Crimping tools for non-insulated terminals.
Crimping tool performance table.
We are often asked by customers which is the best tool to use. The answer depends on which terminals you will be using the most, how much you are prepared to spend, and how skilled you are. As with all hand tools the result obtained depends to a degree on the skill of the user, but these tools will do a good or perfect crimp on the most common terminals used. There isn't a crimp tool made that will crimp every type and size of terminal on all cables, so the table on the right is offered as a very rough guide to how the four tools below perform on different terminals. The more stars the better.
