Well, you will have to cut one side of it to where the opening is available. Do that on the other one. there is like, a wall in the middle of some of the connectors. heat up a knife on fire, slice through it. bam. now, since it is the connector at the end of a cable, it is already connected to wires. Solder those wires to the board. Bam. Connector
