What kind of tools do I need for installation?
Firstly, you will need a cable cutter to cut wire rope since stainless steel wire rope is rather difficult to cut with a normal cutter. We have a portable and economical model CR12 for home applications, which is 8 inches. And a labor-saving model CR03 for Professionals, which is 18 inches.
If you are using swage terminals, you need a hydraulic crimper to swage the terminal end with cable, so the cable won't get loose under tension. Most of swage terminals are made of stainless steel, so you can't just buy a random hydraulic crimper and hope it could finish the job. The truth is the dies and the crimper is probably going to be broken after several times crimping. Please do remember to buy the customized crimper for stainless. Muzata provides 2 models of hydraulic crimper, both are customized for stainless steel swaging with custom dies made of special alloy.
If you are using ferrule type terminal kits, a hand crimper is enough for ferrule crimping. We have CR11, CT03 and CT04 for your choice.
Of couse if you are using swageless terminals, the crimper is unnecessary.
