The Planet Waves Universal F Connector sets a new standard in the termination of standard Coaxial Cable. The usual process of terminating coax involving stepped stripping and crimping tools has been eliminated. Two step stripping tools typically create a painful process of exposing the coaxial dielectric followed by pushing and twisting of an F connector onto the cable in order to "prep" it for crimping via a costly crimping tool. Through the use of Planet Waves one step strip tool (Part #SSFBT) the coaxial jacket, shield, and insulator are cut and removed in a single step leaving just the copper center conductor exposed and prepped to the correct length for the connector. The Coaxial cable is then simply inserted into the Universal F connector. The quick and easy process is completed by tightening down the patented Planet Waves screw that cuts the jacket to complete the connection while holding the connector securely in place. The result is a connection that has been fully tested for superior 75 ohm signal transfer while offering speed, time efficiency, and quality all in one connection.
Universal Series Connectors are available in two versions and are engineered to terminate these commonly available coaxial cables:
We strongly recommend using the Planet Waves screwdriver (Part #SD01) when terminating Planet Waves Universal Series Connectors. The SD01 has the following features:
- Magnetic tip that holds the Planet Waves screws in place
- A soft grip for maximum comfort
- Ergonomic shape is designed to function easily with one hand Swivel head that spins in the palm of your hand
ALL PLANET WAVES CONNECTORS ARE COMPLETELY REUSABLE. WHEN RE-USING OUR UNIVERSAL SERIES PLEASE REMEMBER TO REPLACE THE SCREW OR REMOVE THE JACKET "DIVOT" PER THE CONNECTOR INSTRUCTIONS.
