Crimp Tool 97 53 14

High quality Knipex crimping tool for bootlace ferrule. This handheld crimp tool is designed to compress pieces of material together with the size of 0.08 – 10mm². The transmission ratio of this crimping tool has been well designed and therefore hand friendly providing a comfortable grip and allowing the user to crimp easily with the perfect end result. The crimping can be easily carried out leaving a hexagonal profile on the crimped end sleeves or ferrules making it much easier if the connection dimensions are tight. This crimping tool also automatically adjusts to the size of the bootlace ferrule to make sure accurate work is performed with each crimp. This feature allows the user not to spend time measuring the force when crimping because the crimping tool integral lock with release mechanism ensures the right amount of pressure automatically reaches the bootlace ferrule.
