I have a TV set that has broken a small hole around where the CATV
exits the housing. It still works. What I need to do is just get a
3/8 or 1/2 inch washer and put over the CATV plug and tighten a nut
down on the washer.
What size thread would this be?
It will have to be a thin nut. This would probably be one of those
low profit items you have to get at Radio Shack. Probably an item
only the CATV guys have.
I might open an old satellite box and see if there is one inside. I
can't think of anything else the old box would be good for.
Doesn't the jack use a small nut already to secure it to its mounting
plate? I was envisioning him removing the existing nut, putting a thin
washer on (or maybe one on each side?) then reinstalling. That *might*

This is what I am looking for. I just have to figure out what I have
leftover I can take apart to get one.
Take either a hacksaw with a fine tooth blade or a Dremel tool with a cutoff
wheel and cut a suitable slice off of a cable connector.
Get some 2 part epoxy and glue the connector back in. I'd mix some
filler in to thicken up the epoxy, but I already have the supplies
Get one of these and modify the case to fit.
