I have an ignorant/dumb question about coax cables

First off, if this is the wrong forum please delete and I apologize.

I just rearranged my room and now the coax cable won't stretch far enough to screw into my Xfinity cable box. So now I will drill a hole through the floor to bring the cable up through the basement closer to the box... but the current cable that's installed still won't stretch far enough, obviously....

SO, my question is, is there just some sort of coax extension cable I can get with the connectors already on, so I can screw one end into my existing coax cable, and the other end into the cable box? Sorry I know this is a really dumb question.

A coax barrel connector would do

Onkyo TX RZ830, Chane 3600, AudioSource AMP100VS, XBox One X, Panasonic DMP-UB900, NVIDIA Shield, D-Link 16-Port Gigabit Switch, Caavo, Control Center, 2 x JBL Studio 590 Mains, 1 x JBL Studio 520C Center, 4 x KEF Q100's Surrounds, 4 x RSL C34E's ATMOS, 4 x Chane SBE-118's

+1. I've used them in the past and have not noticed and signal degradation.
