Some web browsing shows me that Mate-N-Lock pins are still available,
but the flat connector shells seem to be gone.

On the Compaq web site there are some cables with Mate-N-Lock on one
end and various other connectors on the other end, for use with LA30's.

I tried to search the Compaq site for Mate-N-Lock but it crashed my
Netscape 6, as usual.
