A Good Example of a Decent Crimper

A Good Example of a Decent Crimper

This crimper is designed specifically for use with heat shrink connectors. While certainly not the best quality it is a decent mid grade tool and far better than using the wrong tool on expensive connectors.


This tool will not damage the heat shrink and will yield a strong crimp when used on factory made heat shrink crimp connectors.


This pair is distributed by Ancor Products and are called the "Single Crimp Ratchet Tool" Part No. 702010.


I paid about $55.00 for this crimper at Hamilton Marine in Portland, Maine.


You can buy a nearly identical crimper, without the Ancor name, from Sailors Solutions for only $39.95.

Thanks - I bought the Sailor Solutions crimper, a good set of cutters, and my boat rewiring job has gone great. Strong, good crimps, heat shrink with a heat gun. This was the best on line information I found for doing the job right, but also quick.

Thank you
