Can you over tight cable modem coaxial

I just wondering that can you over tighten the screw cables into wall and the modem or the connector 

I tried really tight but it seems that the screw had limit to how far you can screw internet seems ok just wondering if coaxial cables wall to modem can break the ports there connected to but I'm fine.

You can overtighten F connectors until the threads strip out.

 

They only need to be finger tight indoors. If you want them a little tighter for tamper resistance (to keep curious little fingers from unplugging the YouTube box), tighten them 1/8 of a turn past snug using a 7/16" wrench.

Dell owns my soul.
