Motorcycle Open Barrel Crimp Tools, Wire Stripers, and  Extraction Removal Tool for Molex, Amp,Yazaki, Sumitomo, Amphenol - Deutsch, JAE terminals, By Pressmaster, Eclipse, Lisle, Channellock, Amphenol, Delphi.

Open Barrel Terminal Crimps are a very effective means to secure the wire to the terminal, usually outlasting everything else on the Motorcycle, A wire crimp is just fine by itself, but in some cases you may want to add a spot of solder to the conductor crimp, or if you are pinching the terminal with a pair of pliers or needle nose, you will definitely want to solder. Take a look at the bottom of the page. These are both nice Quality crimp tools for the budget minded, or novice. Personally I have about six different crimp tools that I use, and a couple of them cost well over $300.00 for the tool Frame, The dies are an additional cost.

Practice will help you become proficient with any new crimp tool, and it will be necessary for a good crimp.

Open Barrel Crimp Tool  For 14 - 24 AWG

Ratcheting Type



Made in USA - NOT recommended for 4mm Bullets and 250 AMP terminals.


I have used this and with a little practice you can get factory quality crimps with it.

This tool does the wire crimp, then the insulation crimps in 2 steps.

Great for Amphenol Terminals, 110, 187, and Sumitomo 040 and 090 terminals.

You can do  12 AWG, But technically the tool is recommended for 14 - 24 AWG.

The larger insulation die will do the 090 Sumitomo wire seals as well.

I only keep a couple in stock due to the high cost.

Great tool for the price.

 

$89.95 each ECT464

If you are Soldering your Open barrel Terminal Crimps, Here are some tips!!

It’s not hard to do, just takes some practice and patience.

So pick up extra terminals to practice with, Or use poor crimps that you have replaced. Like I did here.


I solder most of my lighting, battery cable, and high current relay and ground connections.

I use a 60 watt soldering iron, (60 - 70 Watt iron is perfect) gotta get the heat on there quick and get it done before you overheat the terminal, wire or melt the insulation.


Keep the heat where you want the solder to run at the terminal end of the wire, you don't want the solder to wick up the wire under the insulation!!


Just need a tiny bit of solder, don't want blobs of it all over the terminal or wire. (like the picture on the bottom left)


The 3 Terminals on the right are perfect, 60/40 rosin core solder. I personally use  .8 mm,  and 1 mm solder.


Anymore questions please feel free to email me!!!

Current flow for wire length and thickness quick reference chart .

Strand count plays a roll in this as well which is not taken into consideration on this Chart.

The higher the strand count the More current the wire can pass.


As you can see 16 AWG is more than enough for most wiring needs, it is used on Headlight circuits for most Japanese bikes from the factory, with little or no problems.

Here is a Proper Terminal crimp!!

14 AWG wire with a Thick 6mm ring terminal.



1 -Notice the insulation crimp does not pierce the wire insulation, but holds it nicely. And there is plenty of insulation for it the grab.


2 - The conductor/wire is extended slightly past the wire crimp.


3 - The terminal is not distorted.


4 -  The conductor/wire crimp has a Bell Mouth on the top edge closest to the insulator.

This means that neither the crimp tool, or the terminal cut into the wire stranding of the conductor.



Note: You may get close, But None of these crimp tools are capable of crimping these thick .81 6mm Ring terminals at this Quality.

The only down side to this one that I can see is The insulation crimp on anything

18 Gauge and Smaller comes out a little loose, But these were all done with thin wall insulation.

As can be seen in the picture below.Also a little tricky with the male bullet terminals.

Otherwise you will get great crimps every time.

Metri-Pack Crimp Tool

Crimp tool for Open Barrel Terminals - Eclipse Brand - for  10 -20 AWG

Thumb Screw for quick changing of Dies.

Compact, great for smaller hands, Comfort Grip Handles.


Works great for 3.5 and 4mm Bullet Terminals 187 - 250 - 312 Open barrel Terminals

It takes a bit of practice to get the .110 (2.8mm) terminals down, ratchet pressure release will need to be adjusted. These will even work well with non sealed 090 terminals.

I would recommend extra terminals to practice with for .110 and smaller terminals.

Use the Center Die for 18 gauge wire, when using 14-18 terminals.




Note: for 090 and smaller Sealed Terminals, use crimp tool ECT47 Micro Crimper.



$32.00 each - ECT 005


Optional dies are available for closed barrel, and open barrel pin terminals.

Everybody claims less compressive force with the Ergo models, if the manufacture and retailer say its so. It must be true right?


Same Die set as Tool list above, only difference being the frame.

Try using the Center Die for 18 gauge wire, when using 14-18 terminals.



None of these Eclipse Tool frames will rust, Very nicely made.
