Take off cable wire connector and put it back in.

I don't know how to take off the cap. I need to take it off, so that I can insert it through the hole on the metal frame, then put it back in and connect it to the antenna outside.

Unless you already have an RG6 coax stripper and compression fitting installation tool, you are probably better off just drilling the hole bigger.

You cannot take the RG6 connector off. As Carbide posted, the only way to remove it is to cut it off and then install a new one. Just cut a bigger hole and then seal it up with caulk or duct seal.

My first thought was to install a pass-through connector in the existing hole with a second cable for the inside run.

the_tow_guy He needs an F Connector the one you linked is for SO239/UF connectors.

I have used These in the past for outdoor antennas before I got mine in the mid 1990's from RadioShack (Remember them? LoL!)

I don't think you can use one of These because the threaded portion is not long enough and I have never seen a longer one before.

Or you can just drill a bigger hole or cut the end off and use a compression tool to put a new end on both of which were said already.
