Compression tool simplifies installation

IDEAL introduces OmniSeal Pro XL compression tool.

Sycamore, Ill., January 27, 2011—The OmniSeal Pro XL compression tool from IDEAL allows installers to terminate connectors onto coaxial cable in a smooth, one-cycle full ratchet motion. It provides a permanent, high-integrity connection of F-type, RCA, RG11, BNC and mini connectors.

Because of its universal design, the OmniSeal Pro XL eliminates the need to carry multiple crimp or compression tools. It is factory preset and calibrated to terminate all IDEAL-branded compression connectors. In addition, it can terminate other manufacturers connectors simply by adjusting the tool's plunger depth—no adapters required. There is also a handy 7/16-inch hex socket built-in to install CATV connectors.

The OmniSeal Pro XL is a professional-grade tool. It combines a high-strength aluminum body with a spring-loaded handle featuring a textured Santoprene slip-resistant grip.
