Does anyone have experience with crimping a two piece BNC connectors on to a RG6 coax cable? I bought few dozen two piece BNC connectors to wire up my plasma TV that only accepts BNC connectors but I can not seem to crimp the BNC connector on to the RG6 securely, it keeps on coming off.

What are you using for a crimper? One thing that I have seen coworkers do the first time they use them is not bring the shield up between the 2 pieces before you crimp it.

Thanks for your advice. I was cutting off all the shielding like if I was crimping the coax. I didn't realize that I needed to put the shielding in between the two pieces. My crimps are coming out perfect now that I know what I am doing.
