There was recently a discussion about installing F connectors.
I ran across a handy tool for this at Lowe's (SKU 303123).  It is a
small pistol grip attached to a female F connector.  The
idea is that you screw on the male connector that you
want to put on the end of the cable, and it helps to
give you leverage to push it onto the cable with high
force, and avoid buckling.

It is an "RCA brand" Model VH149N, but actually made
by Audiovox.  It gives this web site:

but AFAIK this tool isn't on the site.

Also see:

This is the VH149R model.  Seems to be the same as the N version
that I have.
