A customer contacted CCTV Camera Pros with the following question related to CCTV cables:
I have a small hole drilled in the brick that leads to the dvr in my living room. If I run your CCTV cable, can I cut the 3 connectors off of the end so I will be able to re-connect them again on other side after I feed the cable through the wall?
CCTV Camera Pros provided the following support:
If you are using [url=ttp://www.cctvcamerapros.com/CCTV-Security-Camera-Cables-s/258.htm]pre-made CCTV cables[/url] like the ones on the link below, then you can not cut the connector ends off and replace them.
You should use RG59 siamese cable which is made so that you can attach connectors after you run and cut the cable to your exact length desired:
You can see how to connect BNC crimp on connectors to RG59 cable in this video.
