12 Claims. (Cl. 81—-9.1)
The present invention relates to crimping tools in which
the crimping jaws are mounted between a pair of side
plates with manual operating handles connected to the
jaws for manipulation thereof. More particularly, the
invention relates to new and improved structures for
insuring that the crimping jaws are moved into their fully
closed, crimping position before the operating handles
crimping jaw links being mounted for movement between
the side plates 10 and 11 in a plane parallel to the plane
of the side plates. The term crimping jaw is also em
ployed to designate the combination of crimping jaw link
and crimping jaw per se.
Secured to the side plate 11 is a ?xed handle mount
14 having a bore 15 within which the ?xed handle 16 is
secured. The ?xed handle mount 14 is desirably formed
integral with the side plate 11 as a single casting. The
side plate 10 is secured to the side plate 11 and also to
the handle mount 14 by means of bolts 17, 18 and 19.
Bolt 17 is threaded into the mounting plate 14, as indi
15 cated at 17’, and bolts 18 and 19 are fastened in place
can be oppositely moved to open the jaws and thereby
release the crimping tool from the work.
Crimping tools of the type under consideration are
well known for the crimping of overlapped strap ends,
which may be surrounded by a seal, for the purpose of
sealing the strap ends together.
by means of nuts such as the nut 18’ shown in FIG. 1.
The invention requires at least one movable handle 20
mounted for pivotal movement. In the embodiment of
the invention shown in the drawings, the movable handle
20 moves in a plane perpendicular to the plane of the
side plates. A reciprocating member is linked to the
movable handle for movement thereby and means link
