hi

What do you mean by 'alternative'? Take a look at *b*y, will cost you only about max 20 USD (often even incl. free shipping).

Well I bought a few heads, and managed to close one but wrecked the head, using a few pairs of pliers.
Will prob buy one, but will only ever use it a couple of times. Cheers. Thought there could be a work around.

No workaround for compression connectors as the seal is made inside, in-between the outer sheath and braiding and the dielectric material.

Why not use those connectors that you just turn around the cable instead of the need of a tool ?
I stopped using the kind of connectors that need a tool to be attached to the cable since I found the turnable connectors (that you can remove again and are reusable)

If there is not enough slack on the line they may come loose. My cables are not the standard gague, think they are called mini cables, so have a mini type f push on with screw to receiver. There is no crimping of the collar to ensure it won't fall off so it's come loose from the collar at times. Picked up compression connectors to try make them more secure. Ideally need an extra length on the cable.

I have used screw on connectors on thinish cable , found that if you strip back the sheathing an extra inch or so you can wrap the screening foil etc round the cable and get a tight fit.

The screening has to touch the connection also you can get crimp on connections that grip the cable when squeezed with a pliers everyone has a pliers Lol
