To make your own custom cables with the finger grips I would use compression F connectors with the plastic collars.

Shop IDEAL 50-Pack Compression Type Rg-6 / Rg-6 Quad Coax F-Connectors at

Cable Prep Wing Ding Finger Torque Wrenches, 7/16" F Connectors

This is the wrench I use.

YouRoo, did the same. Put these on every F connector in the coach. Best thing I ever did.

I was considering buying the tool but the guy at the RV store made me a coax cable in the length I wanted for a couple of dollars instead. In my case this was a one time project.
Great choice for "Living within my means" and camping for one...

I recall getting short connection cables like that with Comcasts aux. Connection boxes. They are very easy to use, but no one can ID them. They are probably propriertary, but other good ideas showed up.

These handy gizmo's are referred to by the Cable TV industry as a Jumper Sleeve. There are a few manufacturers who offer these but the PCT International version is the only one that I am aware of that is available for purchase directly by consumers.
