GOOD LUCK! I doubt you will find the connectors for sale.
Many have looked...none to be found. About a year ago there were some on sale from the Ukraine at $31 + shipping, but no longer are they listed.

Gray Ghost Amphibians have the same connector, of course, but I doubt that you could obtain the connectors from them.

I did manage to take one apart, shorten the headphone cable, and reassemble because of a break in the wire. It was one heck of task.
The epoxy is about impossible to work with. The set is still working, but I have gone to the GG Amphibian because of the volume control.

thank you for the answer,

it is surprising that Garrett can not provide a piece of their detectors
if a connector screw thread is out of service
Then, the detector is dead !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! :thumbdown:

I doubt if any of the detector makers will send you internal parts to their machines, they aren't in the parts sourcing business. Garrett has a great customer service department and quick turnaround times, with very reasonable prices for out of warranty work. I sent in a Sea Hunter XL-200 about 12 years after I bought it for a broken coil wire (coil was hard wired on that machine) and they refurbed the entire unit by not only fixing the coil wire but also replacing all the water tight seals, and put in a new set of internal batteries and only charged me $45 and that included shipping.

I bought a new Infinium 2 months ago and also got a 8" mono coil with it. I have been using it with the stock coil to become familiar with it and so just put the 8" mono on it and found that the coil was defective with a broken wire near the connector. I called them up and after a 5 minute call they are sending a replacement coil with a postage paid return label for the broken coil.

I can't say enough good things about their customer service department, its the best. :clap:

One of thousands of great experiences with Garrett's Customer Service.

If you have a problem with any Garrett product, at least call them and 99.999% of the time
they will help if it is physically possible. Of course they may not have an older part that is
required for a fix, but they just might come up with a work-around.

I have a few (4) of the connectors if you still need, 13 each shipped. I got them from working on the GGA's a few years ago. All brand new.............They will need to be taken a part and it is possible, for I have repaired a few sets of headphones using them.



Effort is Important, But knowing where to make an effort can make all the difference!
