So I'm trying to use a miops smart trigger. I want it to run my flash. This is the cable I'm supposed to use:

' . substr('https://cdn.shopify.com/s/files/1/0273/9113/1725/products/Rollei-Video-MIOPS-Blitzkabel-1602507827_700x.png?v=1602507829', strrpos('https://cdn.shopify.com/s/files/1/0273/9113/1725/products/Rollei-Video-MIOPS-Blitzkabel-1602507827_700x.png?v=1602507829', '/') + 1) . '

But it doesn't fit in the sync port on my flash or the sync ports on my Alienbee or Einstein strobes.

' . substr('//images.dpchallenge.com/images_portfolio/100000-104999/103142/120/Copyrighted_Image_Reuse_Prohibited_1274922.jpg', strrpos('//images.dpchallenge.com/images_portfolio/100000-104999/103142/120/Copyrighted_Image_Reuse_Prohibited_1274922.jpg', '/') + 1) . '

Please, please help. I've been trying to figure this out for quite awhile now.

I purchased this, hoping it would work, and the plug fits on, kind of, really tight, and doesn't run the flash. :(

Strange, the jack connector in your photo looks the same as mine and it fits fine in my Alienbee strobes. But I wonder why do you want to use this old-fashioned wired sync system? wireless triggers are cheap and they are much more convenient.

It's a sound trigger and a lightning trigger.

And in, looking at the photo, the one in the right fits in your alienbees?
