Crimping Instructions

1. Strip wire lead removing 5/32 in. (4 mm) of insulation.

2. Compress handles until ratchet automatically opens.

NOTE

Always perform core crimp before insulation/seal crimp.

3. Determine the correct dye or nest for the core crimp by checking with the appropriate crimp table.

NOTE

When the word "TIP" appears in the Crimp Table, use the tip of the tool specified to perform the core crimp procedure. See

Figure B-21.

4. Lay the back of the core crimp tails on the appropriate nest. Be sure the core crimp tails are pointing towards the forming jaws.

5. Gently apply pressure to handles of tool until crimpers slightly secure the core crimp tails.

6. Insert stripped wire between crimp tails. Verify that wire is positioned so that short pair of crimp tails squeeze bare wire strands, while long pair folds over insulation or seal material.

7. Squeeze handle of crimp tool until tightly closed. Tool automatically opens when the crimping sequence is complete.

8. Determine the correct dye or nest for the insulation/seal crimp.

9. Lay the back of the insulation/seal crimp tails on the appropriate nest. Be sure the insulation/seal crimp tails are pointing towards the forming jaws.

10. Squeeze handle of crimp tool until tightly closed. Tool automatically opens when the crimping sequence is complete.

11. See Figure B-22. Inspect the quality of the core (3) and insulation/seal (2) crimps. Distortion should be minimal.
