Overview

Our take on the Metra Crimp Tool and Connectors

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, 6 wire ties, and 3-1/4 feet of black heat-shrink tubing.

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, 6 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.

Keep your money...

Written by: ZaCrave from Round Rock, TX on April 1, 2016

2004 Toyota Tundra

Got here fine and as always Crutchfield is wonderful! This is the only product I've gotten from them that I was dissatisfied with. The wire strippers aren't sharp enough to get through anything and they don't line up. They aren't strong enough to crimp either. Gave them to my son as a toy since he sure can't hurt himself with them. Hopefully I just got a bad set. The accessory bag is great though and I've used a lot of the pieces.

Pros: Good accessory pieces.

Cons: Crimp tool worthless.

Don't waste your money

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

I ordered this and was unable to use the product to strip any wires. Luckily I still had a crimper from 30 years ago, that I was able to use to strip the wires needed.

Pros:

Cons: Can't strip wire

Garbage

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

the crimp tool was from a .99 cent store. I thought I would save a trip by ordering this... not the case!

Pros: the thought of it

Cons: everything about it

Sub par crimpers, excellent connectors selection!

Written by: RIkor from Texas on September 27, 2015

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Crimps weren't that great. Love the vast selection with the connectors that came with it though, along with the huge roll of electrical tape!

Pros: Great connectors and tape!

Cons: Crimps could be better quality in my opinion for the price.

Good connectors, bad tool

Written by: Skyknight from Ohio on August 23, 2015

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

The connectors are in very good quality. However, the crimping tool is awful. Does not recommend this tool.

Pros: Good connectors

Cons: The crimping tool is not in good quality.

Written by: Anonymous from Maine on July 26, 2015

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

I was skeptical with the bad reviews, but bought it anyways. Didn't think I was going to get a lot of stuff but for what I needed and used everything worked the way it is supposed to. So if you want to install your speakers and not spend a lot, buy this kit.

Pros: price with all the pieces

Cons: Not really but crimper- small holes should be at the tip and go down to large

Crimp tool was not great

Written by: Eli from Colorado on June 21, 2015

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

The crimp tool was very very stiff. Oiled it up but didn't do a whole lot. It got the job done, albeit very slowly.

Pros: Kit included everything I needed to get the deck installed.

Cons: Crimp tool was extremely stiff. The connectors seemed pretty cheap, but that could just be my inexperience.

Written by: Oz from Miami, FL on June 11, 2014

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

I was scared with all the bad reviews here but I bought it anyways. Didn't see anything wrong. Everything worked the way it is supposed to. If you want to pay more for quality do it but if you want to install your speakers and not spend a lot buy this kit.

Pros: Price

Cons: I wish the crimp tool would've been inverted with the smaller holes at the tip of the tool.

Pay for what you get

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

For the price, this is a great buy. Its obviously not going to compete with the big brands but you get what you pay for. Has everything you need for car stereo hookup

Pros:

Cons:

Packaging not merely terrible, but utterly inconvenient

Written by: John from Overland Park, KS on April 29, 2014

The other reviews adequately capture the product's strengths and weaknesses. This review speaks to its packaging. Although I'm sure Crutchfield would counter that they're motivated by eco-friendliness, I'll offer my disappointment that the flimsy plastic bag the crimp tool was shipped in was broken during shipment by the tool, causing the numerous tiny pieces included to be shuffled among the packaging peanuts. The process of sifting through the packaging in an effort to salvage the pieces was cumbersome and unnecessary, and certainly not worth Crutchfield patting themselves on the back for being eco-conscious. I couldn't care less about eco-friendliness. I do care about ease of utilizing the items I purchased.

Pros: None

Cons: Poorly executed packaging.

Metra Crimp Tool and Connectors

Written by: Jonathan In Richmond from Richmond,VA on April 27, 2014

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

I didn't need this tool set and honestly you can find these connectors locally, but for one stop shopping this was really convenient. The Crip tool is a bit too cheaply made, but I've got tool from the 50's so I judge hard.

Pros: Everything you can think of to install anything in an automobile

Cons: Crip tool is not up to heavy use.

Complete Garbage!!!

Written by: Vince from Alaska on September 14, 2013

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Complete Garbage!!! If I could give it less than one star I would. Wire strippers wont strip a thing.... you'd be better off with a pair of scissors and your teeth....

Pros: None

Cons:

Hey for the price what can you say

Written by: Dave C from Currituck, NC on July 23, 2013

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

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...

Written by: Some guy from DMV on June 8, 2013

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.

Piece of junk! Don't buy this product.

Written by: ParkT from Minneapolis, MN on May 8, 2013

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

The crimper is poorly made. It cannot strip the wire. The Connectors are so-so.

Pros: None.

Cons: The crimper is piece of junk.

crimp kit good value

Written by: John from San Antonio on September 23, 2012

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Good kit and had a ton of great parts---no worry of running out on one install job, much less a few!

Pros: Lots of parts, two rolls of tape

Cons: needs a box to go with it and the pliers are VERY stiff.

DONT BUY ....

Written by: sang from vegas on May 31, 2012

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

should've listen to other review before purchased this item . Crimpers is so bad cant even strip the wire . Have to stop by the local store to pick up a WORKING crimper so that i can finish the job. DO NOT BUY THIS ITEM YOU WILL BE MAD

Pros:

Cons:

sub-standard crimpers

Written by: Anonymous from APO AE on 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

Not thie best.

Written by: Ford Explorer from Charlotte, NC on April 3, 2012

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Cheap... It can't strip wires... do not buy it.

Pros: Still crimped wires good.

Cons: It couldn't strip the wires. And the wire cutters were terribly dull.

Q & A

Customer Q&A

Crutchfield asked  
Why did you buy this?

I bought this for my first installation about a year ago. Although the crimp tool did work, it was not precise enough so I bought a better one this year on my second installation. [ LARRY  Mar 27, 2016 ]
So that I could do a professional installation of my new stereo equipment. [ Zachary  Feb 26, 2016 ]
