    DO NOT PUT COAX-SEAL DIRECTLY ON CONNECTORS! You'll never be able to get 
it off and the connector will be semi-useless in the future. 

    Put a wrap of Scotch 33 or 88 on first, and THEN put the Coax-Seal on. A 
better solution is to use a commercial grade vapor wrap product - those will 
peel right off.  <A HREF="";>
