The two screws don't fit 100%, the distance of the mounting holes is one or 
two millimeters to long or to short (don't remember), but it worked well 
enough. The screws might be too short if you have old high quality 
connectors with the thicker mounting wings.

the third screw is for locking the cable. there is a moveable plastic piece 
inside the shell that is pressed onto the cable with this screw.

Unfortunately I don't have any pictures here to show you the result.
