      Will not fit the Mini RG-59U/RGB

          Radio Shack should pull these off the shelf.
          They do conform to the Mini RG-59U/RGB cable standards for a .146 diameter cable jacket.

          The compression sleeve ID is only .136 and won't even accept the jacket, let alone the jacket with the wire strands pulled back over needed for compression.

              I made sure that I had the correct ends for the correct cable, yet these are so badly manufactured that they will not work. The end where you insert your cable is not big enough to accomodate the cable and the needed shield strand. These ends are a total waste of time and money. If you are in need of ends, I suggest you look elsewhere.

                    DOES NOT FIT STANDARD RG-59U CABLE

                          Useless. Going back to the store. Why have the connectors for MINI RG-59U when they don't have the cable?

                              Package should be more obvious that it only fits the mini cable. Never seen one or heard of one, all my RCA cables are stranded. Read the 59-U which would have been perfect for the application. All other compression fittings for standard RG59-U or RG6-U so a deviation flag would have saved me wasted money and an extra trip for adapters. Instruction measurements are bad, need correction.

                                  Unlike the 278-032 which works perfectly, the 278-037 has horrible art work in manual and can't be made to work correctly no matter WHAT cable I've tried. Very frustrating because it's an EXCELLENT idea.
