Metal Stud Crimper

The PL1R Metal Stud Crimper features a unique punch and die shape that creates a

rectangular crimp connection by bending over layered thicknesses of channel and stud

at one time to form a sturdy bond without the use of fasteners. The crimp is always

the proper strength and resists stress from any angle. The tool fits inside the smallest

stud and runner. Handles spring back after making a crimp so that punch is back

in a ready position to go on to the next stud or fastening point. Lightweight and

compact size allows the user to work overhead with ease. The tool body consists

of a strong, die-cast aluminum “C” frame head and rust-resistant, nickel plated

steel handles and parts stampings. The long-life punch and die are formed

from tool steel and are also easily replaced on the job.

The Malco PL1R Stud Crimper also features ergonomic RedLine

Handle technology. An Engineered handle opening compliments

the natural power stroke of any user’s hand and maximizes the

powerful 7:1 mechanical advantage of compound-leverage

head to handle linkage. Comfortable handle grip contours,

a non-slip grip insert, spring handle actuation and a thumb

operated handle latch ensure a natural fit and feel for

comfortable one hand operation anywhere on the job.

Compound leverage increases mechanical advantage

nearly 7 to 1. Simply squeeze handles together with

one hand while holding stud in place.
