1) Strip back the coax and pull back braid over cable

2) Put outer part of plug onto cable then screw inner part over braid

3) Solder end of the pin and trim excess wire

4) It should look like this!

Just bought the compression plugs, never done this before. I've soldered the end of the plug but when I put my multi meter on it to test it I'm getting a reading on both the outer and inner pin and a reading on the outer and inner at the same time which I don't think is right if that makes sense. Anyone any pictures of the process step by step please
