A coaxial cable connector includes a sleeve and a collar configured to receive the sleeve substantially therein, the sleeve is configured to receive a coaxial cable and has at least one slot extending longitudinally forming a plurality of sides, each side having at least one tooth for engaging a coaxial cable. A threaded nut is also provided with one end of the nut disposed coaxially around and rotatable about a mating area of the collar. The connector also includes a ground coupler that is centrally disposed along a common longitudinal axis within one end of the collar and one end of the nut. The connector can also include an actuator that is configured to receive a coaxial cable and is centrally disposed along a common longitudinal axis within one end of the collar and is disposed within the collar such that the innermost end of the actuator abuts the outermost end of the sleeve, whereby inward pressure on the actuator forces the sleeve into press fit engagement between the collar and the jacket of a coaxial cable.
