I've been using the CablePro compression tool & fittings for over a year now, and I can't say that I'm happy with it. I feel that their RG6Q fitting is rather tight when it comes to placing it on the RG6Q cable. I've attached a picture of the stripper I'm using.


What coax stripper/connectors/tool do you use, and feel works well? I'm considering the Snap-n-Seal from Thomas & Betts, as that is what the local cable company uses, and seems to hold up well.


Any recommendations?


Thanks,

Shane

I use the blue S-N-S tool http://www.icmcorp.net/CablePro_Compression_Tools.htm


and the CablePro compression crimper you mention both. True, it is tight using quad shielded fittings with the large tool. Adelphia uses blue-band S-n-S as does their "@home" broadband team. Welcome to the forum.

boykster,

I purchased the Ideal (the brand name) coax stripper from HD. I think it was around $20. It's a two step process, but I'm very happy with the results it produces on RG6Q. I rarely ever have to clean up the ends.
