    Hey,

    I'm having a really hard time trying to put Cablecon 5.1 compression connectors type F on the HD100 originally (which I cannot fit the connectors on so then purchased WF100), the cablecon 5.1 compression connectors fit but are still proper tight and I'm struggling to get the dielectric flush with the connector.

    I have some eBay ones as well which seem to fit the WF100 but still quite hard to get on.

    The below thread says the 5.1 connectors work fine with HD100/WF100 if so why am I finding it so hard to put the connectors on.

    They are hard to put on but don't come off & are waterproof,

    how are you prepping the coax

    have you tried the one recommended by webro for both wf100 & Cablecon - still not that easy

    Don't know about HD100 - usually go up to WF125- they are fun
