The LK501 will not work. It has a different connector - I checked some I
have last night just to make sure my memory served correctly. It has a
modular plug with the locking tabs on both sides. Totally different from

for a hockey puck mouse that has the same king of plug. Not the normal PS2
style VSxxx-AA connector again. The plugs remind me of the HP keyboard
connectors from the Apollo days.
