Opening the exterior Time Warner box

We're going to be doing some remodeling and rather than wait to get on these guys' schedule and paying for a service call, I want to relocate their box myself. This is the plastic box outdoors that hides the coax cable splices and entry point into the exterior of your house. You used to be able to open this thing with a funky cable termination tool, but the one I have won't do it. I only need to move it about 3 feet over, but I just can't bring myself to pay these jokers to do that for me...




As it turns out, the Alamodome has a policy that no beer can be sold when there is less than 10 minutes on the game clock. I am enraged by this policy.

So, is your post a commentary, question or statement?

you can do it yourself. I never needed a special tool to open it. Just a screwdriver and a ratchet

My bad, it's a question - How the hell do you open this damn thing?

Yours must be different than mine. Mine's sealed with a piece of cable and a couple terminators. Screwdriver is useless and I can't get a ratchet head around it. I've had some luck with needlenose pliers in the past.

I tore mine open when I needed to add a splitter. TW has been out here 3-4 times since then and never said a word about it.

Are you using the pliers to grab either side of the little ring in the middle and turn it like a screw, or do you wedge the closed pliers inside that ring, open them up to apply pressure from the inside, and then turn it?

Re: Opening the exterior Time Warner box [re: Ignatius]

You need one of these:




It's an f-type connector wrench & you can find them @ Lowe's, Home Depot, etc. They're like $20 which is stupidly expensive but I bought one anyway. To make you feel like you're getting your money's worth you can then go & tighten all of your coax connections @ the wall plate, cable box, TVs, etc.
