DescriptionThe original Color-Keyed, Comfort Crimp, Compression Tool previously set the standard for manual crimp tools. Now, Thomas & Betts has made a great tool even better with the newly redesigned Color-Keyed TBM45S Comfort Crimp, Compression Tool. We kept all the performance features that made this tool a best seller, such as the Shure-Stake mechanism and color-coded die wheel, and focused on creating the best possible user experience in terms of comfort and reduction of user strain. Ergonomic handles position the user's hands correctly to minimize the risk of strain, and soft, over-molded grips cushion fingers and palm for user comfort. A new Crimp Assist foot stabilizes the tool when the user needs to rest it on a work surface for leverage when crimping larger connectors. Best of all, the redesigned Comfort Crimp tool requires 25% less handle force to complete the crimp cycle than the previous generation tool - and up to 75% less handle force than competing tools! Requiring the lowest handle force of any tool in its class, the new Comfort Crimp tool provides maximum comfort to installers, without sacrificing the durability or performance associated with Thomas & Betts tools.
