    Increased OTA channels

    During the winter months, I was picking up over 40 channels OTA from my antenna in the attic and I am about 60 miles to the nearest transmission antenna. Then summer came rolling around and I was only receiving about 20 channels. After numerous attic antenna adjustments, I was able to determine that the connector from the attic antenna to the house coaxial wire was not holding. I bought these and BOOM! OVER 40 CHANNELS AGAIN. Installing these were SUPER SIMPLE. Trim coaxial, remove about half inch of the protected cover on the coaxial, expose the next layer, braided coaxial and then twist on the RJ6 connectors. Took me less than 1 minute to install.

    Easy way to make custom length cables!

    The last time I had to make a custom length coaxial cable I needed a couple of special tools. This time I was shown these simple twist-on gold connectors by a BestBuy agent and am extremely pleased with the results. Anyone can do it! You basically need a wire cutter and knife of any kind. I used my pen-knife! Go for it. My installation looks “almost” professional!

    What a wonderful twist-on connector

    This twist-on connector is quite swell! While I did not research this product as extensively as I normally do for say, a paper clip, I believe I lucked out on this gem. Much thanks to the sales associate who pointed me in the direction of this product. While it was the only choice I had in terms of coax connectors, I am certain I made the correct decision.

    Would have preferred a crimp-on connector, but this was the only one available at the store I went to. It worked all right, but did not seem to make as reliable a connection as the crimped connectors I've used previously. Easy to install although I did have to leave more than the 1/4" wire specified by the instructions for a good connection.

    Bought this as a quick cheap fix . Surprisingly it worked pretty well. If this were to be used as a inside fix I would not hesitate to use them . I would not however use this for a outside application or say high up on a antenna. If it were to come apart it would cause you more work . Bottom line good quick inside fix .

    Paired this with an inline connector after accidentally cutting my mother's cable to her satellite dish. Rather than run a whole new line, this was a quick and easy fix with no detectable degradation. It took no more than a couple of minutes to prepare the line and connect. Got it all done before my mom returned from the grocery store!

    City workers had badly damaged the internet cable wire in my backyard. I used these connectors along with a coupler to "restitch" the coax wire.

    these work great. they fit very tightly and reduce signal loss as compared to some of the others that i've purchased from the big online seller of everything. Makes it really nice to be able to cut an existing coax cable to exact length and not have to coil and tie-wrap dozens of feet of extra cable.

    Had a cable that had been cut off and I really didn't want to have to rerun the cord through my awning and attic. Found these little guys and they worked like a charm! They are cheap and do exactly what they say they'll do. Couldn't ask for more!

    Great fix for dog chewed cable

    TV picture deteriorated. After several days of trying to adjust the TV, it was discovered our new puppy had chewed on the cable. Purchased a new cable but salvaged the old. Cut off the chewed part and put on the new connectors. Easy to do. Now I have two usable shorter cables.

    The end of my coax cable was damaged and this made a much easier and cheaper alternative way of repairing than replacing the entire cable. Very simple install and the cable was repaired.

    These screw down onto a coaxial cable if you need to create a cable from scratch or replace an end on one you already have. They are extremely convenient and stuck with the stable even when slight pressure was applied.

    I already had cable connections in my apartment but was missing these pieces. The staff at best buy helped me find what I needed in the store and told me exactly what I needed to do to get it all connected. It was just as easy as they said it would be.

    I needed a connector because I was moving our cable service from one side of our living room to the opposite side. This connector appears to work adequately. It's on firmly and would not simply pull off when I tugged on it.

    I was concerned that this would be difficult to install but, it really went quite easy. Just take your time cutting off the wire insulation before you start. I used a knife because I did not have a proper till but, I only had one cable to prepare.

    Worked for my cable splice, a year later the cable guy came out and of course said they were junk! I could not tell any difference in what he did and what I did in internet performance or picture quality!

    I still don't feel that the coax is secure

    I had a loose cable connection on the back of my TV, so I replaced it with this product. The original had been crimped on, this product screwed on, and I don't feel it is as secure, and might come off or come loose if the TV is moved.

    I was dubious about these connectors, thinking they would not fasten well to the cable. Happily they held well and I could run the cable to precisely the right length.

    The twist on connector makes cabling simple! Much better than the crimp on I've used in the past. Make sure you peel the foil insulation down correctly, instructions come with the connectors.

    Good price, good quality. BUT- I ended up getting a kit on AMAZON to terminate the ends, including the tool since the cable was older.
