Almos wortless

Bought this with booster. It came with no instructions and no way to connect. Called support and they gave me a part number for a connector but cannot find it the number on the website. It appears the item should be grounded but the support guys were not sure hoe to do that. Am sending it back.

Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend to a friend

Question: I got the 75 Ohm lightning surge protector but i can't hooked to my antenna, i need another small piece of coax you can tell me which is the right one to use , thanks.

Answer: Thank you for your question! Typically we recommend using a 2 ft jumper cable to attach on the other end of the lightning surge protector to the antenna. You can use part number - 950602, which will help get you connected from the surge protector to the antenna. You can find this cable through many of our online re-sellers. For additional questions, you can reach us here through our online support center: http://support.weboost.com/hc/en-us/requests/new

Question: HOW TIGHT IS THE LARGE CENTER SCREW SUPPOSED TO BE? I AM ASSUMING THIS LETS YOU REPLACE THE GAS CARTRIDGE IF IT BLOWS? MINE WAS NOT TIGHT AT ALL.

Answer: Thank you for the question. You are correct, this is the gas element for replacement. As long as the element is hand tight, that should suffice. For additional questions, you can reach us here through our online support center: http://support.weboost.com/hc/en-us/requests/new

Asked by Tom T 4 years ago

Question: Prepping to install a Connect 4G with the directional antenna on a 20' exterior mast which is properly grounded to an existing ground rod. Do I need this surge protector in addition to the existing grounding? If so, can the unit be grounded to the mast?

Answer: The way that you ground the surge protector will largely depend on your area. We always recommend reaching out to your county electrician for additional grounding information as there are different codes and requirements per area. This protector is typically placed on the outside coax, and used on the other side of the protector is a 2 ft jumper of RG-6, which will then plug in to your antenna. Our protectors can support up to a 10 gauge copper wire fed through the top of the surge protector, where the wire is then wrapped around a grounding rod that is properly lodged in to the ground. We do recommend this protector to add additional lightning strike coverage, and we do have replacement gas tubes for the center.

Asked by waynej 4 years ago

Question: I can't seem to get the coax to fit in this.  I'm trying to use the coax that came with the 4g weboost kit.  The center conductor on the coax seems too large.  Suggestions?

Answer: This is the 75 ohm lightning surge protector. If you have the Connect 4G-X or an older Wilson AG Pro 4G (any of the 50 ohm systems) you need the other lightning surge protector. You need the 859902 seen here: https://store.weboost.com/products/lightning-surge-protector-50-ohm

Was this question helpful to you? Yes: 1 No: 0

Answer: I have the 4G, and at least according to the quick start guide, it uses the 75 ohm surge protector.  So maybe I just need to keep trying to press the coax on?

Asked by Dennis 4 years ago

Question: I bought the 75 ohn lightning surge protector, no instructions.  Does it matter which side goes to external antenna and which goes to booster?

Answer: The surge protector is bidirectional and can be placed between two coax lengths going either way. One coax will then go to the booster and the other coax will go to the outdoor antenna location. You will also want to check with your county electrician about their grounding requirements. Most require a 10 or 12 gauge copper wire from the surge protector to a grounding rod. The max wire size our LSP can handle is 10 Gauge. The depth of the grounding rod will be based on your counties requirements.
