Answer: 
The tool in the kit I purchased will only fit F type connectors. Same for the tester. It does fit other brands, but it would be best to look closely.

Answer: 
The Coax Explorer Tester should work will a barrel on the line, but it does not work with splitters. The maximum cable run for this tester is approximately 1000 ft.

Coax Installation and Testing Kit with Connector is rated 4.8 out of 5 by 64.
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 3 out of 5 by from expected some difference It was not clear to me that this was strictly for F type connections. Most of our cameras are BNC so the tester did not work until I made adapters to fit both ends and the stripper was also only for F type connectors. I did not find an installation kit clearly telling me it was for BNC, So when I first saw it, I expected it to fit both. I was able to use the F type stripper and connectors for some other stuff, but it would be much clearer if A).This kit mentioned that it was F type connectors only and B).there should be a second kit for BNC. I am willing to share the blame, but it was not clear.

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?

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.

Bought this kit because I knew it had everything I needed to get the job done and do it right the first time. Works real well on quad shield and newer cable. So far satisfied with purchase and usability.
