The YRS range of hand tools are parallel action, ratchet style hand tools.

This hand tool is designed to crimp the applicable contact in strip form, while maintaining the reliability and performance of our semi-automatic tooling.


  • Ratchet mechanism for crimp conformation
  • Precision ground dies
  • Safe operation
  • 1 crimping section with removable dies
The YRS is designed to crimp small strips of terminals and shear them off the strip during the crimping process, in a similar way to a crimping applicator and die set used in a crimping press.
For most of the YRS range of hand tools, there are also versions in the YC and WC hand tool range, which are lower cost. but only crimp loose piece terminals.
