1313G1 HAND CRIMP TOOL Specification Sheet - PEI
Miscrimps or Jams
Should this tool ever become stuck or jammed in a partially closed position. Do Not force the handles
open or closed. The tool will open easily by pressing up on the ratchet release lever in the movable
handle. (See Figure 8).
Specification Sheet
How to Adjust Tool Preload
This hand tool is factory preset to 25 to 45 lbf. (111 to 200 N) preload. It may be necessary over the life
of the tool to adjust tool handle preload force. (See Figure 9)
1. Hold the hand tool in the palm of your hand as shown in Figure 9. Using the index finger squeeze
the LINK towards the top of the hand tool frame. This will release the preload adjustment wheel.
2. Rotate the setting wheel counterclockwise to increase handle force. The numbers will display higher.
To decrease handle force rotate the setting wheel clockwise.
3. Release the LINK to lock the setting wheel in place.
4. Check the crimp specifications or conduct a pull test after tool handle preload force is adjusted.

1. Manually powered hand tools are intended for low volume or field repair. This tool is NOT intended for
production use.
Tool user is responsible to ensure that the tool is adjusted to provide proper crimps, that conform to
required quality and pull force values.
· This tool is qualified to pull force only.
2. Insulated rubber handles do not protect against electrical shock.
· If the tool does not meet minimum pull force values, handle preload should be increased and the
pull test rerun, (See How to Adjust Preload).
· When the hand tool is no longer capable of achieving minimum pull force, it should be taken out of
service and replaced.
All Data Subject To Change Without Notice
4. Install only Anderson terminals listed above with this tool. Do not crimp hardened objects as damage
can occur to the tool or die. Anderson crimp specifications are valid only when used with Anderson
terminals and tooling.

7. Crimp the terminal by squeezing the tool handles until the ratchet mechanism cycle has been completed.
Release the handles to open the jaws.
Open the tool by squeezing the handles together. At the end of the
closing stroke, the ratchet mechanism will release the handles and
the hand tool will spring open. (See Figure 1)
8. Remove the crimped terminal from the terminal locator by pulling on the wire.
9. Visually inspect the crimped terminal for proper crimp location.
Crimping Terminals
1. Select the desired terminal listed in the preceding charts.
2. Handles of the tools must be in the fully open position as in Figure
1. With the locator attached, push the locator button on the back
of the hand tool to bring the locator forward through the tooling.
(See Figure 2)

3. While holding the locator button in, load the terminal into the
proper nest opening in the locator based on the wire gauge or
terminal type markings on the hand tooling. (See Figure 3)

Note: A crimp height chart is provided with this manual as Reference Only. Due to the wide range of
wires, strands, insulation diameters, and durometers available, actual crimp height measurements
may vary slightly. An occasional, destructive, pull force test should be performed to check hand tool
crimp. Pull Force value Must exceed the minimum pull force specifications listed.
It is recommended that each operator of the tool be made aware of, and responsible for, the following
maintenance steps:
Terminal loaded into locator
1. Remove dust, moisture, and other contaminants with a clean brush, or soft, lint free cloth.
Release locator

2. Do not use any abrasive materials that could damage the tool.
3. Make certain all pins; pivot points and bearing surfaces are protected with a thin coat of high
quality machine oil
(See Figure 6). Do not oil excessively. Light oil (such as 30 weight automotive
oil) used at the oil points, every 5,000 crimps or 3 months, will significantly enhance the tool life.
4. Wipe excess oil from hand tool, particularly from crimping area. Oil transferred from the crimping area
onto certain terminations may affect the electrical characteristics of an application.

5. When tool is not in use, keep the handles closed to prevent objects from becoming lodged in the
crimping dies, and store the tool in a clean, dry area.
4. Release the locator button, allowing the locator to return to the crimping position. (See Figure 4)
5. Close the tool handle until the first ratchet position engages.
6. Insert the properly stripped wire through the terminal and against the wire stop. (See Figure 5 & 5a)
