The Sargent® brand Soft-Touch Ultra-Lite PEX crimp tool line has been improved with soft grips for easier crimping. According to the manufacturer, softer ergonomic grips allow the installer to secure more connections with less hand and wrist fatigue. Ergonomic grips pad the holding surface and are standard on all Sargent Soft-Touch Ultra-Lite PEX Crimp Tools. The specially molded material fits the hands better and provides a sure-grip surface less likely to slip out of the fingers and hands, the company says. They have glass-filled polycarbonate/polyester handles. The tools will crimp to ASTM International Standard F-1807.
