      Comments about Shakespeare PL-258 Gold-Plated Center-Pin Connector, RG-8X or RG-58/AU:

      Best to use to splice same size antenna coax to each other. Nor recommended to splice RG8X to RG58. Needle nose pliers best to for the tabs. No solder needed. I am very pleased with my connection of 2 cables together.

        Comments about Shakespeare PL-258 Gold-Plated Center-Pin Connector, RG-8X or RG-58/AU:

        This product could not be simpler. Just cut the wire coax flat cut, put on the two collars, crimp down the fitting on the two wire ends, screw down the collars and you are done. Perfect connection. The fins connect with the outer woven layer, while the pin connects with the inner core wire. Stupid simple - even I could do it. :-)
