    Hello,

    I have one of these (along with lots of other bits and pieces)

    http://www.coolcomponents.co.uk/catalog/module-p-714.html

    It is currently inside a large box

    On one side of the board there is a up and over sim card socket.

    I am looking for hopefully something off the shelf that will allow me to plug one end into the existing sim card socket and panel mount the other end on the outside of the box so the user can change the sim card easily without having to open the lid of the box and poke around inside.

    Anyone any ideas?

    Thanks

    So you need a female SIM to male SIM extension cable?

    Why don´t you just buy push-push (or any other) socket and a piece of wire and extend it yourself?

    The standard sim sockets look very fragile for mounting so the user can push a sim in and out through the side of the enclosure

    I have seen those types before...trouble is I need to be able to push the sim through a slot in the side of the case and pull it back out again

    You can make a larger slot in the case and put the edge of the sim slot right to the edge of the case. Then you will have just enough space to push on the card and let it out.

    If that is not possible then I really have no idea what you´re trying to achieve and why you have so many restrictions.
