Problems with my "brand new" LX-200 Classic 10"

Recently bought a classic LX-200 10" and have been having problems with the DEC motor cable. Since it sticks up so high at it's plug-in on the panel, when the fork passes it the fork catches it and puts a strain on the plug-in and I guess it shorts out causing the DEC motor to run until I turn the power off.
I would presume that if I had a cable with a connector that has the cable coming off the panel such that it wasn't sticking straight up, that would prevent the problem. Does anyone have any ideas, including where I might get such a cable/connector combination.

Check with Scope Stuff DOT com. I think they sell
replacement cables for Classic LX200's for this
reason, and others.
