Customer Questions & Answers

does the klein crimping tool only work with their connectors, or is it universal and can crimp other brands

Asked by: Doug
The tool is not "universal" in the sense that it does not crimp the connector by compressing the collar, it moves the collar towards the end of the connector and this creates a pressure fit that holds the connector to the cable. You can get a sense for how it works by looking at the picture (attached) from the product advertisement. As shown, the connector is not being crimped in the traditional manner (at least, what I consider the "traditional" manner of cable termination for coax and BNC cables). I don't know if other companies make connectors that would be compatible with this method of termination but the ones provided with the kit work very well.

Will this tester work with a barrel on a line an also what is the furthest cable run this tester would be most efficiet

Asked by: Lovvguynyc
Yes, the tester will work if you have connected two cables together with a barrel (female-to-female F-type coax connector). No specifications are given on a maximum distance but since you are just testing for continuity I don't imagine you would run into a limitation.

Coax Installation and Testing Kit with Connector is rated 4.8 out of 5 by 69.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Easy to use, nice tool Really sturdy tool and very easy to use. I used Belkin cable 1694a and this tool plus connectors to redo the cable in my house (about 100 feet, 14 connectors). This was my first time trying this and it went so well I was amazed. My only suggestion is that, used as directed, the stripper doesn't leave enough center connector exposed. However, you can slide back the depth gauge to make it as long as you want. (Then just snip off an excess if it's too long) Once I did that, it was perfect. I would highly recommend this. It does a great job even if you are a novice like me.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Poor quality These are great tools that do their intended purposes... until for no reason whatsoever they fail. I have not had these long and 2 components have already failed. The electronic one failed, typical, since electronics are notoriously built with low quality, and the piece that strips the coax cable. How could this part possibly fail aside from going dull? Mine did not go dull, but it cannot cut properly! How is this possible? I bought a replacement and it worked just fine, but for how much longer?

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good Kit I rewired the coax in our home using quadshield from homedepot and bought this kit to use the klien coax fittings. Everything worked perfectly and I'm very satisfied with the results. I'm sure a professional intaller would use more professional tools but for me, it exceeded my expectations.

Home Depot even gave me the price adjustment after I noticed the price drop after I picked my purchase. Would have been even a better product if a female-to-female adapter could be included for the tester.
