How to Use DX Engineering’s F-Connector Tightening Tool

Much of the newer ham radio receiving gear uses F-Connectors. Most everyone is familiar with this type of connector. You find them on the back of your TV set, your PC’s Router, cable modem, DVD recorder and more.

One thing in common with using the F-Connector in these applications is the frustration of trying to get the connector on tight. The other frustration is trying to get a tightly installed connector loose. This is especially difficult when more than one F-Connectors are near each other, making the a standard wrench or pliers nearly impossible to use.
