DX Engineering Coaxial Cable Prep Tools for Crimp Connectors are the easy way to prepare cable ends for RF crimp connectors. These are the tools to use for dual shield cables that require crimp connectors, as well as on single shield cables when you want to use crimp connectors.
When the need arises to install crimp style PL-259, N-Type, or BNC connectors and are preparing 400MAX, 8U, 213U, LMR-400, or even 8X and LMR-240 sized cables, you’ll find these hinged ‘clamp-and-twist’ strippers convenient and so easy to use.
These tools prepare cables for DX Engineering and Amphenol® crimp connectors.
NOT intended for use with look-alike RG-8X cables with soft, rubbery, ‘squirmy’ outer jackets.
Preparing coaxial cable is made easy with DX Engineering’s Coaxial Cable Prep Tools and by following these easy steps:
- Simply place the end of your coax against the internal stop, close the cutter and twist.
- Open the cutter and the cable is cut to the correct measurements to attach the connector.
- Place the coax in the other side of the cutter, close it and withdraw the cable- your coax jacket is now slit for easy removal of the cut portions.
