PL-259 Connector, RG-8X or RG-58

Product details

SHAKESPEARE Centerpin PL connector for RG8X and RG58 coax cables. The revolutionary design of this gold-plated PL connector allows for easy and fast assembly, without any special tools. No more annoying and time-consuming measuring, stripping, soldering or crimping!

Our tip: Apply a little acid-free grease to the threads of the knurled screw (cover ring) * and coupling screw (coupling ring) *. This prevents the penetration of moisture / water even at these parts of the plug-in connection.
* (See also documents / manual)

  • Fits RG8X (6 mm outer diameter), RG58 (5 mm outer diameter) and SHAKESPEARE Lo-Max coaxial cable.
  • Quick and easy assembly without special tools (no crimping pliers, no soldering iron).
  • High-quality gold-plated quality, thus ideal HF conductivity, no corrosion.
  • Cable entry through integrated O-ring waterproof.

  • Plug with screw connection
  • Plastic adapter sleeve (5/6 mm inner / outer Ø)
  • O-ring (4/7 mm inner / outer Ø)
  • Knurled screw

Assembly Instructions
  1. Slide the knurled screw (cover ring) onto the cable (the female thread must point towards the end of the cable).
  2. Slide the O-ring onto the cable.
  3. IMPORTANT: The cable end must not be slanted, damaged, or dirty.
  4. For RG 58 cables, plug the plastic adapter sleeve (nylon adapter) onto the cable.
  5. Installation is easy when you plug the PL connector into a SO 239 socket (for example, on the antenna, radio, or a deck disconnect) and secure with the coupling screw (Coupling ring).
  6. Insert the RG8X cable without plastic adapter sleeve, RG 58 cable with plastic adapter sleeve as far as possible into the cable entry of the connector.
  7. The middle pin in the plug has to screw into the core of the coax cable!
  8. Proceed with all 3 claw pairs.
  9. Slide the O-ring on to the pressed claws.
  10. Slide the knurled screw connection over the cable entry and tighten firmly.
  11. Done!

  1. You will also find a coaxial connector for RG58 and RG8X with the same technology.
  2. Parts of this article are not available as spare parts.

Crimp and solderless a good idea. How that works with waterproof and durability will show the time.
