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.
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.
Cons: Can't strip wire
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
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.
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.
Great set. Only thing the crimp tool is a bit stiff upon operating.
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
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.
Used in installing a new headunit, the crimping tools and parts came in handy with the additional sized connectors.
More than I needed, for the price it can't be beat.
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.
Cons: I wish the crimp tool would've been inverted with the smaller holes at the tip of the tool.
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
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.
Cons: Poorly executed packaging.
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.
Worked, but cheap.
Did the job
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....
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.
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 poorly made. It cannot strip the wire. The Connectors are so-so.
Cons: The crimper is piece of junk.
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.
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
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
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.
