Nice budget ratchet crimping
20 Aug 2014
By KnobbyWotsit
, Bristol
"Seem good quality with a good regulated pressure crimp. Comparable with some crimpers twice the price. And certainly better than the scissor crimps.
So far have held up to a lot of crimping of yellow and blue. Haven't really done any red yet.
A little bit awkward in tight spaces, but then, most crimpers are.

Ratchet crimping pliers.
9 Aug 2014
By TherealDH
, Swindon
"Having previously bought some lightweight crimping pliers for a one off job. I had several frustrating failures, both of connection and tool, on later tasks so opted for these more durable pliers.
I have used them over the past few days and have had a 100% success with connections and the tool feels so much better in the hand not flexing when the pressure is applied. Not the cheapest tool available but excellent value for money."

Good tool at a great price

"There are great everyday crimpers. They will do 95% of what you need at a fraction of the cost of some of the others. Good crimps every time. Reliability is good so far."

Why pay more

"These crimps do what they are supposed to to, you could pay more for a fancy name on the side but that says more about you than these."

Excellent Purchase
1 Oct 2010
By Dexter1
, Milton Keynes
"Had struggled with the normal cheap plier type crimp tool wasting at least one in two crimps and also some crimps failing a pull test even after looking well made. Purchased this tool and used on more than twenty crimps - no waste and no failed crimps. Halved the time spent doing the job and it did it properly! Well worth buying and gives a professional result."

Forge Steel ratchet crimpers
31 Jul 2008
By Noddyunplugged
, Teesside
"Rachet crimpers are just great. Far better than your regular 'hand' crimper. The tension on the ratchet crimpers is adjustable so you simple squeeze until IT lets go. No more wires falling out of crimped connections (provided you follow the colour-coding and select the right guage wire for the right colour connector) which in-turn means no more wasted crimps!"

"I bought this because I needed to splice a cable in an awkward area. I also needed to be sure that the crimp would be be a high quality job first time. These pliers did exactly that."
