The EX6XL has an O-ring that is a redundant seal and is always compression sealing, regardless of torque. A large tapered compression area creates a redundant moisture-tight interface. Also, there is a gas-tight seal connection between the nut and the post. Finally, three circumferential gaskets seal the body to the post.
After stripping your cable, simply insert the coaxial cable into the connector. Once in place, crimp the connector with the appropriate compression tool for a tight, reliable termination! EX® RG-6 Connectors provide a superb cable retention factor or 45 lbs. (20.41 kg) minimum.
