Exclamation Please help with wire connector repair

I have some SR7 Plus shifters that need new connectors installed and I cannot seem to find which connector I need. I have done a lot of reading and it seems that everyone has a different answer. Does anyone know which one I need? Looks Like a modular phone connector, but it is smaller. I've heard RJ22, RJ11, etc.

Will your home phone cord plug into it? If it does it is an rj-11.

No. It is smaller than that.

If you still have an old, corded phone laying around, look at the connector that goes to the handset from the coiled cord of the phone. If it's the same, it's simply a 4P4C (oftentimes called an RJ22 or an RJ9).

RJ9 or "handset" connector. It only has 4 total slots. The next larger connector has 6 slots even though they mostly only have 4 pins, or conductors, in them.

Looks like it is the same as the coiled handset cord. I bought some modular handset connectors but they were the same size as the regular phone line type (too big). Can't seem to find the smaller size that I need in a store. Guess I'll have to order them online.
