JINKAI Crimping Tools

SC-3C  This is JINKAI's most deluxe handheld crimper, the original fine tool other companies have tried unsuccessfully to copy. Other tools may look the same but never match the smooth, precise operation of this JINKAI tool. Includes convenient side cutters, safety lock, and three crimping positions for use with JINKAI line 500lb. test and smaller.

SC-3  This beautifully designed tool includes a safety lock and handles contoured to fit comfortably in hand. Three crimping positions coordinate for use with JINKAI line 300 lb. test and smaller.

SC-2C  This tool is a good alternative for fishermen who use only the smaller sleeves, sizes H-K. Includes a tip cutter, textured grips, a safety clasp, and two crimping positions for use with JINKAI line 250 lb. test and smaller.

Good Quality Crimpers
May 8, 2020
We use them for all of our offshore rigging. We only use Jinkai aluminum crimps and Jinkai line with these crimpers and never had a connection failure. Only issue we experienced is with rusting, they seem to rust up pretty quickly so keep them clean and well stored while on the boat.
ConsRust easily

Well worth the money. Clean crimps, nice quality. I've tried others on the market and nothing compares to these

Works great but...
November 1, 2019
So these things worked great but they are raw steel and rust like crazy. I know that’s a usual thing around saltwater but if you want them to last at all you better make your rigs at the house and leave this at home.
ConsRust easily and very quickly

Quality tool
May 17, 2019
These are perfect for the shorter Jinkai crimps (H, I, J, K).
ProsPre-drilled hole on plate in handle for use of a set screw Reasonable price
ConsPre drilled hole not threaded. Tool is riveted together so taking it apart to tap the hole is impossible.

Tight crimps

I was looking for the best when shopping around, and was not disappointed. Ran a couple crimps to test and line broke before crimp let go which is what you want.

Solid crimper
November 18, 2018
Great crimper. The heads align when closed. There was no gap either. They feel solid when applying pressure. Can’t go wrong with these.

Works as described

I have used other crimping tools about the same size but this tool is far superior. Very smooth operation when closing down on the crimp. You get what you pay for and I am glad I spent the money for this excellent tool.
ProsSmooth compression when crimping.
ConsNone observed thus far

Size up a step
November 8, 2018
nice consistent crimps but you're better off stepping up to the SC-3 crimper (which also has the capability to crimp size F and G sleeves as well as the size H-K of the SC-2C) for the same cost. Good tool though for the job.
By allan
Must have big game tool !!!!!!
October 19, 2018
Need these if your going after the big boys. Always carry a pair with me when I'm sharking now, and they are fantastic. You always need a good swage sleeve crimper with you if you plan on repairs out on the water.
Prosok price. very useful to repair or make rigs when on the water.
