An F-type coaxial cable connector includes a tapered interface surface for even compression of the interface gasket and prevention of shearing. The cable is retained in the connector by a crimping arrangement including a cylindrical outer ferrule designed with a series of protruding ridges and an inner body of the connector which has a series of V-shaped ridges, the size and shape of the ridges being optimized for both cable retention and waterproofing. The interface is also part of inner body, thus minimizing the number of the loose or secondary parts required for installation. A groove in the inner body accomodates a second o-ring located between a coupling nut and the inner body.
