OMG. Finally! I've been trying to find a low-cost crimper for Dupont-style open-barrel pins and sockets for years. After purchasing a couple of tools that failed to fully measure up, I finally have one that crimps these little guys perfectly.
This is not in any way, shape or form a promotion of Amazon. But Amazon is where I found it, so here's the link to that site with this tool. Preciva Crimper on Amazon. No disclaimer needed, because I don't get jack from Amazon, and don't want to. I just want to praise this tool as worthy of the "Things That Work" badge.
While $45.00 may seem like a lot on the surface, I've spent that much for a set of dies without a handle in my years of professional work. I see it as a bonus that you get all those other goodies with the tool.
I'm excited to finally end my search for a quality crimper for the very common Dupont connectors.
Truly, the Preciva Crimper is another Thing That Works!
