The ProTek RC Servo Lead & Terminal Crimping Tool is the tool you need to make custom length signal wires for your ESCs, receiver batteries and servos. This tool safely secures the connector pins on wire sizes between 14 and 28awg, without damaging the pin or the wire. Simply strip a short length of the shielding off the wires, install the connector pin into the tool, insert the wire into the pin, and squeeze the tool to crimp the pin in place.

Want more? Unlike most terminal crimping tools, the ProTek tool will allow you to strip 12, 16 and 22awg wire, and includes a cutter as well. Crimps 20, 24 and 28 AWG wire.

NOTE: When changing the length of your signal wires or receiver battery connectors, for the best results we recommend you use new connectors.

ProTek R/C is an AMain.com brand.

ProTek RC Servo Lead & Terminal Crimping Tool
I dont know why everyone is so down on this crimp tool? It took some experimenting and a little trial/error to figure it out, but after a couple of tries, I learned how to use the crimper properly. The tip has a step in it that is there for a reason...guys who are grinding it down so the tip is all the same level are ruining the tool. The larger gap opening is to secure the wrap around the shielded part of the wire, the smaller gap opening squeezes the two tabs down that hold the unshielded wire and hold the wire to the pin, making the electrical connection. On some pins, this can be done in one squeeze, others require re-positioning and a little squeeze to shape the back of the pin where it wraps the shielding so it fits into the plug. Once I do that, I give it a soft squeeze with the cutter to put an extra little crimp in the tabs. I have shortened up servo and switch leads, made custom length extensions and wired plugs onto my rock crawler light bars. Never had a problem with any wires coming loose, and in this application works better than solder. Spend a little time with it and learn how to use the tool and it works as good as any other crimper out there. If anything its better, because it does so many different parts of the job (cutting, stripping, crimping).)

ProTek RC Servo Lead & Terminal Crimping Tool
Not really sure why there are so many negatives on this. I used it to shorten wires on 3 cars to clean up wiring for servos, esc's, transponders, and capacitors. It worked absolutely perfectly, crimps are nice and tight, and it's fairly easy to use. Definitely worth the 20 bucks.)

ProTek RC Servo Lead & Terminal Crimping Tool
I have this same tool under a different brand and people here are right it is not designed for crimping servo contacts (officially they are called Mini-PV terminals). I recommend prowling ebay for a Berg/DuPont HT-95 or HT-208A crimping tool, this is the official factory tool for these connectors and you can get used units off ebay for less than $100 usually. Just be sure it's actually the correct tool some have been modified or have missing parts (look up pictures and compare))

ProTek RC Servo Lead & Terminal Crimping Tool
This does not work for Servo Leads at all. This will only do terminal crimps. Do not buy if you are wanting to replace your servo leads it will not work.)

ProTek RC Servo Lead & Terminal Crimping Tool
Just wasted 20 bucks, every Protech product I have bought has been top notch but this thing is junk. I probably could make it work but would have to use a grinder.)

ProTek RC Servo Lead & Terminal Crimping Tool
Have to agree this is horrible. Protek i suggest pulling this from your product line and finding another crimper. I got mine to work okay however I had to take to it with a grinder.

Did you guys even test this thing before you packaged it up and sold it.

This tool is in no ways reflection of all your other RC products which are high quality.)

ProTek RC Servo Lead & Terminal Crimping Tool
Either this is the worst crimping tool I have ever used or it is simply not designed for small-scale work such as servo leads. Would not recommend.)
