You can not compare a £18 pair of ferrule crumpets to a £145 pair of k …You can not compare a £18 pair of ferrule crumpets to a £145 pair of knives it’s like comparing a robin reliant with a rolls Royce


I don’t think op is comparing just saying it is a cheaper alternative. And a car comparison compared to a hand tool comparison is OTT i think.

I am not sure what you would actually use a crimped connection on in this …I am not sure what you would actually use a crimped connection on in this day and age. With 240v work personally I think there is too much chance of cables being pulled off. Then with automotive work modern cars rely on the measurement of resistance which rules out crimped connections because of the amount of degredation over time.


Automation industry use these crimps, normally 24 volt control.

Well to me it looked like a comparison, a knipex one Is best against some cheap aftermarket rubbish no comprision
I enjoy crimping one off

Crumpets, pairs of knives, comprisions... I'm confused...

All Stranded cables... control circuits and panels for neatness... small cables less than 1mm2... most importantly not being a rough arse and showing copper at a termination...
I have a set of these, and I cannot fault them. Used them for many more jobs than my original task. Once it's crimped using the correct size ferrule, you would have a hard job pulling the cable out IMO.
Had these for a good couple years now and haven’t let me down! Found them quicker and easier to use than the more expensive pairs as you don’t have to check size, one crimp does all!

I bought a similar kit last week after seeing a few efixx YouTube videos.
These make a much better connection on stranded cable.
CPC Farnell have a good range of ferrules if you need varieties not included in the kit.

I work in the electronics industry and we use this type of tool ever day. Not so much for car electronics which we also do (cable looms for stretch limousines) more electrical cabinets

That is a niche though. This is a general consumer site and I do worry about people using crimping tools in the wrong environment.

To be fair even if it's not crimped on tight this been a four side crimp which will make a square crimp instead of the type we use which leaves a flatter crimp, the screw that holds it in place in the connection will also crush the Ferrell stopping the wire from coming out.

I have voted hot and ordered a set. I do worry about the general public buying products like this though.
Ferrules will and always will be a must for professional electricians. I personally use them all the time too. The Perciva brand also does the job
£28.99 now
Yeah I missed this one too. Added to basket so will wait for it to drop again
I bought these on Saturday just randomly, seen some on YouTube just thought they would come in handy saves putting a blob of solder on end of wire for stranded copper wire. I tried them today well impressed.
