Terminating Coaxial Cable - RG6 Quad With Some F Connectors?

I always struggle with coaxial cable and the connectors. Usually I use compression connectors and struggle to get them tight. Usually they are loose and fall off.

I am on a project now where we need to move the Comcast modem and we need to terminate some RG6 quad with some F Connectors. I bought some Ideal connectors from Home Depot, they come off. I suspect the connectors are too small and I didnt have the cable all the way into the connector.

Am I just a putz?
