    Hello All

    I am looking for a few crimp type F plugs for CT125 cable. I have checked the usual sources but they only supply the plugs for CT100 cable, does anyone know of a source for the CT125 plugs?

    Thanks

    DeepS

    I checked with Maplins and they said they only have the screw-on versions but I would prefer to use the crimp connectors.

    Is SCC Distribution just for 'trade'?

    great link baggers1 :thumbsup:

    maplins do have this plug in their catalogue but they never appear to have them in store

    is their a version of this plug that is reduces it down to standard ct100 size on the other end so i can use my offcuts of ct125 as connectors from wall plate to tv?

    When you say converting do you mean the end which makes the connection if so then all crimps ie 100 125 and 165 all connect to a wall plate or Sky receiver.

    Please correct but I thought Ct100 and Ct125 could both take the same F-plug due to cable diameter being near indentical.

    If so, Screw Fix:-

    55114 Black Crimp Type F Plug 10pk 1 2.26

    I have crimpers from the old LAN thin wire ethernet days (BNC type) so I'm rather hoping that's it!

    I think there is a 1-1.5 mm difference in diameter between CT125 and CT100.
    This stops standard CT100 plugs from fitting on CT125 cable. I used to just trim the CT125 outer cover until it fitted the CT100 plug but I want a better solution as I need to do some external cable runs and I do not want to risk water getting into the connectors.
