User Guide
Thank you for chosing this crimping tool. Please read this
user guide carefully before use of this product.
Copper foil cable cannot be connected directly to a hearing
loop driver’s loop terminal. Instead the copper foil has to
be joined with a common round cable before connection to
the loop terminal. This system with terminal clips is used
as a fast, easy and inexpensive alternative to soldering the
connection wire to the copper foil. The crimping tool is
used both to fit the terminal clips onto the copper foil and to
crimp the terminal clips to the connection cable.

extra cable to facilitate connection to the
driver’s loop terminal.
Strip of about 6mm of insulation and insert
the cable into the terminal clips round top. If
you use a double stranded cable, both ends are
inserted in parallel. If you use a single stranded
cable, bend the cable double as shown in
