and the specs of the CS Blackguards are...
this is the cable I use, but I cant find it on ebay or anywhere else

a few things you can do.
use a plug with neutrik ends, I use ProCo Musicmover cables
about $30 for 10 feet. These will fit any jack, electrosocket...
yeah i would have used the proper screws but the only drill bit I had wasnt big enough to drill holes sufficient in size for that to work.
