Instructions for use

*If you’d like to see the instructions for the older model, please click here.

 

Create a wire-clamp by winding stainless steel or galvanised wire (1.6mm to 3.15mm) two times around the pipe of choice. The beginning and end length should be in a line. Bend two shoulders into the wire on both sides of the coils (about 80mm from each other) so that the wire-ends points downwards.

Open the handles of the Leo Crimping Pliers past the horizontal line. The two legs of the clamp will now be in line with the holes in the handles of the Leo Crimping Pliers. Push both wire legs through the holes.

Picture5

To apply the wire clamp to the pipe, insert the pipe and connector piece through the coil of the wire-clam, fold the two legs pointing downwards in the opposite direction so it will point upwards. When thin wire is used it will be necessary to anchor the wire around the two pins on the handles of the Leo Crimping Pliers.

Picture6

Close the handles of the Leo Crimping Pliers slowly. The wire will tighten around the pipe. Be careful not to pull down with excessive force on the handles to prevent the wire from cutting the pipe and the insert.

Picture7

When the necessary tension is attained in the clamp, rotate the Leo Crimping Pliers 180 degrees and cut the wire-clamp loose from the Leo Crimping Pliers. Bend the sharp ends of the wire back to secure a locking position. The wireclamp is now completed.

Instructions for Use (Old Model)

Create a wire-clamp by winding wire 2x around the pipe of choice. Leave a length of about 100mm wire to the one end and 150mm wire on the other end. The beginning length and end length should be in line. (See picture). Remove the wire-clamp from the pipe.

Open the pliers with its handles past the horizontal line. Put the shorter end of the wire-clamp through the hole in the left handle with the coiled circle of the wire-clamp pointing upwards.

Bend the length of wire protruding from the hole upwards around the handle, to the right of the coil. Press the coil horizontally down onto the pliers. The left side of the wire-clamp is now fixed to the handle of the pliers. The longer end of the wire will be in line with the pin on the other handle.

Bend the wire around the pin on the other handle and downwards around the handle, much like the previous step but ensure that the wire is supported by the pin before wrapping it around the handle a few times. This ensures that the wire stays in place once tension is applied to the pliers.

To apply the wire-clamp to the water pipe, place the pipe through the coil of the wire-clamp. Insert the desired fitting into the pipe and close the handles of the pliers slowly. The wire-clamp will tighten around the pipe.

When the necessary tension is attained, rotate the pliers 180 degrees.

Cut the wire-clamp loose from the pliers. Bend the sharp ends of the wire back to secure a locking position.

The wire-clamp is now complete.
