For use with 1/8 in., 1/16 in., 3/32 in., and 3/16 in. steel braided wire...…….. non coated wire. IT'S NOT FOR ELECTRICAL WIRE. I would use the right tool for the job, if it is not tight, vibration and corrosion could cause heat build up, or arcing to create a fire.

For use with 1/8 in., 1/16 in., 3/32 in., and 3/16 in. wire ...if it were in mm 3/16 is .75mm larger if that helps. I would think it would work, to be sure check with manufacturer.

Poor in mfg
Wish I would have read the comments before I bought. First of all I now this is cheap for this type of tool but I only had 2 to install so should be good enough right. Wrong - first noticed the things would not close evenly ( fixed with paint removal and aligning tool) then notice that the jaws would not close properly on the smaller ferrule (problem was with shoulder bolts for the top bracket that hold the jaws together - had to open the holes slightly) was finally able to crimp the two ferrule. I have been working as a cnc mechanic and semiconductor technician for over 21 years and have not every seen a more inconsistent mfg process and design ( looks like they are hit or miss)

BUYER BEWARE!!! Home Depot/Everbuilt has a big problem on their hands. How many thousands of these defective tools are out there!!!??? I purchased one of these and when I went to use it the ferrule wouldn't fit in the correct slot. (I was using 3/32" ferrules). So I thought either the ferrules were the wrong brand or that I just got a bad tool. I went back to HD today and THREE of the 4 tools they had in stock had the SAME PROBLEM!!! It was only the 4th tool that had jaws that actually opened wide enough to accept the ferrule!!! See the photo of the difference between the tools! The one on the LEFT is the one you want. It has the rounded carriage bolts (on one side, and a nut on the other.... instead of a nut and a bolt....) and notice how the cross brace is a little lower, which I believe allows the jaws to open a bit wider. Also, I didn't realize till today that the tool was actually made by Everbuilt as well. Ironic that a company would make a tool that doesn't fit their own brand of ferrules. The only thing I could think is that maybe they changed the ferrule size recently and then had to change their tool as well, and the new ones haven't hit the stores yet? As if that would make any sense.... LOL. To top it all off, I told two HD workers that they should pull the remaining 3 tools from the shelf after I proved to them that they were defective and they just shrugged and walked away! ROFLMAO!!!

The holes don't line up properly no matter how much you adjust them. One side is thicker than the other. The holes are smaller than standard swag tools are so the ferrules squeeze out on one side. They are not heat treated or hardened crimper so you can easily file them or damage the teeth. They will crimp to hold a bit but I would not use them to hang anything you don't want to fall. I went to both stores here in town and out of 9 I found 1 that was ok but not great. These might get you thru a temporary situation but I'd recommend buying a proper swag tool and not this one.

For under $30 you can't ask for much. Used it to crimp 3/32 cables to secure luggage our from "walking away". Just like the others stated, handles had to be completely opened to fit ferrule then had to use the floor for leverage to close and crimp. It works and could be better but the crimp is decent

I usually do extensive research on most things I buy and saw a lot of negative reviews on this tool. I must say I'm glad I did not go by these reviews. The tool is well built and worked perfect.

It takes a lot of strength to crimp 3/16” ferrules. It helped to clamp the top of one of the handles just below the hinge joint in a vice while resting the bottom of the handle against the work bench. This allowed me to use both hands and the weight of my upper body to push on the other handle.
