Personally I would go for the tool to tighten them up worked with those push ons for years most of the time had to hold them in place.

I used several of the quick connection ones for my hookups. I found ones that have a rubber ring around them to keep them tight. Been going for several years now without trouble.

Cable connectors

Please do not use the slip on connectors. Check out the attached product. I found these at Lowes. They have a rubber sleeve in place of the nut and are much easier to work with.

Robot Check

They can be installed without the $30.00 tool. If anyone purchases them send me a PM and I will be glad to respond. Frank

it looks like the issue of using the slip-on adapters and the 90 degree adapters is a "to each his own" matter, ....maybe some folks have had problems with them, but that doesn't mean we all have,.....I've used both for years with no problems at all, they're certainly easier and cheaper to use than these other gadgets mentioned, so I think I'll just keep using um,....."to each his own"

Just for curiosity... Why not?

I've seen techs use these before. Only ,$2.80 and fits on your key chain. Pretty slick.
