Available in square and hexagonal crimp styles, these crimp tools boast ergonomically shaped handles with hardness and surface textures for “comfortable” frequent use, a non-slip grip pad for applying pressure against a surface, and ratchet action to ensure crimps are completed according to specification. The self-adjusting crimping tools are designed for insulated and non-insulated ferrules, and adjust to wires sizes from 26AWG to 8AWG.
