          Comments about RadioShack Indoor/Outdoor Matching Transformer:

          If one gently finger tightens it, it will not break but will not be secure enough. Try to tighten it enough to be secure and it will break! The insides did twist on me but it somehow still worked. I will replace it with another brand.

          That means I will have to lower the antenna (Push-up install) and that is a lot of work and then replace it.

          Buy from another source!!!

          Comments about RadioShack Indoor/Outdoor Matching Transformer:

          Agree with Paul the Handyman's review. Can be hand tightened only, because of the design, and if unscrewing the coax cable becomes necessary later on, the internal connections will likely rotate within the plastic housing and be broken.

              I bought one locally and it was broken out of the package.

              Given the premium price, I expected better.

              Comments about RadioShack Indoor/Outdoor Matching Transformer:

              Converted old antenna from two-wire to coaxial cable... DTV reception went from weak to no signal to GREAT 'In The Green' signal...

              The weather boot doesn't fit over coax cable end... so is only good if putting on your own connector... therefore it is worthless.

              Poor Quality Product

                  Comments about RadioShack Indoor/Outdoor Matching Transformer:

                  The post on the thing turned when trying to tighten the wire connector to it, shearing the thin wire connections inside,making it useless. If you find yourself wondering why you have no reception after you just got through installing this, this would be your culprit. Don't waste your money on junk.
