3.5mm cable and insert an adapter (274-373), all straight. 'Seems that could put a strain on the jack.

                      I bought a new headphone for my daughter, and the plug broke in a week. I hadn't soldered in years, but thought I could give it a try. Overall it wasn't too bad.

                      For following are the steps for the Kidz Gear Headphones:

                      First slide the black casing down the wire.

                      Second, strip sheathing to expose 1-1.5 inch of wires. Tie a knot as close the bottom of the exposed wires as possible.

                      Third, attach and twist the copper wire onto the center connector, the red onto the left, and the blue onto the right.

                      Fourth, apply finger nail polish at the three points of contact to remove the lacquer from the wire which serves as insulation. Rubbing alcohol should also work.

                      Fifth, test the plug in the headphone jack to make sure the connections are good.

                      Sixth, connect plug to casing.

                      Project should take about 30-45 minutes.

                      added old school handset to cell phone; for those complaining about no pin-out diagram, use your eyes.

                      tip projects from the center, really, how hard is this to figure out? This goes to the speaker yellow wire for my application.

                      ring on outside of insulator that surrounds the tip, red mic wire for my application.

                      sleeve is ground, also has integral metal tabs for strain relief, the black & green wires for my application.

                      The solder areas are very small. Tin your leads and they will stick with just a bit of heat, do to the gold. the plastic used is not at all heat resistant, keep a damp paper towel handy because you are going to soften it... The "strain relief" is just a couple pieces of metal you bend down over the conductors, crimping them in place.[...]

                        If you don't know what you are doing, don't bother, but that can be said about most of the components at Radio Shack...

                        I use these for cable release applications for my Pentax DSLRS, but as far as I know, they are compatible with Canon and other brands.

                        Works fine, and has no clearance problems whatsoever. If you need to make a wired remote, this is the plug to buy.

                              I am amazed at the number of people who know enough to solder but cannot figure out this very typical plug. Parts like this neither come with nor require instructions -- they are fairly obvious on inspection. If in doubt, test it with a meter. What, you have a soldering iron and no meter? Jeepers, instead of complaining why not get the right tools? Radio Shack has some cool educational kits if you are just learning.

                                  Appears to be a good product. The nose on right angle plug is long enough that the plug body does not come in contact with the device. This is important especially if the receptacle is counter sunk. This has been a problem with plugs I have purchased from other companies.

                                  There is no strain relief as advertised on the package. That would have made the product a 5 star for me. A pin out for the connector would be nice to have but using a continuity tester easily solves this issue.
