August 6, 2009--Thomas & Betts' redesigned Comfort Crimp compression tools have a patented linkage design and ergonomically designed soft grip handles built to reduce strain and increase comfort.

This new family of crimping tools covers a broad range of compression connectors, including Sta-Kon insulated and non-insulated terminals, heat shrinkable terminals, and select Color-Keyed lugs. Thomas & Betts has also obtained a UL listing for the combination of the new Comfort Crimp tools and the specified connectors within the tools' range.

The Comfort Crimp tools crimp terminals or lugs onto copper or aluminum wire, and are used by a variety of field service and installation technicians, assembly workers, engineers and lab technicians. They are used on cable assemblies for a variety of industries, including automotive, heavy equipment, telecom, electronic equipment, panel building, etc.

The tools require 25% less handle force than previous models and feature the Shure-Stake mechanism that ensures the crimp is complete and the proper amount of force has been applied before releasing the crimped terminal and wire.

These tools all feature a patent-pending Crimp Assist foot that helps stabilize the tool against the work surface while performing difficult crimps on larger connectors.
