Hi there. Do you stock extension cables for the 15 pin variety? I have searched online and the only ones I can find are for the VGA type connector (3 rows) not this type (2 rows).

in relation to the above question, The 15 pin plug, if it is the same how come when i ordered one mine was not the 3 rows of 5 plug. The product code i ordered was BK58N. What is the right code for the VGA plug.
Asked by: Matt Skelton
The code you require is JW77J which is a HD15 (that is High Density 15-pin) D socket. This has the same outside dimensions as the standard 9-way plug, but has 15 pins arranged in three rows, rather than the standard 15-pin D socket which is larger and has its pins in 2 rows.
