Hi Douglas,

I have done it two ways.
1- I use an adapter for 58 size coax, It is awful tight

2- I use the regular 59 adapter except I fold the braid over the outer 
jacket and then insert it into the adapter, It is also very tight. Then 
the excess hanging out the back I un-fold and bring back around the 
barrell of the 259 connector and clamp it down with a small stainless 
hose clamp.
