An environmental sealing connector housing which includes means for retaining the housing on the terminator and the connector both in the associated but unconnected state, and in the connected state is described and illustrated. More specifically, the sealing connector housing includes compartments within the housing which are sized to accept the tap port and connector combination as well as separate compartments which can retain the housing on the tap while providing a compartment for the connector when the connector is not connected to the tap. In addition, the housing is designed so that a 180.degree. rotation of the housing permits the same housing to be used on both connected and unconnected connector/tap combinations to serve as a means of avoiding tampering with or stealing of the signal emanating from the tap.
