Installed perfectly on my RG6 coax.

It is very important to use a proper tool for striping the cable and crimping the connector.

A search on U-tube was very helpful and answered my questions.

I am an independent contractor installing both major satellite companies in the US and this is the only connector approved by both of them. I like to buy them on Amazon for less than I get them from my local supplier. They are easy to install and last forever if you take care to tighten them correctly (30 inch pounds of torque). I have installed thousands of these in all sorts of conditions. Since they are universal you can use them on standard RG6 or quad shield without any trouble. They slide on easy and never pull off. It is very important to use a proper tool for striping the cable and crimping the connector. I use theCablePrep Prep Tool for RG59 and RG6 Connectorsfor stripping and it gives me perfect results all the time. For crimping the manufacturer recommends using a crimper similar to this -Professional Compression Crimping Tool [HT-H548A3]. For easier installation I often use this connector instead PPC EX6XLWS AquaTight RG-6 Connectors, qty 50. As you can see by the model number it is exactly the same except it has an easier to use design. This has the recommended weather boot already attached to it and it has a large burled end to make it easier to hand tighten the fitting. I find it comes in handy behind the TV or the VCR where you usually need the hands of a 6 year old to screw in the connector. What I do is tear of the rubber part and now I have a easy to screw on cable. There is a lot more I can tell about this connection but I think this is enough to help.

Lots of people like these connectors. (It's actually mildly disturbing how excited so many people get about coax connectors.) I am giving it five stars, but there are a few things you need to know before buying these:

1. These are exterior-grade, high-quality connectors. You might not need something with this level of quality. I don't regret getting them, but if you don't really care, then take that into consideration. (Also, a digital signal, such as the one from FIOS, shouldn't need a better connector, although an analog signal might.)

2. They are significantly longer than the cheap connectors that my cable company uses. If your cable socket is visible, the cable will stick even further out of the wall. If your cable outlet is behind a cabinet, you might have to move the cabinet out further.

3. You will need a tool that costs at least $25 to crimp the connectors to cables. I did not know that, and had to buy http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B0042PNZM4 since I did not have the right tool.

None of these facts are deal-breakers for me, and I would probably have gotten these anyway, but I would have liked to know that these connectors required a $12 cutting/stripping tool and a $25 crimping tool to make them work. Figure that into your cost-benefit analysis about whether or not you want to make your own cables.

I am a D-I-Y guy not a professional.
This tool (ideal compression tool 30-603) works perfectly for installing terminal connectors on coaxial cable. I have previously only used the twist-on variety and have been disappointed on several occasions. The main reason that the other twist on connectors have come up short is simple. They come off. That is exactly what you don't want to happen especially when you are installing cable in to walls, attics or other tight and out of the way places.

I hear people swear that these compression fittings will not come off. So far I believe them.
I don't even like to think about the other twist on connectors any more. I feel embarrassed that I actually used those sorry things. Had I known about the higher quality of the finished work I would have crossed over years ago.
I hear that these compression fitting out perform the 6 sided crimp-on type as well.
The down side is that you will have to buy a tool.
I purchased the ideal compression tool 30-603. Pardon the pun but it is "ideal".
I compare it to me driving a stick shift all my life and switching to an automatic transmission. I just get a good feeling about it.

Just read and follow the instructions and you will be as proud as I am about this discovery.

Update: I am having trouble getting these connectors to go in RG6 Quad cable. Without getting out my micrometer I believe that this quad cable may exceed the capability of these connectors.
Okay so I got out my micrometer and measured .2527 inches on the quad shield cable. That makes me guess that one quarter inch is going to be the thickest cable acceptable.
I think the solution will be a simple one. In order to make these connectors fit my quad shield cable I will have to cut/trim back 1/2 inch of the outer jacket to make up for the double braids thickness. This should give me enough clearance to be able to push the cable all of the way home.

I purchased these connectors along with 1000 ft of quad shielded RG6 (Steren 200-937BK 1000 feet RG6 Ul/cm Quadsld Coax Cable) for wiring a new house. The first thing I noticed when practicing on a piece of coax was that after prepping the coax and pushing it in I couldn't get it all the way in. The quad shield was too thick to properly push it to where it needed to go. I read another review that said the only way they could get it to work with the quad shield RG6 was to strip the jacket back about a half-inch and then push it through. I followed these instructions and it worked perfectly.

The tools I used to do this were as follows:
Cable stripper - Klein Tools VDV110061 Coax Cable Stripper --- this strips it down to two levels, one to the copper core (1/4-inch exposed) and to the inner shield on quad shield (1/4-inch exposed)- the only problem is that you need to strip it down another additional 1/4-inch down to the inner shield to put the connector on
Compression tool - Klein Tools VDV211-048 Compression Crimper - Compact, Multi-Connector --- super easy to use and didn't cost too much

Things I would recommend:
1. Watch videos on Youtube to see how prep your coax
2. If using quad shield RG6 strip the black jacket and the outer layers of shield back about 1/2-inch
3. Practice on some small pieces of coax
4. Use a comprssion tool...they are not too expensive and will do a better job than pliers
