I would use Liquid Electrical Tape to cover antenna connections. I 
currently use it on my vertical, and recently had to remove it. Very 
easy to remove the bulk of it, but sometimes a little thin layer 
still remains. It stood up to some of the colder (not, thanks to El 
Nino,) Chicago temps, and a lot of heat and sun. Works great, and 
certainly would pass it on to people. Throw the coax seal in the 
garbage, or use it as a putty toy.
