Instructions are not clear enough. Both F connector and cable move outwards when the handle is pressed.

Answer: 
If both the connector and cable are moving outwards, the connector might not be seated properly in the tool’s connector nest or the cable is not fully inserted into the connector before crimping. For more information on the proper use of this compression crimper, please contact Klein Tools Customer Service at 1-800-553-4676.

Answer: 
Yes, this tool can crimp BNC connectors. Be careful to not over-compress the crimper, only compress as far as is necessary to complete the crimp, not all the way down.

Rated 3.5 out of 5 by 20 reviewers.
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great tool to have for RG6 cables I bought this compression tool for making RG6 cables and It worked great for me. Once set it made my job really easy for making perfect. It is very solid tool with rugged construction. I am happy with the quality of cables that I made with it. The hole in the plunger is big and allows you to use it for RCA cables. Nice tool to have March 6, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Works Well and Amazing Build Quality This compression crimper looks and feels like it was built to last! It’s much heavier than I expected yet small, simple to use and adjust. Years ago I used crimpers for coax and telephone/network cables and this is the sturdiest feeling one I’ve held. If you’ve ever rummaged through your granddad’s toolbox or the hand tool section of an antique store and run across something that looked well built, had interesting moving parts, yet you couldn’t figure out what it was for but you just had to have it… that’s what the VDV211-063 reminded me of when I first picked it up. I’ve been running coax from some antennas to bring free HDTV signals to some tvs and I’ve been using the screw on F-type connectors which aren’t that great. After a while some of them losened some of them just seemed to degrade the signal so I wanted to terminate the cables better. I also have issues some times with my satellite wiring and don’t want to wait days for someone to come fix it. To be honest, I didn’t know what a compression connector was when I selected this. I saw “coaxial” and “crimper” and new I needed one. I mean, I’ve seen compression connectors, I just didn’t know what they were. A few years ago I noticed that the satellite guys weren’t using the old hex crimp connectors. Did some reading and it looks like the compression connectors are better than the old hex crimped connectors. They are water tight, more secure and last longer. The Klein VDV211-063 compression crimper makes it easy to start using compression connectors. I’ve been using the F-type connectors for antennas and televisions but there are also compression connectors for BNC and RCA terminations. Should work with most types of coaxial cable as long as the connector works with the cable and the connector fits in the crimper. For different sized cables you may need to tun the back where the cable rests. There are 3 different settings, each one marked with 1, 2 or 3 dots. On the back of the package it tells you which setting is for which cable/connector combination but it's pretty straight forward. It either fits or it doesn't. I tried using the weather proof F-connectors that have a rubber boot at the end and they worked fine but require a little more time and care. It’s hard to get the end of the wire in the plunger hole since you can’t really see it so I found it best to screw the plunger in to have room to fit the connector in the tool. Then while the cable/connector is parallel with the base of the tool start unscrewing the plunger to the appropriate length. If you mess around with it too much, like I did when I was first trying, you can wind up tearing the rubber boot. After a couple of practice ones it became easier. For the standard F-type connectors I used (without the rubber boot) all I had to do was adjust the tool once and didn’t have to worry about it again. January 28, 2014
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Broke in 2 weeks I bought these because I work for cox thinkin they were kleins and ive never had an issue with klein in the past they were a little inconveniant at first with having to lock n unlock them for 11 fittings and switch them to 6 everytime thats what I crimp more often.... but I made due and bout 2 weeks after I bought them the little adjustable screwpiece that compresses the fittings busted off on a job I was not very happy especialy after payin 58dollars and some change. luckily home depots customer service was awesome as always and gave me a full refund back to my card September 25, 2015
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Compression Crimper It works on the larger cables which is what I needed it for and the smaller ones too. September 29, 2015
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by The Last Crimper You'll Buy I looked at all the cheaper ones, but they seemed a bit fragile. This tool does the trick quite well, as the crimps I made with it were positive and really held on tight. It's worth the extra money, in my opinion. July 3, 2015
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Good universal compression crimper Easy to use, great build quality.. A bit pricey for what it does, especially if you only have a few crimps to make -- but the flipside is you are not restricted to using a specific brand of connector with it. Makes a solid crimp on the connector, and is adjustable to accomodate whatever connectors you decide to use. Instructions could have been slightly clearer, but otherwise the tool itself is great.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by after using these I had to get my own I install broadcast systems and audio video systems for a living. I was installing a broadcast studio and we needed to crimp on some 50 Ohm connectors for the over the air local broadcast. I didn't have my normal crimpers because I didn't know we were doing antenna work. We picked up these crimpers and they were a dream to use compared to my 10 year old set. These will do all different size cable and all different type of connectors. We purchased these to do the larger RG-11 cable and they crimped on the connectors like a hot knife through butter. I had to get myself a pair of these for side jobs installing home theater systems. These are worth the money!! Love them. December 29, 2013
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Do not pay attention to the low ratings, this is a great product I have used many linear crimpers over the years and with the exception of tools specifically made for one manufactures connectors, these Klein are the best. Lot of options and adjustability, so they work with most brands of linear compression ends. Pay no attention to the 1 star ratings. These people were obviously using them wrong or improperly stripping the cable. Once properly crimped, the connectors will never pull off the end of the cable. June 12, 2014
