Title: Coaxial connector and method

Abstract: Coaxial connectors for coaxial cable and methods for connecting coaxial connectors to a coaxial cable include: a sleeve for allowing passage of a prepared end of a coaxial cable therethrough having at least a first contact surface, a terminal including a second contact surface, an insulator disposed therein for receiving a center conductor of a coaxial cable and a nut for receiving the sleeve, the nut being axially displaceable along at least a portion of the sleeve. The first and second contact surfaces form a clamping region for capturing the outer conductor of a coaxial cable. The coaxial connector does not include a center conductor. An insulator is disposed in the terminal to receive the inner conductor of a coaxial cable for direct connection to a junction box, amplifier, or other coaxial port.
