Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very good after setting up. I've used this tool for about 12 months now. Way better than the cheap ones, but do bare in mind that labgear don't make the bnc and rca connectors anymore - so your mileage may vary with this tool. Also, mine was blue and black, not orange. I've used labgear f type fittings and other similar brands, they all work after a little adjustment on the main compression bit. It just screws up and down, allowing you to fine tune to the length of the plug you use. I've used rg59, rg6, pf100 and nx100 cables, all successfully and easily. I would advise a couple of practice attempts first to fine tune, and always make sure to prepare your cable properly. I use a rotary cable stripper which cuts the shielding etc all in one action - recommended if doing more than two ends! Be gentle when using it, I've had a couple of plugs break while compressing - entirely down to me, but it can happen. Overall, excellent after setting up and fine tuning for the plugs you are using.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Works well Not used one of these before, but worked well on each compression connector without problems, giving a firm fitting. Seems fairly robust. Bit pricey for occasional use.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from faulty bought Labgear, F connectors, this compression tool and aerial amp to try and ensure a good connection. made sure I have signal runs of cable throughout... mangled a couple of connectors before realising the problem was the tool. contacted Labgear who agreed it was faulty.

Is this suitable for use with WF65 shotgun cable?

Asked by: csmith848
The Tool as is will only compress the larger diameter RG6/PF100 style cables.

Hi ...I bought this Labgear compression tool today to crimp f connectors. It did a wonderful job but is missing the blade for the inbuilt cable cutter. The two small threaded holes are there but no blade. Please can you advise

Asked by: Solidbob
The tool is supplied complete, so I'm not sure on cutting blades.

Can this be used with non-labgear fittings?

I've had this tool for a while now, but have only used the indoor labgear f-type fittings with it. Can this tool be used with other brands of compression fitting (of the same type)? e.g. "cablecon" or "vision" brands?
Asked by: Davegorman
It should be possible to use other manufacturers fittings as long as the design is the same.
