In my electrical bag I also carry a cable tool (see URL) and a high quality splitter in case I need to share the connection.

Amazon.com: F-CONNECTOR INSTALLATION/REMOVAL TOOL: Home Improvement

I LOVE this tool by the way and use it all the time.

Do you still need to twist the connector into place or is it push in/pull out?

Ter,

It is a wrench that slips over the cable to tighten and loosen the connector.
