Comet 5D4N - Low-Loss Mobile Coaxial Cable Mount Type N Connectors
Mounting instructions: This cable assembly can be mounted either through a 5/8 inch roof/trunk hole or installed in any of the Comet brand trunk/hatch-back/lip mounts. The permanent hole-mount is not inherently waterproof. An o-ring is provided in the top jam nut sealing moisture incursion but water can still follow the threads down under the roof line. Waterproofing using silicone or similar around the connector threads is recommended. For permanent hole mounting, a reinforcement washer is included. Remove this washer if not needed. The hex nut and reinforcement washer are placed under the roof/trunk surface. The jam nut with o-ring is screwed down onto the connector holding the connector in place. DO NOT over-tighten. For ease of installation the barrel on the N-male connector is detachable. To remove the barrel, turn the barrel clock-wise. To shorten the coax length and/or minimize coax loss, remove the connector barrel, desolder the center pin and disassemble the connector body. Cut the coax to the desired length and reassemble.
