"Twist-On" Cable Connectors ( male)

I purchased two "Twist-On" cable-connectors for a co-ax cable routed between the "service" connection and a "splitter" with two outputs, one to a computor, and the other to a TV.

As best I can tell , the internal diameter where the connector "threads" on to the braided sheild is too small for the cable.

An instruction on the package reads---- "Caution-- 'F' connectors fit only the RG59 size coaxial cable."

Any advice ?

It sounds like your trying to screw it on to RG6 cable.Best advise is to forget the screw on connections.If your on cable,then the local cable office will normally give you a ready made hook up piece of cable.If not they are available at stores.
