  • Crimping Closed End Crimp Connectors

    How do you crimp closed end crimp connectors?

    Using closed end crimp connectors for the first time. By googling, seems like you you can crimp them however you want. I also could find no specific tool for sale. Basically using these on low voltage line (12 volts 2 amps tops).

    I kind of expect a crimp tool for any job, and google makes it seems like its the Wild West and however you feel like.

    I do not think that device takes much of a specialized tool other than a typical crimping tool. Here is one of probably thousands of devices available.

    If you search just for crimpers you will get a surprising array of feminine hair crimping supplies. Be sure and include wire in you search string.

    I don't have one but I have probably half a dozen different tools that would do the job adequately. For 120 volt AC i prefer wire nuts and for bare ground wire there is a simple ferrule that works.

      I'd call that low power automotive stuff. Not UL for household wiring

        Thanks. I have a crumpet similar to that already. I’m probably reading too much into this, but that crimped and the ne I have are designed for the blue, red, and yellow automotive insulated crimp connectors, and these closed end connectors are white. This is probably what I’ll use.

        I can’t seem to multi quote for some reason. Mike90250 this is for a low volatage circuit on my RV. These are the types of connectors used throughout the RV on the low voltage lines. I’m simply adding one more line.
