Badly Designed Tool
I bought this tool to crimp 3/16" wire rope ferrules for custom made tree branch support lines, using Everbilt 3/16" ferrules. When I got it home and up the ladder, I tried making my first compressive stroke. I couldn't. The arms of this tool didn't even come close to being < 90° once the ferrule was seated in the jaws. So, I brought the tool back to HOME DEPOT and talked to the tool dept manager. He gave it a shot by opening up the jaws to seat the ferrule, then putting one handle on the floor and then bearing down with his entire body weight to complete the crimp. I told him to come to my house and try that up on a ladder next to a tree. The problem with this tool is that the force needed to crimp the largest tool ferrule (3/16") is NOT located at the END of the jaws, where this hole is, but next to the fulcrum point that has the tiniest hole. The hole positions are backwards for the amount of force needed to crimp. It's like a kid trying to cut thick cardboard with simple scissors. They can do it easily enough if the cutting takes place next to the screw where the blades meet. It is almost impossible to cut it from the tips of the scissors where the force is weakest. t's the same with this tool. The different size holes are backwards. The largest, 3/16" hole should be closest to the pivot screw, not the farthest away. Simple fix. Do not buy.

    This is a good product. I bought it for one job that I had installing a threaded cable to string Edison bulb light strands on. I paired it with turnbuckles and plant hangers. It came out great! The tool was very tight to begin with and made it difficult to work with up on a ladder. Next job, we’ll do that work down on the grown. Once I got the crimp and wire in place it cinched up nicely with one good squeeze and the job was done. I have it in the tool box now and it’s nice to have it when I need it.

    Quality control abysmal, go in store and find tool
    The Everbuilt correctly crimped the sleeve, as shown in pictures. If you intend to get the Everbuilt tool, go to the store and make sure the tool is correctly aligned and of good quality before purchasing. It seems to have terrible quality control, as listed in reviews around the web. I confirmed 2 of the 3 Everbuilt tools I saw in stores were absolutely abysmal in assembly or defects, but the one I got was the best of all of them. Just go in store and find the best looking tool. You might have to go to a few stores before finding a quality one. DONT order the Everbuilt tool online, just go in store as its a lottery what you will get. Better to go to the store and find a quality swage tool. The Everbuilt requires much less strength than other swaging tools due to its correct sizing and longer leverage length. The other swage tool in the pictures is the Iwiss swage tool ordered online. It is NOT recommended as it is incorrectly sized and absolutely destroyed the 3/16 sleeve, as shown in the second sleeve, from the right of the loop on the top cable.

      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
