Crimping Tools

A wire crimping tool, also referred to as a wire crimper, is an essential tool for any sort of project or install that requires electrical connections. A wire crimping tool is specifically designed for crimping, or pinching, the barrel and insulation of a terminal, lug, or other type of electrical connector onto a piece of wire or cable. This crimp is what allows an electrical connection to be made within a vehicle or other electrical application. Below is a full line of professional grade crimpers including ratchet-style, open barrel, closed barrel, connector series specific crimpers and more. Characteristics differ with each wire crimping tool that is offered. These differences provide you with specific wire crimping tool styles and benefits that will meet the needs of your project or application. Some of the varying wire crimper characteristics include crimp shape, gauge size, crimp style (hand vs. hammer), as well as what connector and connector types the crimping tool is designed for.
