TETRA-CRIMP Fixed Die Hand Tool

Designed to Ensure Quality and Ease of Use

Our TETRA-CRIMP hand tool (part #59824-1) is designed to crimp red (22-16), blue (16-14), yellow (12-10), black heavy duty (16-14 HD) and green heavy duty (20-16 HD) PIDG and PLASTI-GRIP contacts and splices. Features include a fixed die (crimper), movable die (anvil), locator/wire stop and a ratchet. A spring-loaded locator/wire stop holds and positions the contact, while limiting the insertion distance of the stripped wire into the contact. The ratchet confirms full crimping of the contact and prevents crimping of an improperly positioned contact or splice, providing excellent electrical and tensile performance of the crimped contact. Each crimp nest is color-coded to indicate the wire size and match the insulation color of the contact or splice.
