S & G Tool Aid 18920 Ratcheting Terminal Crimping Kit- 5 Piece

I wanted talk more about the S&G Tool Aid terminal crimping kit. I did a quick preview in this post , but I wanted to expand on my thoughts after using it for a lot of recent wiring. Over the years I think I’ve bought half a dozen terminal crimpers trying to find something that is somewhat affordable, but produces quality crimps. So far this is the best I’ve found. I’ve used it on several Delphi Metri-Pack connectors from 630 down to 150 and it has been great. 

Here is the crimper itself with the storage case, information sticker, and the interchangeable jaws.

Changing the jaws is straightforward, just need a flat or Philips (I prefer a Philips) screwdriver to remove the retaining bolt and slide the jaw out and the new one in and tighten.

Here’s a big 12ga Metri-Pack 630 crimp, to me it’s pretty much spot on.

And here is a Metri-Pack 150 series (both sealed and unsealed) using 20ga wire, also very nice.

Here is an example on an insulated terminal, I do not use these much, but it works well for these too!

Anyway, not much more you can write about a terminal crimper, but if you’re looking for a quality, reasonably priced, made in USA tool this is for you.
