DX Engineering PL-259 Connector Assembly Tools are designed for threading PL-259 sleeves onto the vinyl jacket of RG-8/U, RG-213/U, LMR-400, and other similar sized cables.
First, properly prepare the coaxial cable and then place the threaded sleeve of the PL-259 connector over the end of the coaxial cable. Start the coaxial cable end into the body of the connector and make sure that all of the strands of the center conductor of the cable are inserted into the center pin. Use these DX Engineering PL-259 connector assembly tools and thread the connector body onto the stripped cable end. Tighten them until the PL-259 connector is fully seated on the coaxial cable. A visual guide at the end allows for easy viewing of the cable center conductor for proper depth installation. When the PL-259 connector is fully seated on the coaxial cable, remove the tools from the assembly for a perfect and easy connector installation every time.
