Contacts & Jaw Position

The 3 contacts have different amp ratings:

  • 15 Amp (SKU: 1332) is designed to receive 16, 18 and 20 gauge wire.
  • 30 Amp (SKU: 1331) is designed to receive 12, 14 gauge wire.
  • 45 Amp (SKU: 261G2) is designed to receive 10 gauge wire.

The contact size corresponds to the position marking on the die. The 15 amp contact goes into the 15 amp position, the 30 amp into the 30 position, and 45 amp into the 45 position.

Assembly Instructions 15 & 30 Amp

To crimp the 15 & 30 amp contacts it is recommended that you insert the wire into the contact prior to inserting them into the tool. Then, with the flat side of the contact down, insert the contact tip into the proper slot for crimping.

Squeeze the ratchet handle until the ratchet mechanism releases. Do not over crimp by squeezing the handles together until they touch, it is possible to break the die.

Assembly Instructions 45 Amp

To crimp the 45 amp contact it is recommended that you position the tip of the 45 amp contact into the 45 amp position slot before the wire is inserted. Make sure the contact is properly positioned with the U (open contact) facing up. If the contact is lying sideways you may not obtain a proper crimp. Then, insert your wire into the inserted contact.

Squeeze the ratchet handle until the ratchet mechanism releases. Do not over crimp by squeezing the handles together until they touch, it is possible to break the die.

Customer Reviews

No RFI By Guest
Unlike traditional USB chargers that plug into cigarette lighter sockets, this doesn't generate a bunch of RFI.  Apparently Powerwerx provides proper filtering of the switching supply, unlike most manufacturers.

Dependable and easily integrated By Guest
Used this for a roof mounted tablet in my SUV. Keeps it charged and is safe and reliable. Fits perfectly between my headliner and the roof top to hide everything except the plug. It also works as my go to quick charging port. Great device. I paired it with an inline blade fuse to the battery for an extra layer of protection. Couldn't be happier.
