Rated 5 out of 5Â by Yearg Value for money
Indispensable if you are working with steel cables. It's a shame a hydraulic crimped is not stocked as this would be the ideal accompaniment.

Although these are for 4mm wire I actually used them for 2mm (ex-washing line) cable. My technique for closing them was to smack them between two 4lb lump hammers, one below to take the force from the other. Being aluminium they deformed beautifully around the under-size cable clamping it tight. Job done!.

Rated 4 out of 5Â by RichD More info would be handy
These crimps would probably hold a decent weight if installed correctly with the correct tool, but as it stands I wouldn't use them for a safety critical application. Great for my use - as plant supports. Much neater looking than the little bolted clamps.
Some info I would have found useful:
- you get eight of each type of piece, sixteen items in total
- The hole in the round pieces goes right through, so it can act as a stopper anywhere on the rope
- I was able to crimp the figure of eight shaped pieces with a mole grip as others have done
- The stoppers refused to be squashed by mole grips, but responded to a belt from a hammer

They do what it says on the tin!
Make a neat finish to the job.
Will have to wait and see whether the sea air affects them long-term.
