I bought this tool in hopes of making the corner crimps that would allow you to join sections of downspout together (male / female joint). This tool only makes indentations about 1/8" deep by 1/4" wide (similar to the indentations on the sides of the downspout) because it has a stop between the two half's of the tool that prevents the forming of deeper crimps. This then prevents you from indenting (deforming?) the corners of the downspout sections enough to allow one section to slip inside the other. Other than that, it's a well-made, quality tool; just didn't work for my application. Back to making these indentations with needle nose pliers, I guess. *sigh*

While the dip-grip is sufficient, I would like Klein to offer their Journeyman grip. Otherwise, it works well.

Improvised crimping of stove pipe and air ducts is a witch (as I learned over the years). Finally paid the money and bought a genuine tool..in terms of aggrivation spared it was money I should have laid out long ago. If you're just doing home maintenance, you will be pleased.

Should have bought these crimpers long time ago. Cutting and shaping with tin snips takes hours not to mention the cuts from the sharp edges. These are well worth the money even if you are using them occasionally. Great item to share with others doing gutter repairs.
Light weight adjustable and easy to use.
