How about using some bare wire on the male connector?
Fold it over the top, Wrap the bottom at the base of the connector "around the wire you fold over.
Trim as needed. May take some trial and error to get the right fit.
I have been lucky in the past trying the same idea with stripped out threads, before retapping. Wraped bolt/screw threads with some bare wire to make up the differance, in the short term.
Just a thought to try?
