  Yes.  The end of the cable has a block of plastic molded onto it, with
a screw sticking through it with a big finger handle on the end of the
screw.  You hold the block against the back of the monitor and tighten
the screw to pull the block against it.  A small pigtail cable, 2-3"
long with a BNC on the end, comes out of the end of the block to connect
to the adjacent BNC connector on the monitor.

  In most of the variants of these cables, on the top of that plastic
block is also an RJ-22 connector (telephone handset connector) for an
LK-series keyboard, and a MicroDIN connector for a DEC-protocol mouse.
