Default Verdado Data Cable Rigging

I am rigging a tower on my bay boat and have run into a small issue. When I went to run the Verado data cable I found that it does not fit through the tower tubing.

Has anyone ever taken apart the plug on the end? Common sense says it was put together, it can be taken apart and put back together. I just want to check before I start trying to pull this plug off the end.

Here are a couple pictures of what I am referring to.

I think easier would be to cut insulator back and snip wires then heat shrink ea wire. Those pin harness tend to not like to go back together easy. If u break it then you are stuck buying another data cable.
Are you running two stations or just the one?

That does seem easier than messing with plug.

There are two stations. I ran into this issue when routing the upper to the lower.

They ran into this rigging my tower. I believe Merc or someone cam up with a way to take off one of the ends. I think it can be done. Hopefully someone will be along with the how to shortly.

I've done it hundreds of times, mere sells a depinning tool for the ends. comes apart very easily. make sure you have a manual to re-assemble it.

Just looked it up online. Thanks. I am going to call around to the local dealers tomorrow to see if I can get one from them, if not I will order it.
