The 4-slot designed crimp tool allows you to be able to crimp a wide variety of different size gauges. The tool is recommended to be used for splicing high-tensile wire together, using crimp sleeves. It is carefully inspected and guaranteed to last for five years (with proper use). Test pulls of crimp sleeves are done with each of these tools to be sure our inspections are giving you proper strength. With proper care, these tools can last a lifetime.
1-2 Slot = 14.5 and 16-gauge wire
2-3 Slot = 12.5 gauge wire
3-4 Slot = 10 and 11-gauge wire & 14 and 15-gauge barbed wire
Instructions: Check a crimped sleeve, with the gauge provided. If the pressed portion won’t go into the gauge, adjust your tool. With the handles open, loosen the locking screw with an Allen wrench for one or two turns. Turn the adjustment screw clockwise for about a 1/4 turn. Tighten the lock screw and then make a press check with the gauge. Repeat as needed until the gauge easily passes over the pressed sleeve. Clean and oil the tool occasionally. Except for some spring at the final closing; an “empty” tool should work freely.
