Surprisingly High Quality Crimper Review by BobInNJ
Rating
This crimper appears to be very well built and ideal for working between joists. The longer movable handle tip is only 13 inches from the crimper tip. The handles span about 7.5 inches when beginning the crimp and touch when finished. It can be a one hand crimp because of the enormous leverage as the crimp finishes! I've only tested it on a new empty crimp ring thus far - no actual use.. The ring ended up perfectly round with exactly the size of the closed tool opening and easily passed the "go" test. The "nogo" test opening is smaller than the "go" opening, so I fail to see how any crimp by this tool could ever produce a ring diameter smaller than the tool opening and thus be too tight. If the crimp jaws close all the way, the crimps should always be perfect. When one first opens the handles it appears that the tool can not fit over a ring, but pulling lengthwise on the movable handle opens the jaws to more than one inch and the jaws can be easily held open by keeping the handles together in one hand. An ingenious design! After the ring is in the jaws, spreading the handles to a span of about 7.5 inches allows the jaws to close for the beginning of crimping. I look forward to using this tool and trust that it will produce crimps far superior to cinch rings and be far easier to use than a tool needing a huge "wingspan" to fully open. (Posted on 4/28/15)
