Hello, I've recieved my kit and I can't figure out how the connectors are supposed to attach. I'd fiddle with it but it's just so ...tiny. I suspect you have to press on it - there's no instructions I can find. Help!

With the help of a very large magnifying glass I was able to figure it out. Indeed there is a tiny hinged black plastic piece that flips up. Insert your cable with contacts towards the board and press down carefully. I gues it's supposed to be self-evident. I'm still learning and not as eagle-eyed as I used to be so basic instructions with pictures would have helped. Cheers.

Ah- definitely something we need, sorry about that. We'll add a magnified picture to the to-do list.
