It would have helped if you had posted a link to the connectors you are referring to. So now that I have googled it, I can answer your question.

Yes, I have used them or something just like them. They are original equipment on at least some Trango radios.

He didn't like my answer,

He asked " Anybody uses Laird Tech Feed Thru Connectors before?". Guess I don't understand your answer.

Ok I guess my subject should be worded little differently my bad I didnt know if it was going to confuse alot of people. I am going to cut it to the chase basically I know what size wrench I need for this plastic nut:

I'm pretty sure it's a metric size so I suggested a metric crescent wrench.

Yeah, sorry, it's a silly question. Your going to need to go to the store to get the wrench any way. Just take the thing with you and size it.

Pliers, crescent wrench, even larger needle nose pliers work just fine. It's not like you want to (really) torque it down in the first place.

On the second hand, I hate those. There are other styles I like a lot better. As a passthrough that brand is alright. But not the Ethernet passthrough unit. I preferred the style deliberant used for quite a while instead. Not sure who makes them though.

Invariably, the next one you get will take a different size wrench and you will have to climb down from the tower and drive to the store yet again.

I generally am loath to using an adjustable (crescent) wrench or pliers but as you said, they don't really need to be torqued down.

Every situation has a preferred tool. I prefer 6 point sockets to 12 point. I prefer a box end to a spanner where the situation does not mandate one over the other. Would I go to the store to buy a spanner for a plastic nut? No.

I have two rules to tower work. (in regards to tools)

1. Bring the right tools
2. Bring extra tools

We almost always have a pair of pliers anyway for a little snug fit of N connectors (experienced touch). But, I always have a cresent with me, just in case I drop the correct tool, or don't have the "right" one LOL

I don't think I ever had to use any kind of wrench on that type of fitting. Just old the nut and rotate the threaded end until it snug and then leave it alone. I am pretty sure there are some 10+ year old connectors like this still in the field where they were put together this way and they never came loose.

you might as well get the rest of it. that's just the replaceable end for this »www.streakwave.com/itemdesc.asp?···&eq=&Tp= it's worth the extra $6 when it's nasty outside.

your fingers are enough to tighten them ... be careful with the wrench!
