About this product


  • Standard coax plug as used for TV aerial connections

Product overview

A standard coax plug, as used for TV aerial connections, with plastic covered body and plastic cap.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Dreadful design - doesn't work! This has to be the worst product I've ever bought from Maplin - it's just not fit for purpose. It has a little grub screw to clamp the centre conductor, which must have seemed a good idea at the time. Problem is that, when screwed on to actual centre conductor, it then sticks out and shorts on to the plug outer shield. I then tightened it further to try and rectify the problem but thread stripped so that centre conductor then fell out. Spent a very frustrating Sunday afternoon trying to connect 6 of these on a TV antenna installation. Going to have to buy some proper plugs elsewhere instead. Total waste of money!

Rated 1 out of 5 by from choose an alternative I bought three of these and had to get 3 replacements locally (the old tip solder type for securing the inner conductor). When I opened the Maplin ones I thought "great - no need for the soldering iron" The problem is the grub screw fouls the outer metal sleeve once the inner has been terminated. Progress, eh!

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Poor design This plug makes a very poor connection. The plastic case means there is very limited conductivity for the outer cable.

Asked by: alan
There should be no soldering needed to do this.

Do they have different sizes or are they all one size

Asked by: lorezg
A coax plug is normally just a standard size.

Do these solder on or screw on with a very small screw like most of the others?
Asked by: Thomas
These are solder connections.
