I've recently bought some cheap RG58/59/6 BNC male-to-cable connectors for DIY work. The connector qnd its guts look like this:

BNC connector assembled BNC connector four parts

I couldn't find a proper name for this connector type, even worse, I couldn't find any assembly procedure either (there are videos for crimp and twist on etc. types). Can anyone explain (supporting visuals will be appreciated :) ) how should a RG6 coaxial cable be mounted to this connector? (the part with 4 teeth ruined the shielding foil)


This TV coax illustration is the closest I could find but illustrates the method.

... the part with 4 teeth ruined the shielding foil.

The teeth clamp the folded-back screen and insulation. They don't bite the foil. Insert the cable through the teeth end.

The only thing I could find on how to assemble these is this link, namely:

1) Strip and cut the video run of your cable.

2) Screw off piece (4) to reveal pieces (2) and (3) inside.

3) Slide piece (4) over the end of your prepared cable.

4) Pry open the teeth on piece (3) then slide it over your prepared cable, leaving it sitting flush with the outer jacket. Using your fingers, push the teeth down, tightening their grip against the cable jacket.

5) Undo the screw on piece (2) and use gentle force to push in the centre conductor in, then tighten the screw.

6) Slide over the the main connector (1) back on until it mates with piece (4) and gently screw the connector until it is secure.

  • \$\begingroup\$ "sitting flush with the outer jacket" that I did wrong, I thought it'd go under the jacket like the crimp types. Problem solved, thanks! \$\endgroup\$ – Fatih Yazıcı Feb 9 '18 at 21:14
