I just received a new Cloverleaf antenna from Tim & crew, but in the box, the SMA connector had separated in the shipping box.

I don't have a crimp tool to close the ring to hold the 2 parts together; does anyone have any tricks to get it done? Been struggling with it for about an hour. :(

Would replace it myself but I would think that would be under warranty.

Try to snap it on but otherwise warranty first, replace 2nd - they're not terribly difficult, not easy if you've never done one tho.

I finally got it to go together, but it doesn't 'lock' and will separate with light force. :(
