Coax cables have multiple uses. For all the simple tasks that you might want to DIY, the coax cables have an integral role in them. In setting up all such connections, you’ll probably need to connect two different coax wires via wire connector

This guide helps you with the complete process of connecting the coax cables to a connector. Let’s see how you can do it:

Connecting Cable Wire to a Connector:

Below is the step by step process connecting cable wire to a connector:

  1. Take two different coax cables that you want to connect together. 
  2. By using the wire stripping tool, strip the insulation over the copper wire up to an inch. Repeat this process with the other wire too.
  3. Now use the coax cable connector by pulling the plastic casing over the insulated wires.
  4. Unscrew the inner metallic part of the connector and let the exposed ends of the copper wires get into it so that both the wires reach halfway into the connector.
  5. Now place the screws again to keep the copper wires in place.
  6. Bring the plastic casings close together and tighten them by winding.
  7. You have your coax cable wires connected to the connector.

Summing up:

Following this simple procedure can save your time and ensure a safe setup for connecting cable wires to a connector.
