    Having never worked with fiber I did a very stupid thing today. I
    plugged in the SC cable not respecting the notches on the transceiver
    and cracked the perimeter housing. Please don't flame me, I realize it
    was a stupid thing to do.

    My question is:

    Will the cracked external plastic perimeter housing affect the
    connection adversly? Will the transeiver still work? Is the housing
    simply there as a means of properly respecting polarity or does it
    play a role in securing the SC patch cord to transceiver?

    I noticed that the cable still plugs in very snug despite the breakage
    I caused.

    it's just for securing the patch cord.

    you should however check on your interface to see if there are errors or
    carrier loss.

    maybe a not with "do not touch" would help :)
