HCT tools crimp connectors requiring sizes .042″ through .475″.

Hex tool headHex Sizes Stamped on Tool Jaw:
Both major and minor hex sizes are clearly stamped on the tool jaw to facilitate picking the right tool for the application.

Hex tool nutA Brass Nut for Easy Adjustment:
The nut on the adjustment wheel enables easy calibration in the field and ensures precise and consistent results. Because the nut is a common size, no special tool is required to make the adjustments.

An Innovative “Toggle Action” Design:
Unlike other crimp tools, HCT crimp tools do not use a ratchet closure that crimps even an improperly placed connector, resulting in a poor connection and signal loss. Instead, the innovative “toggle action” design ensures a proper crimp every time.

Field maintenance kitA Field Maintenance Kit:
Maintenance kits extend the life of HCT and ACT tools by keeping them in top operating condition. Each kit includes new pins, washers, linkage, a brass adjustment nut, and a cogged adjustment wheel.
