Questions & Answers

Which connector should I use with 3C-2V cable?

Asked by Russ September 23, 2018

The connectors purchased were: IDEAL, 89-019, 10 pack, F COMPRESSION CONNECTORS, RG6.I believe that the 3C-2V cable is the economical version of a RG6 cable. I purchased the RG6 cable, crimper and connectors from Home Depot to replace 20 year old cable in home for TV & Internet service. The crimper cable & connectors worked great. Made the job very easy.

How to install 90 degrees F type rg6 connector and also stripping cable for the F type 90 connector

Asked by bpatin46 August 18, 2017

Installing an F-Connector To accomplish this, installers will need a coaxial cable crimper, a coaxial cable stripper, and the required number of F-connectors. It is best to use these specially designed tools because they will make the task easier. Look for the size rating on the exterior insulation of the coaxial cable. This will determine the correct setting for the cable-stripping device. Using the right tools and installation technique will ensure a quality signal. Stripping the Wire After running the coaxial cable, make sure that the length is sufficient to reach the intended device and then use the cable stripper to trim the end of the coax cable. Create a smooth, clean cut perpendicular to the cables. Slide the cable into the strippers until it fits snugly inside the chamber. Hold the cable with one hand and rotate the strippers with the other. The goal is to strip back approximately a half-inch of the outer plastic sheathing without damaging the other cable components. Use the tool to cut back approximately one-quarter inch of the braided mesh and plastic insulation while leaving the inner copper wire intact. Snip the end of the solid copper wire to create a 45-degree angle. Fold the exposed braided sheathing material back over the plastic outer layer. Wear gloves to protect fingertips from the sharp edges of the metal braid. Attaching the F-Connector Slide the end of the cable into the rear opening of the F-connector. The front end of the connector has the rotating nut that enables installers to attach the connector and the device. Push the cable forward until the inner plastic insulation is flush with the inner face of the connector. Twist the connector as needed to slide it over the cable. Open the cable crimper and place the rear end of the F-connector in the open jaws. Close the crimper carefully, ensuring that the connector and cable are properly aligned within the tool. Squeeze the handle firmly to secure the connector to the cable. Release the handle and remove the crimping tool. Pull slightly on the end of the connector to ensure that it is securely fastened to the end of the cable. Using more than 30 pounds of force will pull the connector off the cable. Seal the end as tightly as possible, especially if the cable will be used in an outdoor setting. Trim off any excess copper wire that extends past the end of the connector. Repeat the process on the other end of the cable if necessary.

I tried many times and only got it to work once.

Asked by wasssupdutch March 12, 2016

I used Klein Tools branded connectors, that may be a factor. The most important thing is getting the coax cable stripped correctly, I have struggled with that before. Also purchased the Klein coax cable stripper, and pulled back the shield wires so the center conductor fit through the hole in the connector. There are guides on the connector packaging to show how far the center conductor should be exposed. Found that the adjustment screw should be closest to the engraved "F" inside the tool. The "B/R" marking is for BNC connector types. I used an "F" connector for my application. Hope that helps!

Will this tool work with the brand Ideal - BNC Compression Connector

Asked by KitD March 5, 2016

Yes, this tool works with the brand Ideal. I just bought the BNC compression connector and I am happy I bought it since its easy to use and most of all, high quality connection specially for your internet, which is the reason I bought it.

does this work for rg6 cables for tv services? and what else does it put on?

This all metal tool with plastic cover base and handle allows you to use several different types of compression connectors F, BNC and RCA. Simply turn the thumb wheel to the type of connector you want to use. Size markings are engraved into the base and making the adjustment is easy. This simple tool will hold the bottom of the connector while pushing the top of connector without damaging the center wire conductor. Tool works with a variety of different brand connectors and cables RG58, RG 59, MINI-COAX, RG6 AND RG6Q. When not in use a metal clip keeps the handle in the closed position. Package includes instruction card.
