With comfortable ergonomics and a sturdy metal construction, Ideal's OmniSEAL Pro XL compression tool, also included, employs a smooth, one-cycle motion for compressing F-type, RCA, RG11, BNC and mini connectors onto coaxial cable for permanent, high-integrity connections. Ideal notes that, with its universal design, the OmniSeal Pro XL eliminates the need to carry multiple crimp or compression tools.
The tool is factory preset and calibrated to terminate all Ideal-branded compression connectors; in addition, it can terminate other manufacturers' connectors simply by adjusting the tool's plunger depth, with no adapters required. A handy 7/16-inch hex socket is also built-in to install CATV connectors.
