Answer

The Klein Tools VDV002-818 Coax Installation and Testing Kit contains push on F connectors (model # VDV812-606) that meet all requirements for F connector interface. There is also a stripper (model # VDV110-061) that works with RG59, RG6 and RG6Q coax cable. The tester (model # VDV512-057) works with F connectors. The compact compression crimper (model # VDV212-008-SEN) crimps compression F-connectors to coaxial cable.

Will this tester work with a barrel on a line an also what is the furthest cable run this tester would be most efficiet

Asked by Lovvguynyc April 16, 2016

Answers

Yes, the tester should work through a barrel connector as long as the actual terminal ends have continuity and the barrel is not damaged. You cannot touch the inner core with the outside conductor. As for the distance, I tested a connection which is probably 50 ft and it worked. I'm sure you can even surpass that if you have good connections.

does the klein crimping tool only work with their connectors, or is it universal and can crimp other brands

Asked by Doug October 11, 2014

Answers

Works on some other brands as well, but it is not a crimping tool. Works only on compression type fittings which is what is the standard these days.

The stripper and crimper both work great. However, the kit I received came with 6 F-connectors, not 10 as stated in the product description. Also, the testing tool is impossible to use without a female-to-female F-coupler, which this kit doesn't include. The red remote has a slip-on male connector, which can't be attached to the male connector on your coaxial cable.

I'm installing an OTA (broadcast) TV antenna and needed an RG6 quad-shield cutter and crimper. I purchased a cheap coax tool on an online auction site. Took 3 weeks to arrive from China and was useless, couldn't crimp RG6 at all, just RG-59. This was never mentioned in the auction details and could barely be read in the half-english instruction manual. I threw it in the trash and yelled, "I'm getting a Klein!" I ordered it online at homedepot.com and picked up in my local store. Never regretted it for a minute. I read the instructions and it was a breeze, done several dozen crimps now with no problems. If the cutter wears out I'll buy another one, compared with the frustration of other cheap coax tools it's worth the price. I'm already on my third pack of RG6 connectors. I also perform basic cabling work so I'm getting the Klein BNC connectors. Awesome tool!

This is perfect if you have to replace a F connector for RG6/6Q Coax cable and you don't have a stripper,crimper or tester. Great kit for a reasonable price although 10 connectors is a bit much for those who are simply replacing/repairing 1 or 2 cables max. Worked great for me. User experience may vary.

Excellent quality tool set, exactly what I needed to get up and running! Klein Tools has a well-earned reputation for quality and this kit lives up to the standard. The tester will save you from a lot of frustration as you try to trace out cables. Great quality, great price!

Did not like the product. Didn't crimp or cut the coax well. I think it is best to use the screw on connectors than this.
