Answer: 
Maybe. You don't 'crimp' them, but rather press(slide) a sleeve axially that compresses a tapered plastic sleeve for grip. There are several grades of tools to install these connectors. I bought the cheap one and it works fine. if you only have one or two to install, you might be able to use a pair of linesman pliers or adjustable wrench to slide the compression sleeve into place.

Answer: 
Any Coaxial Compression tool should work. I have a Belden Compression Tool that I picked up from a different store and I had no issues installing these connectors. Home Depot carries a few Klein Compression tools that should do the job nicely as well.

Answer: 
You would need a compression tool that is able to handle terminate compression fitting. Klein, FLuke, and other companies sell them but its your preference on which one you would like to buy.

Answer: 
Yes, a Compression Crimper is needed to crimp these connectors. Klein Tools VDV211063 and VDV211048 are two different Crimpers available at The Home Depot.
Another option available at The Home Depot is the Klein Tools VDV002820 Coax Quick Install and Test Kit with Push-on Connectors that do not require a Crimping tool.

Rated 4.6 out of 5 by 20 reviewers.
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Quick installation connector It worked like a champ!!! Easy install with Kline tool July 19, 2016
Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Didn't work for me Easy installation, especially with a rotary cable stripper. It could be the cable, but these connectors didn't hold well. They rely on a plastic compression sleeve that is supposed to grip the outer cable sheath, but doesn't hold well on my cable (plastic on plastic). I will have to try them on another brand of cable, but I would rather see a metal on plastic grip. July 1, 2016
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Don't Buy Unless Your Compression Tool is Klein Bought a box of these and couldn't get them to work with my Thomas & Betts compression tool. Home Depot used to carry T&B, not sure why they don't. I couldn't get them to compress and my tool would start to strip the out metal sleeve off. I also tried Ideal compression fittings but they won't compress either. May 17, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Easiest RG-6 Compression Connectors I've used yet I had been fighting with another brand of RG-6 connectors and after wasting two connectors I did some research and found these. I picked up a package of 10 from Home Depot and I'm glad I did. I was able to finish my cable runs with no issues on the first try with these connectors. I will definitely be using these connectors going forward with all my coax work. April 18, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Pro Grade Quality Connectors I used these Klein RG-6 connectors throughout my home during a complete re-wire of my cable and internet lines. I ran two lines of RG-6 quad-shield coax cable to each bedroom and to the living room as well, almost 600 feet total of cable was used. I used about 40 of these connectors for the entire job and couldn't be happier. They are higher quality than the ones the cable company used to install my system, and are very easy to install. I highly recommend these connectors for a professional grade installation. May 21, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Good quality Easy to install with the right tool. Reasonable priced. July 28, 2015
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Just Love it. :) I would tell all of my friends n would but another if I every need one again! :) May 12, 2015
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Work really good. These connectors work way better than the other compression connectors I have used. I wish they were for sale in the store. If you are doing a coax project and can plan slightly ahead, order and use these - they are so much better and easier to use than what they currently carry in the store. April 22, 2015
