Tim Allen: Many years ago cable companies would put something similar on the inside of
the boxes that fed the cable lines into each apartment building, thus
keeping anyone from hooking up the cable to the coax input inside the box.
It was basically a cylinder inside a cylinder. The outside cylinder would
turn but the inside cylinder, the one that was actually threaded onto the
coax input wouldn't. One night I dumped a glob of super glue into the
cylinder and the next night I went out and twisted the damned thing off and
hooked up the cable. Super glue or a fork should do the trick.
pinkisntwell: I had one of them tools...about 10 years ago I had got satellite dish and
the person installing just disconnected the cable and hooked up the dish.
same day phoned the cable company and canceled their service. told them I
had a dish. about 1 month later I was watching tv and there was a signal
loss. phoned satellite company, and they said that the cable was just
disconnected.so I look out the window and there was the cable guy unhooking
the cables from the splitter. I yelled at him to get the freak off my
property. and he said that it's the company's box and he can do what ever
he wanted. I then proceeded to chase him out of the yard with a bat. but he
left that tool in the slot. then I lent it out and never got it back..!!
thanks for the video it worked great.
bud ninefiveo: Worked great!! Thanks
Master Chatter: that's a great Forking trick thx
Engima Box: heh heh good thing they are going to all digital, why yes there is filters,
but they can sue you at that point and throw you in jail :)
littlegoobie: I just got one of these screwdrivers with a bundle from a 2nd hand store
for 75cents and needed to find out what it was i got.
donald thorton: All that is needed is needle for that type of termination lock is a pair of
needle nose pliers. Open the pliers, stick one end all the way in, push in
all the way, point tip upward slightly, close pliers and unscrew. If you
hear a clicking noise close a little tighter. By the way If this is located
on the outside of a home then you can just call your cable provider and
they are required to remove it. You have to be allowed access to the side
of the cable that enters your home along with the Ground line.
Marvin Thomas: Thanks a whole bunch didn't have to pay my money and wait till after 4th of
July to get my cable turned back on after they already got my money
Leslie Hernandez: omg! it actually worked thankyou lol :)
James LaBelle: lol a fork!! Great thinking. Just about anything that can get in that
groove outta work.
AllOneHeart9: OK...Here's my deal. I decided to switch to Comcast from ATT for my
internet ONLY. Self install with new Comcast appropriate modem. That was
last week. After getting the equipment and talking with 7 different Comcast
peeps, while they say I have service to my house and a service person was
supposed to be here yesterday, now it is next week. I asked if "magically"
the cable (that already comes to the house and I had told them to CUT it
right before the box 8 years ago because I never thought I would deal with
Comcast again [another story]) got reconnected inside the box before next
week, would I have service...and they said yes! SO, I am about to attempt
that. Any suggestions? lol...besides Wait till next week and let them do
Bobbie Chappell: I tried it and it really work! !
Joe S: Wrong kyliam80 , Anything attached to the customers house is the customers
property including the cable, the box and splitters inside of it. Cable
companies just put that junk on the box to deter customers from connecting
their own lines to demarc so they can charge service calls. I rip those
terminators off all the time.
Eric Wainright: And then when you get the box open, go ahead and freak with a bunch of crap
you know nothing about. You still wont have free cable because the cable
isn't terminated from the house box. Also, the house box is considered
Cable Company property. Whether it is on your house or not is irrelevant.
Eric Withrow: Problem is termination is done at the pole not the box. All that in the box
is splitters and now service is also controlled at the main office by
computer so break in if ya want nothing in there..
manuel pineda: Fuccck u kyliam08 suck a dik u snitch.
dreikano: yep I"m a tech but you mess with it you will pay for any damage to the
cables and or box and lock. lol so funny!
