A connector assembly for a coaxial cable having a helically corrugated outer conductor has a unitary clamping member with a threaded inner surface to match the helical corrugations of the outer conductor of the coaxial cable so that the clamping member can be threaded onto the helically corrugated outer conductor. The end of the clamping member is beveled so as to slope inwardly toward the threaded inner surface of the clamping member. A flaring ring, having an inside diameter at least as small as the inside diameter of the helically corrugated outer conductor, has a bevelled end which engages the inner surface of the open end of the outer conductor so as to flare the engaged portion of the outer conductor outwardly. A body member and the clamping member have integral telescoping sleeves with cooperating threaded surfaces which draw and hold the bevelled ends of the flaring ring and the clamping member together against opposite surfaces of the outer conductor of the cable.
