    Does anyone know where I can order some of these domestically?

    It's the kind of thing they might give away at a cable convention show. I have a customer that wants 5-10 of them. They are light aluminum and small and can be carried in your pocket.

    I have something like that in my tool box, and it has a screwdriver handle stuck on the back end.

    Have had it for years, no idea where it came from. (maybe a D* or E* installer left it, or maybe I bought it from MCM ??) The screwdriver handle, IMO, would make your item at the link better.

    LOL, a screwdriver handle connected to the socket thing WITH a pivot would be WAY better, than that!

    better call the patent office!


    :lol:

    Is it just an ultra hefty security sleeve removal wrench?

    I have this, and it really helps with sliding the compression fitting onto the coax when you are making the ends too. The compression fitting screws onto the threaded end on the other side of the handle. Then you can use the handle to push the compression fitting onto the cable, rather than trying to just push on the fitting itself (really nice for rg6 quad shield which is what I wired my house with).
