Tired of sore fingers hooking up cable in RV Park?

Just add these to both ends of your cable connection "cord".



My fingers are too fat and the threads are often damaged so it's a bugger to get the connection tight for a good picture.

A package of four is only $6.97 on Amazon.

Great for making connections in tight corners too. Screw the adapter on the cable then merely push on the male connection on the wall or back of a TV/DVD/DVR, etc.

Been using those for years. Bought dozens at Radio Shack when they were still in business.
Funny, your Amazon site has 4 for 6.97, and 10 for 3 bucks more.
What a deal!!!

Finally remembered to order a bunch a few weeks ago. I also bought 90 degree push on connections as well. IMO, buy a bunch so if one gets a little loose from use just change for a fresh one.

Thanks for that suggestion. Looks like a knuckle saver.

How do you store your coaxial cable? Also how long coaxial cable do you carry?

The post shows the best of the quick connect adapters. The ring helps it stay tight. There are cheaper ones that loosen too easily. Best to avoid the push on cables that come free with some TV devices. RG-6 Coax is much better than RG-59. We carry two 16ft cables with a bullet to use between. Always be careful the the center wire does not get bent or you will get a much degraded signal.

We carry a few lengths of cable. Sometimes I will take the outside TV off the camper and move it closer to the fire. I loop my cable then use spring clamps to hold it tight. There is a small space between the outside fridge and wall that cable fits nicely. With the spring clamps holding it tight cable also stores nice in the pass through.

These things are a little more expensive, but make a better connection, and last a long time. https://rvcablegrip.com/

They have some other neat products also ......

These and the right angle version are also available from Walmart. Same price, and you don't need a membership to get free shipping (7 day or so delivery).

I have 4 tvs in the 5er and 3 lengths of cable. Found them for less (99 cents) online plus a small shipping charge.
