I've never seen these push-on connectors but I question whether you need a lead with push-on.  I can't believe that the f-plug connections that VM install have changed so surely they are still threaded and will take a threaded plug ???

Amazon do a range of extension cables with threaded plugs ...   https://www.amazon.co.uk/WHITE-VIRGIN-MEDIA-BROADBAND-EXTENSION/dp/B0074RZ1TC/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid...

Re: coax extension cable

not sure if these are a new type of cable but it says to "push" not screw the cables into the wall/tivo/modem pics added here 15310665_1391551310877833_891900850_n.jpg15310548_1391551317544499_2058285580_n.jpg

OK, these new push on plugs are a cheap and, in my opinion, nasty alternative to proper threaded plugs.  The link I provided to Amazon cables is still relevant and probably better than this rubbish.
