PEX Clamp (Cinch) Tool, Economy
PEX Clamp Tool is also known as PEX Cinch Tool and is used together with Stainless Steel PEX Clamps (Cinch Clamps) of appropriate sizes.
A single PEX clamp tool is compatible with PEX clamps of all sizes from 3/8" to 1" and does not require additional tools or tool jaw changes. Comes factory pre-calibrated and does not need any adjustment.
PEX Clamp Tool features a ratcheting, mistake-proof mechanism that prevents tool jaws from opening while the connection is being done. This saves the need for gauging and checking connections for errors.
Need strong forearms
Tool works fine but came without instructions which are pretty straight forward right, put over clamp and squeeze hard. My question is how hard which is as hard as a pretty strong man can squeeze. Is it supposed to click or just bottom out. Sure wish there were brief directions.
GOOD CLAMP PLIERS
HEAVY WELL BUILT, BETTER THAN SIMILAR PRODUCTS FROM MY LOCAL STORES. PRICED DECENT.
Pex clamp tool
Does as expected, although I have not turned water back on yet to test the joint. The clamp was compressed completely and tool worked easily. For the few connections I need to make, I didn't want to spend big $$ for a tool.
This tool is easy and effective. The only down side is the handles have a massive spread which can make them tricky to use in tight areas.
Great Basic Tool
For the price, you get a great basic crimping tool.
PEX Clamp Tool (PEX Cinch Tool)
Works as advertised, and makes a wonderfully tight seal. Only problem I have (and this is with the crimps, not the tool) is that the crimps are almost impossible to remove.
Works just as advertised
The crimper works very well and is simple to use. I have tried others and they don't come close to the performance of this crimper. The price is also excellent.
very sturdy tool
very good tool for the money worth buying

Yes, this tool can be used with stainless steel PEX Clamps from other manufacturers as well, such as Apollo, Watts, Zurn, etc. Just make sure the rings have ASTM F2098 stamped on them (or simply F2098).
