          Comments about RadioShack Solderless Male BNC Plug:

          I needed a BNC on the end of some RG-8 cable. The RS twist-on BNCs do not work with RG-8. RG-8 cable, by itself, is slightly too big. However, if you strip off about 1/2" of jacket, leaving braid, you can insert this and it works fine. Works great if you're in a bind.

          p.s. RTFM. Yes, you cut it off flush - you don't strip down to inner conductor!

          Comments about RadioShack Solderless Male BNC Plug:

          I apparently had an RG-58 cable that was too thick for the connector. I was not sure if the center pin should click into the connector or just sit up against the center pin. Needs detailed instructions on how to trim cable. I have used solder connector and solder less connectors in the past with little problem. I would not purchase this product again.

                Comments about RadioShack Solderless Male BNC Plug:

                These are so much easier to install than a standard crimp connector. Basically, cleave the coaxial cable flush. Then, push the connector onto the coax - there's a pin that will contact the central core. Finally, tighten the set screw, which will penetrate the outer sheath and contact the braided shielding.

                I haven't had any problems with the connector coming loose or falling off, or necountered signal distortion using these (measured at 1 GHz bandwidth).
