    Nice, useful tool

    Overall: 5 out of 5

    This tool handles weatherproof "F" connectors in RG-58, RG-59, and RG-6. I used it on Quad shielded RG-6 exterior cable.

    I had no trouble using up a bunch of different brands of RG-6 Quad weatherproof connectors including RCA, Platinum, and some no-name connectors from the local big box hardware store. I had no difficulty inserting any of the connectors for compression or operating the tool.

    The tool also has dies for BNC and (are you ready for this?) RCA (male presumably) connectors on the same variety of cables. I haven't a clue where to obtain the fittings but it is intriguing. The dies store neatly out of the way on the handle.

    The handle includes a guillotine cutter and a ratchet to hold the tool closed for easier storage.

    The tool seems marvelously well made (so far I've only knocked in a couple dozen or so weatherproof "F" connectors so it's not a definitive test of durability).

    About the only not positive comment I can think of is that the two tabs that swing out to admit the cable and serve as an anvil when compressing are sort of floppy. It would be nicer if they snapped open to admit the cable and snapped shut around the cable to act as an anvil. But that's being unreasonably picky about an otherwise well designed and well made tool.

    As one of the previous reviewers already suggested, don't pass up this tool if you work with compression type weatherproof connectors -- it really is a bargain.

    great deal for the money

    Overall: 5 out of 5

    This tool does the job just fine. The tool is full length and not a compact model like the CP-315 or the SealSmart II for the same price, but quality is good and it works fine.
    I have always purchased top of the line hand tools costing at least 3 times as much so was skeptical. The adapters for different cable types screw onto the handle so just be sure not to lose them. Some crimpers with universal heads like the compact Seal Smart II don't require adapters for the same price.

    Great tool great price

    Overall: 4.5 out of 5

    I was very pleased with the quality of the tool for the price. I like the fact that it's both adjustable and receives all coaxial cable ends. If you are a do it yourselfer like I am then this is one tool that you can afford to have on the shelf.
