A range of ratchet-action crimp tools with interchangeable die sets. All tools feature a fully-ratcheting cycle with safety release lever, six ratchet gear settings for adjustable crimping force, and thumbscrew retention of dies.
Spare thumbscrews are also available. These tools are also available as kits, complete with three die sets, in a convenient soft storage case – see Paladin coaxial connector crimp tool kits.
The 1302 is an economical tool, with moulded, profiled plastic hand grips. Length 225mm, weight 495g (excluding dies). Die sets are ordered separately as required.
This advanced tool features rubber-embedded handles for greater comfort, a reduced handle grip distance to make it easy to operate for both large and small hands, and an angled head to reduce operator wrist bends during operation. A higher crimp force is produced with less hand force, so the hand does not tire as easily, including the last ‘click’ required to complete the crimp process. Length 250mm, weight 585g (excluding dies). Die sets are ordered separately as required.
