Default Loose Receiver Battery Connection - Any Ideas?

I tried to search for this but didn't find anything.

I have a new Stickman receiver pack that plugs into my receiver switch with a universal plug. The end on the Stickman battery is the original and the other end going to the switch is new also. They fit together fine, just not very snug.

I can pull them apart with very little effort. I have been wrapping tape around them to make sure they don't vibrate loose when I run my car. But I am wondering if there is any way to make the connection fit tighter? Maybe dry some super glue on the non-connector areas to make the connector a little larger? Anyone have any ideas who has dealt with this? Thanks!

Replace them both with a mini deans connector. Much more secure, durable and reliable.

That just might work. Some heatshrink around it then trim off part until it is sung! Thanks for the idea!

If I can't get this to work, I guess it's time to get out the soldering iron again! But I just soldered the universal one on so I was hoping it would work.

Agree on replacing connectors with Dean's Products
