Help with RF-602 on K-r

Hey folks,
Wondering if anyone can help me with this. Bought an RF-602 to try some strobist stuff, but I have a feeling the hot shoe connection on the transmitter (RF-600TX), is the wrong type for my K-r. Transmitter and reciever are on the same channels, and the test button is working fine - for half press (green led), and full (red led).

On the camera? No go.

The transmitter I have looks like this:

With various ebay listings/image showing this as the correct shoe for Pentax K10D, *ist, bla bla, I assumed it would work.

Any idea's folks? Do I need a specific setting on camera to force it? Different hot-shoe type? Is it just broken?

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

What shutterspeed are you using? If youre shooting over max sync speed nothing happens.

Sync speed for the K-r is 1/180. If you have your EV steps set to 1/3 you'll only be able to go up to 160 as the next stop is 1/200. To get 1/180, switch the EV step to 1/2 stops rather than 1/3 stops.
