For a toolless installation, use these twist-on type BNC connectors. Simply strip your RG-59 cable back and twist these on. Easy to use and durable.
All machined type connectors

This makes interior installs much cheaper and easier. Just a quick twist on and move on. I've never used these on exterior cameras, and I doubt I will, just because I want to insure I have a solid seal on anything exposed to the elements. But for interior cameras, I use a ton of these. Work everytime and as I said quick and simple.

These are one of the best things I've found that SCK sells. I been crimping or compressing ends on for years. Which is easy, but it is expensive for the crim/compression bits from a different company I was going through for those pieces. I still HIGHLY recommend using a good compression or crimp for cameras that are exposed to weather, or have any wiring out doors. Just insures a good solid weather resistant seal. However, if it is interior cameras, or on awnings, these super easy to use connectors make installation a breeze. Like everything I've had from SCK great quality. Will be buying again, probably as soon as I submit this :).
I ordered some of these for some extra cameras and cabling I added to my system at home. I didn't feel like purchasing a special tool that I wasn't going to use again (most likely) and these worked great the first time. They did alright the second time too!
I've seen a lot of comments, especially from installers, about how these are not as good or professional as the crimp on or compression settings. I'm not a professional so I can't offer an opinion on that but I can tell you that for do it your selfers that don't want to purchase an additional tool for installing your system, this connectors work just fine. I use them and as long as you strip the cable right and apply the connector properly they do a great job.
