When I bought two of these adapters, I had high hopes for them because the design is so slim, I can save space with them. When I unplugged the other one the first time to change the pedal, it split half. The "deck" side stuck on jack and let go from the "cuo" side, cutting the wire at the process. When I looked closer at the problem, I noticed that it splits quite easily, and most likely the wire too. I soldered the wire and packed it back, plugged into a pedal in my hand and tried to remove it in one piece, no luck. The solution for me was to solder the wire, fill up the "cup" side with some good glue and put back the "deck" side so it would clued together. The downside is that solution lasts forever, but then again, it won't be needed to be opened, so far it had opened unintentionally. Now it has worked fine, thanks for the glue, but I recommend this trick if encountered the same problem, and I think you do.
