A crimp connector for attachment to a coaxial cable by use of a conventional crimping tool includes a plurality of annular ridges to be crimped, which ridges define a modified hexagonal perimeter having three pairs of opposed planar surfaces and curved surfaces interconnecting adjacent ones of the planar surfaces. A method for crimping resulting in migration of the material of the ridges to maintain a rounded surface about the coaxial cable is disclosed.
