Crimping Deustch connector terminals

6 posts in this topic

Bought the bits for a 2-way Deutsch DT connector from MSEL so I can make my light bar removable...

Awesome, quality product - highly recommend. 

 

Has anyone had experience with crimping the terminals without the special (expensive) crimping tool? 

I have a range of other crimping tools available.

There are 2 types of pins available; the barrel crimps like you have above, and a traditional style folding crimp.

 

I don't think there is a nice way to crimp the barrel ones without the obscenely expensive tool, sorry :(

The crimper is only $99. A lot for a one off job, but it's always good to have the right tools on hand. I would be tempted to use a hammer.

      Hiya, would anyone in/near Wellington have a spare passenger floor mat for a 2006 Legacy b4? I’ve looked at a few aftermarket options but I’d like to find an original. Cheers!
