Pretty easy to use, you kinda have to hold both sides and then hit the pin to crimp. It works! I usually have to hit it around three times with a good swing.

You can permanently affix this one. I like that the spring provides tension to the lug. Works well.

I used this to crimp terminal ends to several 2AWG battery cables. For several, I used this tool in a bench vice. For a couple others, I used a hammer and struck the top of the tool. The tool dealt with the punishment well, and made a nice clean, sturdy crimp. No complaints! This isn't a tool I will use often, but I imagine it will provide many years of on-and-off use.

This tool is practical and simple to use; it looks cheap (being made in China), but does what you want it to do.
I like the way it holds the lug so you don't have to worry about it moving when you wind up to hammer away.

This was a site to store purchase. The crimper arrived in a timly manner and in good condition. This rugged tool performs well and will probably last a long time. I should have purchased one sooner.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Dipstick Easy to use and works well.
I recently bought a Lincoln Welding cable crimping tool from Home Depot. It's a simple tool to use and it enabled me to easily crimp lugs onto 1/0 battery cable for my 2.5 ton Army truck. The resulting cables were able to handle the 1,700 cold cranking amps at 24 volts my batteries can deliver. An inexpensive tool that works great!

If you don't want to spend $400 bucks on a crimping tool, get this one.
