Poly-Chem Shrink Terminating Caps are molded
within one closed end to cover, encapsulate and protect the "F" Connector
and loose drop cable reel ends from moisture and corrosion. Simply remove
the end cap when reusing the cable and connector with the double
hook blade (11-961) of your utility knife.
(1) Prepare cable, connector and center conductor length to accepted
industry standards. If center conductor length is longer, trim accordingly.
(2) Slip end cap over the connector and position cap so as to allow
at least 1/4" space between the trimmed end of the center conductor and
the inside wall of the end cap. Do not push the center conductor
tip against the end cap. Installation is now complete and the end cap will
shrink, as it dries, tightly over the drop cable end and/or cable and connector.
NOTE: Poly-Chem Shrink end caps are available in a variety of
different colors. The standard color is red. They are also available for
all sizes of drop cable and connectors. The installation procedure is identical
for every application regardless of cable or connector sizes.
