Firestore cable isue

I just spent 11 days traveling in Costa Rica with the A1 and Firstore. I used the supplied 6 to 4 pin cable supplied. I liked the right angle 6 pin side. It made it easy to protect that connection and not break it. However, the 4 pin side was very fragile. The way the wire sticks straight out is a problem. After a few days of plugging and un-plugging the connection became loose and I had connection issues. I think it would be great if I had a right angle connector on both ends of the cable. That way I could put a piece of tape over that end to protect and hold it in place.
Does anyone know if this cable exists or have a better way to protect and keep that connection tight? Thanks

It is only 1 foot long though. If your firestore is camera mounted it would be fine.
