PCT-AIO-CT connector tool

Written By Philip, Easton, MD on Friday, May 22, 2009
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
CAUTION. The tool came with no directions...either with the Crutchfield pn # 659COMPRSN or the 'F' series connectors Crutchfield pn # 659CON. The PCT international website and Crutchfield's own help was unable to tell me how to use the tool.

Turns out, the connectors, which are really clever and nice, are longitudinal compression connectors rather than the cheaper and less weather worthy, circumferential compression fittings.

The tool works and ,at least the 'F' series connectors, are really high quality.
