These connectors are by far easier to manage due to the unique one piece design making it a breeze to crimp.
Pros: These connectors create a nice tight stable connection. I do not worry about these connectors coming loose after being crimped on.Cons: I am not aware of any cons at this time.Other:
Pros: Well madeCons: No instructions informing what length to strip and length of copper core...no spec sheet supplied. Although well made, it is up to end user to take time to figure out stripping dimensions for coax. Other: Because no spec sheet included we switched to different brand with exact lengths and even diagram on the packaging. No guess work, no waste...each connector a perfect install.
Terribly sorry about the trouble that you had with those. The termination guide is on the product page for those connectors on our site, an in our Learning Center. If you would like to set up your existing plugs for a return or an exchange let me know.
Pros: Solid feel. Pretty easy to stuff onto the end of the coax cable.Cons: Unique design with extra Teflon insert around the center pin does not work with my Klein compression tool. Unfortunately the ratcheting crimp tool recommended by this website looks like a complete disaster.Other: Stuck trying to decide whether to throw these away and spend another $1 each for Klein tips, or chance another $30 for a new freaky looking compression tool that may or may not work either. Decisions, decisions !
The compression tool that we carry works just fine with the compression heads that we carry, without that tool you may have some trouble terminating those.
