Rated 4.9 out of 5 by 32 reviewers.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Solid construction, simple to use, excellent results This coax kit is a great starting set for creating solid coax cables. The stripper is simple an easy to use and does an excellent job. The compression tool is so straightforward and the connectors so intuitive that it is practically impossible to install a bad connector. I made five cables in a few minutes and they are in active use in my AV system with no problems. The only issue I have is with the tester, because I am color red/green color blind and the bad vs. good indicator is green for good, red for bad. I would prefer separate LEDs for the indicator status. September 2, 2014
Rated 4 out of 5 by Should have been patient!!! I found out the day my cable company came to do my install that they only brought the service into the house and not to my TV. I was in a pinch and needed TV & Internet ASAP. I bought the crimp connectors & crimp tool (what a waste of money!!!) I SHOULD HAVE WAITED THE EXTRA FEW DAYS OF NO TV AND BOUGHT THIS KIT!!! This is well worth every penny. The crimp connections I originally bought took over an hour to install, THESE WENT ON IN SECONDS!!! I replaced every crimp connection I installed less then 2 weeks ago with these. WOW, WHAT A HUGE DIFFERENCE. September 10, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Awesome Kit First off, I've never crimped a coax connection in my life. I ordered the kit because I wanted to run exact length of cable to my wall mounted tv's. I made the connections I needed within minutes of opening the package. As a matter of fact, I think it took me longer to open the package than it did to make the connections. I did watch a couple of YouTube videos on how to use the tools but that was all the instruction I had. This kit was easy to use and is high quality as expected from Klein Tools. I highly recommend this kit. September 27, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Does what it's suppose to Easy to use. Bought this for my assistant and he's happy with it. Just wish it came with a case to keep things in one place. October 21, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Best kit available I have installed coax and connectors for over 15 years. This kit and the Klien connectors are brilliant, never settle for less. The connectors are special and proprietary but are the easiest, fastest I have ever used and guarantee a permanant, solid connection. I have purchased hundreds of dollars of 'approved' connectors and associated tools. This is the only set I have found that I will ever use again. Spend the extra couple pennies for the Klien connectors and simplify your life. June 17, 2014
