Rated 4 out of 5 by from Tight as a ducks ? These are good if you get the preparation right first. Make sure you get the white plastic dielectric pushed right into the centre front of the joint or it will fail. If you are unsure buy a pack of the cheap one to practice on. It pays in the long run.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great connector if used right Very happy once I worked out how to fit it properly. Cut the cable so it has a bit over 1/4 inch of the centre copper core exposed, then 1/4 inch of the white dielectric. Fold the braid back and trim to 1/4 inch long. Cut the foil off the white dielectric. Then the critical part: push the cable *hard* into the connector, so the tube inside the connector pushes into the cable between the braid and the foil. The dielectric should reach just to the hole in the centre of the plug. Now use the compression tool. This squashes the blue plastic so it forms a seal around the sheath, pinching it between the body and the inner tube - this forms the weatherproof seal. The result should be a connector that is weatherproof and impossible to pull off. If necessary trim the centre copper wire so it is just proud of the rim of the plug. I applied silicone grease inside the plug before fitting, to aid in weatherproofing and lubricate the thread. This is a great connector, it feels solid, works smoothly, and looks great.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from OK but not as good as hoped When they go on securely they are fine. the problem is that frequently they do not grip the coax securely and therefore I always test them with a good tug after fitting. About half the time they come off. I found the other compression f connectors are as unreliable too. I have used several different tools to apply them and the Lab Gear tool is about the best of them.
