A click-tight coaxial cable continuity connector is provided comprising a connector body, a post engageable with connector body, the post including a flange having a plurality of spaced-apart surface features. A nut is rotatably movable with respect to the post, wherein the nut includes an internal lip having a plurality of spaced-apart surface features, wherein the plurality of spaced-apart surface features of the nut are dimensioned to oppositely correspond in size, number and location to the plurality of spaced-apart surface features of the post. A click-tight continuity member is structurally configured to operably correspond with the dimensions of the plurality of spaced-apart surface features of the nut and also the spaced apart surface features of the post, the click-tight continuity member residing between the nut and the post. When the nut is rotated with respect to the post, the click-tight continuity member affords intermittent rotational resistance upon the nut, via structurally-induced compression forces resultant when the plurality of spaced-apart surface features of the nut are not oppositely correspondingly aligned with the plurality of spaced-apart surface features of the post.
