How to Rotate a Male XLR Connector to the Desired Angle

Tools you will need:

  1. Flathead screwdriver


Locate the XLR connector's release tab Examine the male XLR connector and find the release tab on the side of the connector. This tab locks the connector's internal components in place.

Depress the release tab Using the flathead screwdriver, gently press down on the release tab. This will unlock the internal components of the connector.

Rotate the connector While keeping the release tab depressed with the screwdriver, rotate the XLR connector's outer casing to the desired angle. Ensure that the connector is rotated only in the direction that allows for smooth movement, as forcing it in the opposite direction may cause damage.

Release the tab and secure the new position Once you have achieved the desired angle for the connector, release the pressure on the release tab. This will lock the connector's outer casing in the new position.

Test the connection After adjusting the angle of the XLR connector, connect it to the corresponding female XLR connector to ensure a proper fit and secure connection.
