    Great crimper, but very little wiggle room
    Great crimper, but buyer beware the socket where you put the RG6 Connector is really snug, and offers very little wiggle room in terms of length or width.

    While this is a non-issue with standard RG6 Type Connectors, it will not fit oversized RG6 connectors like product 8693 due to its waterproofing rubber boot and wider knob.

    I have several crimpers, and found that this was the only one that wouldn't accommodate the larger size.

    You could argue that a tighter fit is desirable, but at least for me, I wish it offered a bit more wiggle room.

    Great tool
    I purchased this tool to create some custom length TV cables. The tool is extremely easy to use just put the compression fitting onto the cable, insert it into the tool and give it a squeeze.

    It is very well constructed and feels solid in your hands. It has ratcheting action so if you need to adjust your grip on the tool, it will keep the compression fitting and cable secure.

    To see this tool in action, have a view of the YouTube video attached.

    PROS: Solid construction
    Easy to use
    Cable holder

    CONS: None

    CONS: None

    I have nothing negative to say about this product. It works fabulously, is quite self-explanatory (a video is available for additional instruction), and performs consistently.

    Make sure you check your cable after installation as, depending on the connector, it may in some cases shift slightly. No big deal and easy to adjust.

    PROS: Works perfectly, every time.
    Excellent price.

    CONS: None.

    The BEST
    This is the best compression tool I have used. Easy to compress, and easy to remove once done. Cable never gets stuck either. 10 out of 10.

    Great Tool!!
    This tool worked very well and very easy. I used 2977 connectors and they all went on with out any issue. I would recommend this to anyone or buying them at a brick and mortar store.
