Philex Coaxial F-Plug Pack of 10
Philex Coaxial F-Plug Pack
Awful quality - only two out of ten plugs in the pack had been manufactured correctly - they would not screw onto sockets - I assume they had been poorly manufactured - returned to store for replacements and only a couple of of these were of a satisfactory standard - third pack off the shelf were all OK 10/10 but the job I was doing had already taken me several times longer than anticipated - I suggest if you buy these, check them out with other equipment before you need to use them in a small confined place or hot dusty loft like what happened to me

So easy to use and takes only seconds to fit, very little mess.

Easy to use.
I had no idea you could get these as a screw on, as opposed to crimped on. They are exceptionally easy to use but, make sure you use them on thick co-axial cable. If it is the cheaper, thin cable the F-connectors will not grip on. Otherwise, very impressed with these.

Poor threads and not 11mm AF.
All 10 front threads connecting to wall plates / sat boxes are way too tight so couldn't be done up for fear of ripping the sockets off. This leaves the rear piece loose and results in a poor connection so the LNB supply/control voltage drops out from time to time.
11mm spanners don't fit as these measured 10.4mm to 10.6mm across flats!
They're cheap, not to be mistaken for low cost or great value though as they need replacing.
Back to the web to order more 49p Combicon 5.1, more costly but so far ahead in quality, are 11mm and painless to fit.
