Rated 4.8 out of 5 by 40 reviewers.
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Works great I bought a used motor home and re-do all the TV to add Sat and upgrade the antenna. Made the job easy plus found one bad cable. Life saver November 10, 2015
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Does The Job But... Worked well but my only issue was with the wire cutter. It cut the wire easily however the length gauge did not allow for a cut to sufficient length for the wire to fully extend thru the connector for a good connection with the wall outlet. I had to disengage the length gauge and cut the cable to a longer length to ensure a working connection. Once I figured that out, after ruining several connectors, it worked great. October 20, 2015
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Gets the job done I bought this kit to install coax to my cell phone booster antenna and to have the confidence that the connections were going to be good. The tester's terminator end is female and the kit does not include a male-male adapter. Since most coax cable will have female connectors installed on both ends you would think the kit would include one. I happened to have one so a trip to town was avoided. The tester is a simple continuity tester which means it does not test cable impedance. For simple runs this is not going to be an issue. June 30, 2015
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 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 5.0 out of 5.0 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 5.0 out of 5.0 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 5.0 out of 5.0 by excellent and easy to use i have used old crimpers in the past and this set is light years ahead of those. from the stripper tool that perfectly cuts and strips the end, to the compression fittings and finally testing the line, it all worked smoothly. I was complete in just minutes. Great product April 15, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great Product! This kit is really easy to use. i had no problems using it the first time. June 2, 2015
