This last weekend, I ventured out to Home Depot and Lowes to check out the prospects of recabling both of my houses with new RG6U for cable and satellite. I had a very comparable experience at both stores except for the fact that I could not find ANYTHING at Lowe's. I had to ask for assistance twice and then they couldn't find it without looking up part numbers. I ended up purchasing a kit for $28 that included 10 Zenith compression quad shield connectors and the compression tool. I read around on the net and saw that this is a handy little tool, and let me tell you, it's awesome. I have had a generic ideal compression connector tool with an RG59 die that one of my first satellite installers left me for years. I used this the last time I ran a couple splits for mirroring receivers in bedrooms. I've also used the trusty side hex crimpers on several occasions. The Zenith tool compares to the quality tools we used with Digicons and Thomas and Betts connectors in college, when I worked for a home theater business. This tool which sells for $15 was a snap and I mean that literally. I bought 100 ft of RG6U by Carol at Home Depot for 27 cents a foot for each house and had it installed at each house in under half a day including drive time. I did three runs with plates at my home and 2 runs at my lake house. It is kind of cool how Zenith has engineered the professional compression tools down to a consumer level. The connectors feel very solid and claim to be water tight. I don't know how water tight they are so I put a weatherproof box over my grounding blocks anyways. Now I know, you're saying... Laz is ridiculous for paying that much for connectors, but I needed very few and am very impatient, so I wasn't about to wait for an internet delivery. For those DIY'ers out there that need a good set of connectors and compression tool though, check out the Zeniths as they are worth every penny. Be sure though to grab a rotating coax stripper while at the store though, it eliminates a lot of grief from stripping your coax.
