The Modified Manual Hydraulic Crimping Tool is used to securely fasten crimp sleeves to cable endpoints. This tool is a standard YYQ-300 Hydraulic Crimping Tool refitted specifically for use with the Cable Bullet cable rail system. It includes a custom hexagonal die made of hardened tool steel, designed to crimp Cable Bullet crimp sleeves. The YYQ-300 Hydraulic Crimping Tool has the necessary 16-ton pressure capacity to comfortably crimp the 316 stainless steel sleeves. The result is a clean, even hexagonal crimp along the length of the sleeve which guarantees each line will hold under pressure once tensioned. For ease of use, this package also includes a stabilizer bracket for the crimper tool, which allows for convenient one-handed operation. To download instructions for best practices when using the crimper, see Crimper Tool: Use, Maintenance, & Troubleshooting.
This kit also includes a pair of cable cutters designed for cutting 5/32" steel wire and a custom driver for use with any drill/driver to set Bullets. For projects using more than 30 Cable Bullet kits, consider ordering additional drivers.
Use the 3/32" Allen Wrench or 6" Hex Socket Head Power Bit to advance the set screws that tension each cable run.
