Quit Cracking Your Knuckles With That Old Pair.

I have been fixing coax cable around my houses for over thirty years. If you have ever experienced doing that kind of a job then you will notice that you will need a good pair of crimping tools. If you do like I did then you will probably start out with some real cheap imitation of a pair that will just get you by. Well I am here to tell you that you will be wasting your money if you do that, you may as well just purchase a good set because you will definitely notice how much better and easier it is to crimp the ends on the end of a coax cable with a real nice set of crimping tools. This pair of crimpers can be found at Home Depot or you can order this on line from Tiger Direct for less than twenty dollars.

Description
These pair of crimpers is 12” x 5” in diameter and only weighs about a mere 1.5 pounds. This set is also made of a high strength carbon steel coated with a thin layer of lamination coating the entire pair of crimpers and this also come with a PVC covering on each of the handles. This has a ratcheting action and comes in blue and red. This also comes with a limited warranty, 12 months for parts and labor.

Experience
I first started out using a little pair of cheap crimpers from radio shack. After a while I got tired of redoing my jobs, because of the ends being too loose. This particular set cuts the end of the coax cable off nice and clean and once you apply a new end there is sufficient gripping power to keep the ends on forever. Since I purchased these I have yet to go back and redo any of my jobs that I did. These fit nicely into my pouch or into my back pocket for transportation. This has spring loaded jaws so that when you are done the jaws will pop lose when you release them from their grip. Anyone can learn to use these because they are so simple to use. No longer will you have to wait for the cable company to come out and see what the problem is, all you will have to do is purchase some ends and keep them in a special spot so that when you need them they are available for you to use. These are just like using a pair of strengthening exercise hand grippers. Just keep squeezing until they stop and then release them.

Conclusion
I highly recommend that you throw away your old pair and purchase a new pair of these. You will immediately notice a positive result in the reception that you will get from a tight connection. Even though you will not use these that often it is nice to know that you have a really good pair available for you to use. Five stars for this product.
