A few months ago I asked a question on this reflector about tools that would
help tighten PL-259 connectors on remote coax switches, four square boxes,
stacking boxes, etc. Anywhere there is a tightly grouped cluster of SO-239
connectors - that makes getting channel locks or fingers in the "nest" to
insure the PL-259 shells are tight. It is even more problematic being on the
tower trying to get everything tight
N0AX suggested the first tool URL below - and then I found the second one on
the Amazon site. Both tools are pretty inexpensive.
One of these tools goes straight on - the other has a bend for getting in
even tighter places. These tools are what I was looking for to do the job.
The only improvement would be these same two tools with a ratcheting "hold"
to grab the connector and stay "grabbed" until release.
I hope someone else can benefit from Ward's guidance.
