This is the socket R-TV and we are going to install a new socket beside the old socket.

Put it the new socket in the wall and screw in with screwdriver.

With the cable stripper, we strip the outer sheath of the coaxial cable.

This is the braid.

Take away the braid and the shielding foil and this is the result.

Cut the dielectric white cable stripper and you will see the inner conductor.

Screw in the case for the socket.
