Our crimping tools
Crimping refers to the process of joining together two pieces of equipment securely and permanently. Perhaps it’s two pieces of metal or, as we usually do, securing a termination onto wire rope. Offering the ultimate in portability our hand-held crimping pliers can be used to securely crimp terminals onto rope.
These crimping terminals are small metallic clips, usually constructed from steel or aluminium, and can help to secure your equipment in a variety of shapes. Perhaps to create an eye loop, for example, the equipment is fed through the terminal, and then the crimping tool presses the piece together, leaving a permanent lock.
The key benefits of our crimping tools are:
They are strong, tough, compact and very durable. These are qualities that are offered by the rope itself too
Usually constructed from stainless steel, our crimping tools will be highly resistant to corrosion. May also be manufactured from aluminium or copper, please enquire below

They are portable and easy-to-use with non-slip, grip handles
