I've put the old crimp on connectors on a loooong time ago, but haven't used the newer compression type yet, but just ran my 2 lengths of cable for my HR21 install this saturday, and thought I might put the connectors on to make it easy for the installer.......just hook up the box, and make sure everything is working o.k. This may sound like a dumb question, but after stripping the very end down to the copper center, I know you strip back some of the black outer jacket, but I've heard different opinions on the braided part. I've heard to take the black jacket off carefully, leaving so much of the braided part exposed, and then to fold that back over the outer jacket, so it gets a good contact with the connector. I'nve also heard to cut the outer jacket and braided part away evenly, and just push the connector down in between the braid and the white insulation. Which one is it, or does anyone have a simmple picture of how to prep the wire before putting on the compression connectors. I have the right wire stripper, good compression connectors, and the tool for compressing them, just want to do the stripping/prep the right way. I apologize for the lengthy question, and for not really asking it in a simple way, but hopefully it;s still clear what I'm asking. Thanks in advance! Any help much appreciated!
