Can anyone confirm connector diameter of Ruipro?

Hi: Looking at purchasing the the Ruipro fiber cable, but need to know what size hole is needed for it to pass through (need to drill through a stud). Can someone pass on the diameter of the connector?

If you're drilling thru a stud I'd install a 1.5" - 2.0" conduit and then run the cable thru that. The only way to "future proof" in-wall cable installations is with the use of a conduit. Video standards are becoming more demanding in their cabling needs and if you ever need to replace an optical cable, or any cable for that matter, having it installed in a conduit will make that so much easier. It's also easier to control bend radius which may affect your signal. I'd thoroughly check out the cable before installing it just to make sure that you received a good cable and that it meets your expectations.

Received a quick response from their tech supprot. Width is 18.72 mm at the widest, so pretty narrow. Nice!
