In order to crimp F-connector crimp rings, the preferred method would be with a cable crimper. This tool is specifically designed to crimp the F-connector crimp rings and makes the job much easier. The tool crushes the ring tightly around the shield and the F-connector. This ensures a good connection for the cable shield. Although you can also crimp this ring with pliers, you'll see what a nice crimp this tool really makes.
