I'm wondering just what sort of tension these things are being subject
to. I tend to believe that co-ax connectors are there to make
reasonably solid electrical contact, the physical stuff is sorted by
other means. I've never had such a failure.
The jacket and braid of co-ax (not hardline) can always be pushed back
from the centre dialectric. I try to use crimp type where available.
In the case of PL259 with soldered centre conductor and braid the two
are locked in place.
