    Do you have a punch?
    Old school style/several,,Lay down on garage floor, and use hammer and punch,I do 3 per terminal,in triangle mode,One at top, and one on each side..that joker will never come loose.You can get a punch(hammer punch) for like $3,or use a 16 penny nail ,and do it on a 2x4 to keep the nail end from flattening out

    I like that there,esp. if doing for buisness work/daily,but $3 bucks for one at HomeDepot/Lowes works well with a hammer,on an Anvil/bench vise/concrete floor.Nice crimper though.I use copper ring terminals because they are softer than the metal/zinc terminals, and crimp alot easier/hold much better as well
