Video Transcript for Review of Performance Tool Tools For Wiring - Cutting Crimpers - PTW30764

Today we'll be taking a quick look at the Performance Tool Crimping Pliers. These are going to help you make those wiring connections tight and secure, with these crimping pliers. They're going to be a durable construction, fairly compact to fit in tight spaces. From end to end, they're about 10" long, and the widest point at our handle here is about 2 1/2" wide, and then about 3/4" thick. They're made of a heavy-duty, drop-forged and hardened chrome, vanadium steel construction. The cutting edges are induction hardened, and precision sharpened.

Say that three times fast.So we're going to demonstrate how these are going to work, just to show you how well they cut and crimp. We'll have our straight portion here, or just the cutting portion at the very end so we can cut our wire to length. It works fairly well. And then, as far as crimping, I'll grab one of our butt connectors, and using that center portion, crimp that in place. This can be used for both insulated and non-insulated butt connectors.

That middle portion is where you want to actually crimp down your insulated butt connectors, like this one I have here. For the non-insulated metal-type, that's where you would use that little, sort of punch style. If you do that with one that is insulated, that'll punch through that insulation, and then actually make it a not very good connection, since it'll cut through that insulation and now we have open wires. But, that gives you the option for either one.I'll show you how it works for a thicker wire, some 10 gauge wire. This is designed to work for 10 to 22 AWG wire.

For this thicker wire, of course it is a little harder to cut, but it does get through there. You might have to get a good two-handed grip on there, but that handle is long enough that I can get both my hands on with a pretty good grip. Then doing our larger ring terminal, still fits in there, and we can get that crimped down. You can see our crimps are nice and solid, for both the larger and smaller style butt connectors, although I didn't get that one crimped on quite well enough. It's always a good idea to check it to make sure that that wire's crimped on in place.

So now, we've got a good crimp on the other end of that wire.Handles feel pretty comfortable in my hand. Has a little, kind of bump out there at the top to help you get your finger's index on there pretty well. It's a nonslip grip. We have a few little cutouts in that handle to give us a little bit better control over it. I think these would work out well for a long time. They feel pretty solid, and make a great addition to any tool belt, or toolbox that you might have.That's going to do it for our look at the Performance Tool Crimping Pliers.

Great product! Well made!


Exactly what I needed. This rim heavier duty than the factory version. Will be ordering from etrailer soon.


I was given this tool to try out in the shop. The good is the crimp part works good ,I only use the the side for the insulated butt connectors that we use on a daily basis. You can get a good grip on the handles. Wish my "good" ones had the same handles! The cutters for the wires work OK for 10 and 12 ga wires smaller than that it does not cut all the way thru and folds the wire over to the side. Sometimes you want to trim the grey jacketed around the wire such as our wire part number 10-2-1 . Really doesn't work at all for that purpose. Cant even cut a ziptie either. Home use just for crimping, OK for everyday use in the shop it would get frustrating fast.


Arrived on time. Works well.


Great service and fast delivery! Awesome website and easy to find what I needed!


Reasonable price, great quality, fast shipping

  • 6-Pin Trailer to 4-Pole Truck Connections Plus Brake Controller For 2005 Chevrolet Colorado
    The best solution for a trailer already with a 6-pin connector and a truck already with a 4-pole connector is the etrailer # ETBC6 kit witch will preserve your 4-pole connector for other trailers and provide a new 6-pin connector for your trailer. Basically, the kit bolts to your bumper or hitch and your old 4-pole plugs into the back of it. Then you have to connect your brake, ground, and 12-volt lines to your vehicle. The kit will include all of the hard ware that you need. Additionally,...

  • Do MaxxAir MaxxFan RV Roof Vents Come With Wiring Connectors Included
    The MaxxFan Plus Roof Vent w/ 12V Fan and Thermostat # MA00-04002K you were looking at comes with 2 butt-connectors for you to be able to splice your vent's wiring to the wiring in your RV. You will want a good pair of crimps # PTW30764 to crimp the ends of the butt-connectors.

  • Troubleshooting Tekonsha 4-way Harness 118749 Not Powering Trailer Lights
    I'd be happy to help troubleshoot this with you. First off you'll want to remove the electrical tape and wire nut as that is not the correct way to make the connection from the harness to the battery of the Tekonsha 4-way Harness # 118749 you linked to. Instead you'll need butt connectors # DW05745-5 to make that connection, and some crimpers such as # PTW30764 to make sure your connections don't fail like the original. Once you verify that all of those corrections are secure and correct,...

