How to Strip Back a Coaxial Satellite TV Cable 

Tools:        Snips

Equipment: RG6 Satellite Cable

 

  1. Using a snips pare back 20mm from the end of the RG6 cable 
  2. wrap the earth cable clockwise around the base of the cable
  3. Cut off the exposed silver foil
  4. Cut back the white foam to leave 5-10mm gap of exposed foam between the earth and core cables
  5. Leave 10-15mm of the central copper core expose

How to Put on an F Connector

Tools:        Snips

Equipment:  RG6 Satellite Cable, 'F'-Connector

  1. Using a snips pare back 20mm from the end of the RG6 cable 
  2. wrap the earth cable clockwise around the base of the cable
  3. Cut off the exposed silver foil
  4. Cut back the white foam to leave 5-10mm gap of exposed foam between the earth and core cables
  5. Screw the 'F' connector onto the cable in a clockwise manner until it is firmly held
  6. Use snips to cut the copper core wire so that it is 3mm above the top of the connector

How to Put on Coax Connector

Tools:        Snips

Equipment:  RG6 Satellite Cable, Coax connector

 

  1. Using a snips pare back 20mm from the end of the RG6 cable 
  2. wrap the earth cable clockwise around the base of the cable
  3. Cut off the exposed silver foil
  4. Cut back the white foam to leave 6mm gap of exposed foam between the earth and core cables
  5. Unscrew the coax plug to expose its component parts - Body, pin, collett and clamp
  6. Slide the Clamp down over the satellite cable.
  7. Push the collett onto the end of the cable and squeeze its legs so they clamp around the exposed copper
  8. Next slide the pin into position over the copper core wire
  9. Now slide the body onto the cable and screw clamp onto the body until it is firmly clamped
  10. Use snips to cut the copper core wire so that it is flush with the top of the connector

How to Put on an F-type Joiner

Tools:        Snips

Equipment:  RG6 Satellite Cable, F-type Joiner

  1. Take the first cable with an 'F'-connector on the end and screw an 'F'-joiner into the connector
  2. Take a second cable cable with an F'-connector on the end and screw it onto the 'F'-joiner

How to Put on a Coaxial Joiner

Tools:        Snips

Equipment:  RG6 Satellite Cable, Coaxial Joiner

  1. Take the first cable with an Coaxial connector on the end and push an Coaxial joiner into the connector
  2. Take a second cable cable with an Coaxial connector on the end and push it into the 'F' Joiner

 

Coax to F Connector Adaptors

Equipment:  RG6 Satellite Cable, 'F'-Connector, Coax connector, Coax to F adaptor


  1. Push the coax end of the Coax to F adaptor onto a lead which is terminated with a Coax connector 
  2. Take a second lead which is terminated with an F-Connector and screw this into the F end of the Coax to F adaptor
  3. The 2 leads have now been joined together using the coax to f adaptor
