            For decades, I always knew that you need the crimping pliers sold at Radio Shack to install the F- connectors. Radio Shack also sells a t shaped twist on connector for the sore thumbs, all you had to do was ask in the store.

              I read the other reviews. I feel sorry for the guys that couldn't receive support from the local managers. The product is fine when one knows how to install it properly. I always use gold connectors, and they are hard to fine elsewhere; Radio Shack is a good source. Long time experience in this field.

                Comments about RadioShack Crimp-On Type "F" Connector for Coax Cable RG-6QS:

                I added an VU-190 antenna (cat#15-2156) to my house and had to cut a 100 foot box of RG-6QS (cat#15-1559) cable in half so that I could put a splitter in my attic. I bought these to put on the bare ends of the coax cable because they were labeled RG6-QS, but they did not fit. It appeared that the hole in the center was too small to fit over the 2nd aluminum foil jacket, so I went back into the store thinking that I might have bought the wrong ends. The "Manager" proceeded to tell me that I needed a screw on end gave me a bunch of bad advice. I knew that he was was telling me was wrong so looked elsewhere and found ends that also looked the same. After searching at several other retailers I was not able to find ends that looked any different than these so I used Google and searched for "how to install ends on Coax cable". I found the following:[...] which helped me solve my problem. Once I knew that you had to cut off the braided wire and 2nd layer of foil, I was able to put the ends on correctly it worked great (although I still had to use a lot of force get he ends on the cable all the way. I only gave this product 4 stars because RadioShack needs to train their employees & Managers better so that they can help their customers when they have questions about the products that they sell. I wasted a lot of time looking elsewhere because a RS Manager wasn't able to help me with a question about one of their core products.

                      This product need some work, sliding it onto the cable is very difficult and I have a sore thumb with a big blister to prove it. I even used vasoline on the cable, it helped a little. It seems lately that products made in China are usually inferior, perhaps this is the problem. The inside dimensions of the connector should be worked on.
