Title: Coaxial connector

Abstract: A connection part has at least two matingly interengaging contact pieces that electrically connect the central conductor of a coaxial cable without soldering or trimming. In the preferred embodiment, the connection part includes a bifurcated segment and another segment resiliently disposed between the bifurcated segment. A jig is inserted through an opening into the connection part, separating and pushing the segments apart, creating a space where the central conductor of a coaxial cable is inserted. The central conductor is pressed against a groove formed by an arcuate section of the connection part segments. When the jig is removed, the resilient action of the segments grip and bend the central conductor holding it firmly and electrically connecting it to the connection part. Bendable cover pieces close the opening. An insulative covering closes and protects the coaxial connector. Grounding arms are connected to the shielding conductor of the coaxial cable and project from slots in the insulative covering. A clamping section clamps the outermost layer of the coaxial cable securing it to the coaxial connector.
