" Must be new supplier of crimps as diameter is now too large on both red and blue butt crimps unable to secure cables with rachet . Hours wasted on CU change due to this! "

Not a decent product.
26 Jun 2012
By JimBobSparky

" I can only reinforce what other people on here have said. Initially I thought maybe my crimp tool was past its best. However after buying from another supplier, I can now put aside that idea.
Like other people have said, they have a high failure rate and cause great frustration and wasted time.
Please Screwfix get another supplier for both these and the Blue sized ones. "

Very poor quality
10 May 2012
By WigmorePumps
, Medway, Kent.
" I have purchased these from screwfix before, but these ones are of a much inferior quality. Compared to my old Screwfix stock, they only have 1 metal compression ring ( whereas before they were dual metal compression rings/sleeves). This seems to have tripled their failure rate. These are of very poor quality and in my opinion dangerous. I think these are from a different supplier or manufacturer because not only are they different mechanically, but these are glossy red whereas my old Screwfix stock are all matt red. I have thrown these away and sourced else where. "

Do not crimp up correctly
13 Apr 2012
By miffed2
, Manchester
" I have been using this type of crimp for years and cannot remember having any fail to crimp up even on very fine cable such as telephone or CAT5. This batch I am having a failure rate of about 50% even though I am using the correct ratchet crimping tool. These crimps only have one thin layer of metal inside, I have looked at others in my box of crimps and they appear to have two separate layers of metal under the insulation. These crimps are useless, I ended up throwing them away and getting another pack from an electrical wholesaler. I agree with the previous reviewer, Screwfix must have changed supplier as previous crimps I have purchased from Screwfix have been fine. "
