Cable TV Line


So my dog chewed through the cable TV line outside of my house. What do I need to do to fix it?

Seriously.
If you own the cable cut a piece off and bring it in somewhere to match it. Get the proper ends and couplings for that cable. There are a couple of different sizes/styles.

If it is on the cable company side call them and they will fix it.

Just make sure that you hit it with the mower a couple of times. Actually, if you can, trench it deeper and put some rock over the line to keep the critter from digging. You can also contain it in some Schedule 40, but remember to seal the ends with some Silicon caulk.

Red pepper does not work, due to 1) it wears off, 2) some dogs like the taste.
