This is exactly what you’d expect from Klein—sturdy, easy to use, and produces nice results. This tool will never wear out judging by the build strength and how quickly the job gets completed. If you need to make even a single custom duct, this tool pays for itself. A dryer duct needed to be cut down to proper depth through a block wall when transitioning from a flex duct to a dryer vent box to save the extra depth because the laundry room is tight. This crimper made the difference with this project—it took almost no time at all to make the necessary crimps to make things fit. DIYers and pros alike will find tremendous value in time savings alone with this tool.

Folks know Klein tools for their exceptional electrical tools, so it was surprising to me to find a Klein tool for basically HVAC round duct piping work. So with this crimping tool it is just as well made as their others. It has similar design to other brands with compound handle and heavy durable metal blades for crimping. I also use a Wiss version 5 blade crimper, (See pic) so in comparison, the Klein tool crimper is larger in size and also has a crimping depth of about 1 1/2 inches. I don't normally crimp to that depth but if you ever had to on a job, this tool can do it. (See pic). This is made in Taiwan, not China. (See pic). I have several other tools that are made in Taiwan and I find them well made too. And you can see that construction wise it also uses plastic lock nuts (see pic). Overall another great tool from Klein tools

Easy to use
[This review was collected as part of a promotion.] Since I’ve had this tool I’ve used it on sheer metal ductwork and rain gutters. It works great and is easy to use. When connecting two of the same size pieces it only takes a few minutes and your done. If you need to cut a long piece to the correct size and then add to an existing piece use the tool and your done. This tool will last you a lifetime and be ready when you need it.

    These work great for down spout elbows, and tubes for gutter work. Ive yet to use them for other things, however word is they are tough enough for stove pipe and duct work. They do crimp almost a 1/2' inch a bit more than the Malco brand. Solid. Well made. Klein makes quality products.

    Product worked like a charm. Crimped the edges perfectly with little effort. My only regret is that I never purchase the tool sooner. It allowed me to use virtually every bit of the duct pipe(s) length. I could not be more pleased with this tool.

    I found the product easy to use, although extended use puts a strain on the hands (which is to be expected from a hand tool). I've had the tool for a little under a month and ran 5 lengths of HVAC registers and one return. It is definitely a must have since the factory crimps on the tubes do not fit as they should.

    Klein Tools are the industry standard. They are the highest quality longest lasting tools on the market. I am extremely pleased with their HVAC product line. I am thankful that product line is available at The Home Depot. I have used this tool as a do it yourselfer but I have used much more expensive tools as a professional HVAC installer that were not as good as this.

    If you have done any work with ducting, you know you need one of these tools. Any time you have to slide one vent into another, you must crimp the end of the one to be inserted. This tool will make that job quick, easy, and efficient. So what sets the Klein tool apart from others in this class? Quality and craftsmanship. To put it plainly, if you want a tool that will work smoothly, and last over the long haul, this is the one you want.

    This thing works FAST and EASY. The curved top handle is comfortable because it fits the palm of my hands better than other straight handled models. The handles are plenty long enough to give ample leverage, and leverage is a key factor when crimping steel! Tempered steel blades are perfectly spaced and held firmly in place. Thanks to the center hinge bolt, these can be disassembled for cleaning, lubrication or repair. That makes these and heirloom lifetime tool, NOT a replaceable throw-away gadget. I wholeheartedly recommend this to any trades-person or crafter who works with sheet metal joinery.

    Installing a Globalflex 4" by 2 foot flexible aluminum pipe ( From HD ) between a gutter down spout and transitioning to a 6" pipe required modification. Since I was going to have to cut and re-crimp the aluminum gutter what better tool than the Klein 5 blade crimper. While this heavy duty 10 plus inch tool will easily crimp aluminum, it can handle 24 gauge steel or 28 gauge stainless steel. This is an invaluable tool used in the A/C and heating industry. I have used needle nosed pliers to make a crimp but this is faster and makes a cleaner crimp. This is one of those tools, unless your in the trades, you may not need everyday, but when you need it will save time and frustration.

    5 BLADE DUCT CRIMPER by Klein While not always my first pick, Klein tools are always high quality. This is no exception. I had a small venting project for a microwave and this made the job easy. It does take a little hand strength and remember to use the farthest end of the tool-- it is harder to crimp if you choke up to the business end. Buy this with confidence.

    Great tool. I never knew such a tool like this Duct Crimper existed. I have always just went out and purchased a length of duct longer than necessary that already had the required crimp. Now that I have this tool I will be able to cut and crimp my own duct and get it to be an exact fit. The Duct Crimping tool works great. After moving the crimp around the duct and overlapping one blade it looked like a professional job. I was very impressed by how easy it was to use. The handle has a thumb grip and the other side has a tab that fits between your first two fingers to give you a secure hold.

    Typical high quality from Klien. I used this extensively to connect up 22 gauge stove pipe fittings for the dust collection system in my new shop. It was ideal to adapt a five inch steel duct to the inlet of my new cyclone and to connect a variety of 5, 4, and 3" steel duct runs together with a motley collection of ABS and PVC dust collection and sewer fittings. This is a sturdy, well made crimper. It has a double action hinge which gives plenty of leverage, and the fat overmolded handles are comfortable to grip. It makes crisp, neat crimps.

    If you are familiar with Klein tools then you will appreciate the quality of the 5 blade crimper. This one replaces a 3 blade tool I've used for years. The Klein crimper is a heavier duty tool and has longer blades than my 3 blade tool. The longer blades will provide for a 'deeper' seating of the duct pipe and give a better seal. The Klein crimper also provides a better 'look' and control of the pipe crimp. Can't go wrong buying this crimper.
