1. A coaxial cable continuity connector comprising;

  • a connector body, having a first end and an axially opposed second end, wherein the opposite axial location of the first end and the second end of the connector body exists with respect to a central longitudinal axis of the coaxial cable continuity connector;

    a post engageable with the connector body, wherein the post includes a flange having a tapered surface, the tapered surface of the post forming a non-radial face extending at a non-perpendicular angle with respect to the central longitudinal axis of the coaxial cable continuity connector;

    a nut, wherein the nut includes an internal lip having a tapered surface, the tapered surface of the internal lip of the nut forming a non-radial face extending at a non-perpendicular angle with respect to the central longitudinal axis of the coaxial cable continuity connector, wherein the tapered surface of the internal lip of the nut oppositely corresponds to the tapered surface of the flange of the post when the nut and post are operably axially located with respect to each other when the coaxial cable continuity connector is assembled; and

    a continuity member being resilient relative to the longitudinal axis of the coaxial cable continuity connector, wherein the continuity member is disposed between and contacting the tapered surface of the flange of the post and the tapered surface of internal lip of the nut, so that the continuity member endures a moment resulting from the contact forces of the opposite tapered surfaces, when the continuity connector is assembled.
