T-configuration splitters offer several advantages over in-line splitters in certain applications.  They are particularly useful in leaky (radiating) cable DAS were it is necessary to separate the cables as quickly as possible in order to prevent coupling between the cables.  Additionally, many installers find it easier to secure their connections when there is more space between connectors, and a torque wrench can be applied. The Dx-85FD and Dx-77FN are examples of these splitters.
