Fishing new wire through walls - advice

I'm upgrading my security camera system, which means I'll be trying to fish new BNC cables through the walls, using the old mini DIN cables as bait.

How can I connect the old cable ends to the new ones securely, so I don't lose the connection in a wall? Anyone have advice on this? Thanks in advance!!

Strip back the insulation and bend/tie the metal conductors together then cover with electrical tape so it's smooth with nothing to snag.

So I'd cut off one connector-end of each cable, and then re-connect the one I'm still using after the operation? That makes sense! And thanks so much for the quick reply! :-)

Hi, I assume you mean Coax cable for BNC cable,are the connectors already installed on those cables? If not ,I would cut off any old connectors and tape the cables together forming one cable,over lapping about a foot.