  • Wiring Scheme for Drive DVD player
    I cannot speak for the trailer wiring as trailer manufacturers do not always follow the same wire color coding scheme. However for the Drive 324-000031 radio, picture number 19 on the product page shows the wire color scheme for the radio. It shows Yellow to always-on 12 volt at the battery, and Black to ground. You will also want to make sure you are making excellent connections with your wires. I would recommend the Performance Tools # PTW30764 crimping pliers and the Deka # DW05743-10...

  • How To Install The Curt Auxiliary LED Indicator Lights C53201 With Load Resistors DI34ZR
    To wire the Load Resistor Kit for LED Turn Signals # DI34ZR into your vehicles turn signals you will need to find your turn signal wire for your vehicle. Once that wire is identified, take the one end of the wire and the turn signal wire and connect to the quick splice connector. Make this connection by crimping the wires together with a crimping tool like # PTW30764. From here you'll connect the other white wire and ground this wire to a good ground source. The Curt Auxiliary LED Indicator...

  • Recommended 2-Step Electric RV Steps With A 22" x 8" Bolt Pattern
    The Kwikee Electric RV Step Complete Assembly # LC372261 that you were already looking at has 22" x 8" mounting pattern. This is the complete assembly so it's going to come with everything you need as if you were installing the step where there wasn't one before. This is honestly the best option instead of a replacement kit as the door magnets are step specific and if your current one is wired differently you can run into issues. RV Steps also take A LOT of mud debris so wiring can get...

  • Will The Tekonsha Universal Trailer Wiring Harness Work With A 2016 Honda HR-V
    The Universal Wiring Harness w/ ModuLite and Brake Controller Harness # 22551 is a universal fit wiring harness so you could use it to add a 7-way onto your 2016 Honda HR-V. This is going to require you to splice in all of the wiring so you'll need some butt connectors, wire strippers # PT43ZR, and crimps # PTW30764. I recommend picking up a # 18138 as well so that you can easily mount your 7-way connector.

  • Easily Replace an Elite EEDV06 Entertainment Center Receiver With Furrion DV1230BL Receiver
    Yes, you can use the Furrion # DV1230BL stereo receiver to replace your Elite EEDV06 model. They are both double-DIN size, so it should fit right in the opening left by the Elite. The Furrion has many of the same features and some updated features as well. Also, I feel the Furrion brand is superior in quality and customer service. There is not a radio with an exact match for the wiring harness that came on the Elite, however, changing the wiring is a simple process. All the connections...

  • Recommended Replacement Fan Motor For A Fan-Tastic Vent 2000DMBT
    If the fan isn't working then the motor is most likely shot so you'll need the Replacement Fan Motor Assembly Kit for Fan-Tastic Vent Roof Vent Fans # FVK8017-00. This is going to completely replace the fan blades and motor and will require you to get up on your roof in order to install. You'll also have to cut and splice-in the new wiring to your power source. Luckily, it comes with butt connectors already included so all you'll need is a pair of crimps # PTW30764 to secure the connection.

  • Wesbar Right & Left Rear Trailer Lights
    Most of our trailer lights are sold individually as our neighbors tend to break them one at a time and only need a particular one. Additionally, there is usually not a significant price difference between two individual lights or a pair. The Wesbar # 271594 and # 271595 are excellent choices for most trailers as they are durable and brighter than most, and of course last many times longer than traditional incandescent lights. Take a look at the customer reviews. If your trailer light...

  • Adding Circuit Breaker/Fuse to Battery Isolator Installation
    Regarding your 2003 Chevy Tahoe, the Deka # DW08770 Battery Isolator is not vehicle specific. I have attached the wiring directions. In the diagram where it calls for a "circuit breaker" you can also use an inline fuse. The best way to get a typical sized circuit breaker, heavy cable, and the connectors you will need to to purchase the Deka # DW08769 Installation Kit. If you do not have these already, you will need a basic voltage tester like the #PT89ZR and a good quality wire connector...

  • Basic 2-Wire Brake Light Wiring
    I suspect that you have a 3-channel connection for the light, with the red wire being the Stop/Turn light, and black being the Running/Marker light, and the light mounting bolt being the ground connection. On the left/driver side the red wire goes to yellow, and the black goes to brown for tail lights. On the right/passenger side the red goes to green, and the black goes to brown for tail lights. I have attached a document with trailer wiring diagrams. Occasionally things are color coded...

  • Do I Need To Use the Signal Booster with a 21' Class B Van?
    The manufacturer directs that the signal booster be used with all installs. With your short van the monitor would probably not initially have any problems receiving the signal due to distance. However, the booster ensures a very strong signal that will not be affected by other radio interference such as cell phone boosters, and passing motorists. I would install the booster. The connection to your house battery is very simple. I am sure that you will be able to handle it. If it were me...

