Crimp Tool beauty contest

We recently entered our crimp tools in a beauty contest.

They lost.

They aren’t shiny, and they don’t ratchet. Some would say they have a face only a mother could love. They are the crimp tool equivalent of a horseshoe crab: simple, mostly unattractive, but built to perform their single-minded day-to-day function for a long time.

By now, you may be wondering why we choose to look at such homely items every day.

If you’re installing one of our Classic Updates or custom harnesses you’ll quickly find out. Our crimpers were specifically designed by Delphi-Packard in order to crimp the F-type terminals we supply with our kits. That means we’re providing the crimpers built by the people who make our terminals. They are the tool for the job when it comes to Packard F-series terminals.

After the first crimp, those looks might just grow on you.
