C.SHERMAN JOHNSON–Hand Crimp Tool
Hand Crimp Tool
The right tool for hand crimping lifelines.
Hand crimp or hand swage terminals are great for on-the-boat installations, but they rely on pressure that can only be delivered by a tool designed for the task—anything less will compromise the terminal’s strength. C. Sherman Johnson engineered this hand tool to apply the proper pressure to their stainless steel hand crimp terminals. Two dies are integrated into the head for commonly used lifeline sizes. This tool is ideal for cruisers to make lifeline repairs away from reliable rigging services. Replace or repair lifelines on the boat or on a remote pacific island with a hand crimping tool made for the job.
