    Default what is this ribbon connector called and where can I find them?

    I have a few old apple II plus keyboards and joysticks (that use ribbon cables) that have broken off pins. I want to get new connectors but I am unsure what they are called or where to find them. kbiiplus.jpg
    Hoping its something obvious and you guys can help.
    thanks,
    Mick

    IDC DIP plug. Designed to crimp onto flat cable to plug into a DIP socket.

    They're fairly standard parts, just search for IDC DIP plug.

    I am, all I keep getting is the narrow connectors which (excuse my lack of terminology) are like the header to an ide or floppy cable. More narrow than that for a rom/IC chip.