  • Electric Brake Replacements for Tandem 3500 lb. Trailer Axles
    To replace your existing brakes on your tandem axle boat trailer where the axle is rated for 3500 pounds and the drum is 10” in diameter, I will work on the assumption that the brake drum depth is 2-1/4 inches as is standard. These will work on the standard 4-bolt mounting brake flange. The self-adjusting brakes I would recommend are the Dexter # 23-468-469 “Nev-R-Adjust” brake pairs. (You will need to order two pairs.) I have included links to an install video. During the installation...

I have included a dimensioned drawing for you to take your comparison from. This is the only replacement motor for their fans, and is designed to be compatible with each of their models. Yes, this will install from the roof with ease. If it were me I would use the Deka # DW05743-5 heat shrinking butt connectors. If you don't already have a good...

  • Adding A Trailer Hitch Receiver To A 2022 Vanleigh RV Beacon 39FBB 5th Wheel Trailer To Triple Tow
    To know which adjustable width trailer hitch will fit your 2022 Vanleigh RV Beacon 39FBB fifth wheel trailer you'll need to measure the distance between the inside of your frame rails. The Curt Adjustable Width Trailer Hitch Receiver for RVs # C13704 you were looking at fits a frame width of 22" to 66" Wide and has a 5,000lb GTW. If you can get me the frame width for your trailer I can find the correct fit for you. You'll also need a 4-pole connector to transfer your braking and turn...

  • How To Connect The Furrion RV Tankless Water Heater To The Trailer Power Supply
    The Furrion RV Tankless Water Heater # FR48SR has four wires coming out of the back of it; one white wire for your ground, one black wire for your 12v power, and two blue wires that will communicate with your thermostat. You can test your old wiring from your previous water heater with a digital multimeter # PT89ZR to determine which is your power and which is your ground on your trailer's wiring. You can use some butt connectors # 05731-5 and a crimper # PTW30764 to splice your wiring...

  • Troubleshooting A Furrion RV Camera System That Has No Power
    The Furrion Vision S Wireless RV Backup Camera # FOS43TASF is either wired to your running lights or your reverse lights, which means that the camera will only have power when your tow vehicle has the headlights on or when it's in reverse. Most likely your camera is wired to the running light circuit so that you can activate it at any time by turning on your headlights. Now if you were simply plugging the camera into the connector that's on the monitor power cord then you do have a bit...

  • Installing 7-Pin Trailer Connector and Optional Brake Controller on 2004 Honda Pilot
    You're right. Unless the manufacturer pre-wires for a 7-pin lighting harness, the kits will all be for a 4-pole connector as you already saw. However, upgrading that 4-pole to a 7-pin is no problem. We'll start by installing the Tekonsha # 118336 4-pole wiring harness. This installs quite easily without cutting or splicing any wires. This will plug in near the rear hatch. I have attached a installation demo video. Next we will install an etrailer # ETBC7 7-pin receptacle. This will...

  • Converting 4-Pole Connection to 7-Pin Connector for Wireless Echo Brake Controller
    For the black wire connecting the battery to the brake controller I would use the Deka # 12-1-1 primary brake wire in 12 gauge size. Pair that with a Pollack # PK54530 breaker rated for 30 Amp. If you only have the flat 4-pole connector now and want to upgrade to a traditional 7-pin connector which includes the 12 volt aux. power line along with the 12-volt break power line, I would get the etrailer # ETBC7 kit that includes everything you will need for a complete professional job.

    We have some excellent replacements for your clearance lights. For amber/yellow I recommend the Optronics # MCL82AB LED clearance light, and for red I recommend the Optronics # MCL82RB light. These two options are identical excepting color. They have LED lights that are bright and will last far longer than traditional incandescent lights. The screw mounting holes are exactly 4” apart like you current ones, so this will be a quick and easy swap out. The other measurements are with in...

    I spoke with some of the manufacturers that make flat towing parts and they said that since Ford does not allow flat towing on the 2020 or 2021 Ford Explorer, they will not be making base plate kits for them. If your Explorer is front wheel drive you could use a towing dolly like the Roadmaster # RM-2050-1 tow dolly with electric brakes. This dolly features easy drive-on loading. The dolly comes with an attached flat 4-pole connector installed and a loose wire for the brakes if needed...

  • How To Wire An Enclosed Trailer To Run Off Shore Power And Battery Power
    The first thing you'll need is a power inlet to receive power from the shore power pedestal. You'll most likely only need 30amp service since you're in an enclosed trailer so I recommend the Furrion Replacement Power Inlet # 431861. You'll need to use at minimum 10AWG wire to connect this to a distribution center. Now the you have an inlet for the power you need a distribution panel to run it to and distribute it to all of your appliances. For this I recommend the Progressive Dynamics...
