NeoPixel strip #4560. You do not have a cross-reference to what I think are the correct connectors for the NeoPixel strips, the JST-SM series. I think. Maybe. All the NeoPixel strips that have connectors (or may have connectors) should reference these connectors. I ended up with a collection of the wrong JST connectors. But I'm having to guess, and I guessed wrong.

Nothing, yet. Perhaps I will have the correct connector in five days.

Yep, they should be JST-SM, and then just count the pins. Most NeoPixel strips are 2pin - two separate pig-tails for power and signal. The PID 4560 NeoPixel strip is one of the few that is 3 pin. So this should work:

Counting pins is easy. Knowing that is JST-SM requires psychic powers. Also, the answer would be a lot more useful if the part were in stock. But COVID is Not Our Friend for inventory management, so I can forgive this.
