    I thought it was a good idea.

    My Autocom connectors have ridges that I use to line them up when I can't see them. The only issue is that the ridges are too small to feel with heavy gloves on.

    I knew that somebody much younger with a better memory would jump in to help me out on that one.

    +1. My cables have the raised ridges that line up. I have no problem finding them with my summer gloves or my BMW winter gloves. Just takes a bit of practice.

    Even with heavy gloves, I roll the connectors lightly against each other and feel the index as they line up...then push together. Took some getting used to,but now it's easy. Dark, rainy,whatever.
