OEM ratcheting crimper for Bendix/King Edge contacts. This crimper is from the OEM line of Sargent tools, and is made for the 030- 01007-xxcontacts. The same contacts are used on quite a few Narco radios as well. The crimper is labeled with the same Molex tool P/N- HTR 2445A, as the one recommended in some King installation guides.
The crimper has a built in positioner for holding the contact in position on the crimp die, and allows you to make excellent professional crimps. This really beats the alternative method of installing the contacts that is mentioned in the installation manuals- needle nose pliers and solder.... can you spell slow me down!
Please note, we have found that the plastic locator (barely visible above)does not always fit the contact, some of these are very tight, or undersized and will need to be slightly modified. I typically use a flattened drill bit as a milling bit to enlarge the recessed portion of the locator.
