If the crimp is too hard (heat shrink insulation is damaged), or too soft (wire can be easily pulled out of the crimp), you can adjust the crimp height:
- Remove set screw
- Rotating the adjustment wheel counterclockwise increases the crimp force and decreases the crimp height
- Rotating the adjustment wheel clockwise decreases the crimp force and increases the crimp height
- Reinsert set screw
If it is necessary to open the crimping tool prior to full closure, press the handles together slightly. Press the emergency unlocking quick release trigger (push it in) and open the handles simultaneously.
