    Where to buy top quality electrical crimp terminals online?...

    We all know how easy it is to buy cheapo terminals just about anywhere - but when you really need the best quality, such as RS, how do you know what you're going to receive?
    If anyone has used a supplier that sent them the good stuff, please let me know. Thanks.

    Probably one of the best around. If you want a quality crimp, you also need a quality crimper!

    Crimps are crap, use solder and heatshrink or those crimps that grip the cable rather than crush it.

    Altec Automotive supply good quality crimp connectors. But as mentioned above, a good crimp tool is also needed. After buying several cheap but useless crimpers, I eventually bought a Draper 64336 - £50 very well spent!

    Thanks guys, both look like good options. I bought a good crimping tool from Maplin at a discount not too long ago, also a nice wire stripper. Should do the job nicely.

    Polevote - excellent stuff.
    I got a good crimp tool and soldered as well. Takes a bit longer but is a whole lot better

    A friend of mine used the company linked below and was very impressed with quality and responsiveness.

    This is the crimp tool I have:

    https://www.12voltplanet.co.uk/insul...dard-duty.html

    - bit of a bastard to squeeze all the way shut when I first started using it - will strengthen your hand grip after a few goes, but it produces reliable sturdy crimps time after time.

    I also have one of these that I used on the previouss car:

    https://www.12voltplanet.co.uk/non-i...ight-duty.html

    - is good for non-insulated terminals where you thread the cover over the crimp, but unreliable for pre-insulated lucar connectors - you get wht you pay for.

    Always useful to drop big hints posted on the fridge at Birthday and Christmas time for these kinds of things.
