How to Crimp a F-Connector
The below steps will show you how to crimp a F-Connector to a coaxial cable.
Trim cable as shown using a stripping tool. Trim center conductor end at 45-degree angle.
Fold braid back
*NOTE: for quad shield cable cut off first foil and fold back second braid.
Push connector onto cable twisting in a clockwise and counter-clockwise direction until cable dielectric is flush with connector mandrel face.
Make sure "F" die head is in crimp tool.
Nest cable and connector into crimp tool
