IDEAL Introduces Basic Coaxial Cable Installation Kit

SYCAMORE, IL, May 7, 2007 – Coaxial cable is playing an expanding role in the wiring of residential and commercial properties, where home theater, cable broadband, VoIP telephony, CATV, and CCTV security systems are being installed in record numbers.

To help contractors meet this demand, IDEAL today introduced a basic installer kit (part #33-623) featuring tools for terminating coax. Pre-packaged in a convenient, durable pouch, the kit features:

  • IDEAL Data T-Cutter®: a small handheld cutter for use with coaxial cable u to RG-9/U in applications where maintaining cable geometry is essential for cable performance. Bolt cutting holes make it easy to trim steel reinforced center conductors for proper installation into a dual crimp coax connector.
  • IDEAL Economy Compression Tool: Designed to permanently terminate RG-6 and RG-59 coaxial cable with compression-style F-Connectors, this tool is 30 percent smaller than traditional models and has an easy squeeze, single-hand action that delivers 360° full-radial compression for increased signal clarity and enhanced pull-out strength.
  • IDEAL Economy Coax Stripper: Simple two-step coax stripper works effectively on RG-6, RG-6 quad and RG-59. No adjustments are required.

The IDEAL Basic Coax Installer Kit is immediately available.


Designed for value and performance, the more than 30 tool kits that IDEAL currently offers are well suited to meet the needs of a wide spectrum of industries and users. Each IDEAL kit is carefully comprised of tools to meet specific job-sites and skill level requirements, from apprentice to master. Seasoned professionals select the tools, so the contactor always comes to the job with the right equipment.
