Need some help. Looking for a male-male pl259 ground apparatus. I see all kinds of so called lighting arrestors but as I understand it these ground the core in the event of a surge. Is there a commercially available coax ground that grounds the shield? If so anyone got a link?

Or if I am thinking about it wrong, how do you ground a coax at the entrance of the house?

Thanks !

I have several UHF bulkhead connectors mounted on a small copper plate to bond all the shields together at one point. I also have BNCs and one F bulkhead mounted on the same plate.
