Our take on the Metra Crimp Tool and Connectors

by Buck Pomerantz

An outstanding value, this 150-piece kit includes a crimping tool that firmly attaches connectors to wires ranging in size from 10-gauge to 22-gauge, as well as stripping up to 10-gauge wire. You also get a huge assortment of connectors, two rolls (approx. 25 feet) of PVC electrical tape, 10 wire ties, and 3-1/4 feet of black heat-shrink tubing.

You'll find this kit helpful for many different types of car audio installations. Most in-dash receivers don't come with bullet connectors on the speaker and power leads, so you can use this crimper to connect your Crutchfield wiring harness to the receiver's wires. You'll also need a heat gun or another high-heat source for the heat-shrink tubing (hair dryer will not work).

You'll also find this kit indispensable if you are installing an amplifier, a set of component speakers, or a car security system. All crimp parts feature long-lasting nylon insulation. Warranty: 30 days.

Hey for the price what can you say

Written By Dave C, Currituck, NC on Tuesday, July 23, 2013

This is what I can say...it worked and got the job done. The crimp tool is sub par but hey for the price, if you want more quality you will spend more. I don't do a lot of electrical work so for just this one job they did fine.
Pros:
Lot's of connectors tape for days....
Cons:
Crimp tool low quality.

Ehhhh...

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
 
The various connectors seem quality, tape is fine and the shrink wrap tubing was a good enough size for my wiring harness (could have been just a hair smaller to be perfect though), but the stripping/crimping tool is completely and utterly worthless. Even using the notches several gauges smaller than the wire I was using and it still wouldn't even begin to strip. The cutting edges are painted over and duller than spoon to boot. To make matters worse, somehow the end of it wouldn't even crush a crimp connector either! The stripping tool went in the garbage, the connectors I'll keep.
Pros:
Nice assortment of connectors. Enough electrical tape to last many projects.
Cons:
Stripping tool completely useless. Could have used more heat-shrink tubing - one car stereo wiring harness and I've used the majority of it already.

The crimper is piece of junk.

sub-standard crimpers

Written By Anonymous, APO AE on Tuesday, April 24, 2012
 
Crimpers are horribly made wire cutters do not cut speaker wires and stripers do not close far enough to strip insulation. I had to use a leatherman to cut and strip the wires after spending good money on this "crimptool"
Pros:
connectors and electrical tape good quality
Cons:
crimpers
