Abstract : A coaxial cable is fed through a wall without introducing electrical reflections or otherwise compromising the cable's electrical integrity. A cylindrically-shaped housing having a cavity is inserted through an opening in the wall and is locked in place while an o-ring seals the juncture. A curable adhesive compound fills the cavity and adhesively engages an exposed length of cable shielding and the inner wall of the cavity. After the compound cures, a watertight interconnection and penetration of the wall is formed without compromising the cable's electrical integrity. (Author)
