I love me klein tools, but I cant stand these push/twist-on coax barrels. They will either come off quickly, or just be so expensive if you plan to terminate alot of cables. There are ten jacks in my house, and the last owners used twist barrels...the rg6 cables just fell out of them and out of the splitter downstairs!

Id get this just for the tracer. But then I would invest in a decent compression crimper and a box of cheap barrels from ebay.

I agree. You're better off using compression tools for coaxial than the twist ons.

I'm buying more for the tester than the twist on tool.

The coax cable stripper in this bundle works very well, we use it with compression connectors at work.

Great deal on the stripper and tester alone. The connectors are garbage though.

Compression crimp all the way. When I did all the cabling for my house and a few others in my family I tried both push on and compression. You have to try really damn hard to get a compression fitting off.

I was told by a tech that the crimped connectors attenuate and corrupt digital signal, and that the push on is the best way to go.

You're buying this for the tools like the Tester.

Throw the push on connectors in the garbage where they belong. You waste way more time when they eventually just pull off. As others said go for compression.

Hard pass on this after reading reviews, battery cannot be changed in tester and tester shown is incorrect.

that's because the electron flow gets confused on compressed copper wire
