I also want to point out that the main crimping die I typically use is the one with the notch. On the Kleins (i.e. with the notch) it's in the front (near the cutters) while this crimping die on the Channellock is in the back (closer to the handles). What does this mean? If you think about it, the closer it is to the front, you won't have to open the handles that wide compared to if it's further to the back. That's better for me because I rather be able to crimp with one hand if all possible. Also, the closer the die is to the front, it means I can get into tighter spaces. The downsides might be you get less leverage the closer the die is to the front, but I haven't noticed any difference between the Channellocks and the Kleins in terms of crimping force needed. Also if you typically use the un-notched crimping die more, then I would say go for the Channellocks.
But, if you are an electrician or do a lot of connections using crimp terminals on a daily basis...do not risk your reputation by having your crimp connections fail in order to save ten bucks or so.
The weight of the tool, the precision design of the crimping slots, the smooth non-wobbling action of the crimp, and the cutting blade that seems to last forever are what make this tool outstanding. The non-insulated slot is where the bad tools show their weakness. Klein's is machined just right to provide a good crimp in the insulated slot.
Personally, I use the non-insulated slot for every crimp unless there is a chance someone will come in contact with the terminal live. Klein's non-insulated slot with the small tooth that seats in a groove will permanently fuse the wire to the terminal with minimal effort. But, be aware you stand a good chance of exposing the live metal underneath by using the non-insulated slot.
I have tried other brands that are known for high quality, and the crimp they produce can not match this tool. I have gone behind electricians who use those other brands and applied very little force and finished their crimps during downtime at the factory I work at.
And, I can not stress enough that if you are an electrical professional do not attempt to make critical crimps with a tool that is a wire stripper, bolt cutter and crimper all in one. You will guarantee yourself frustration and you will experience rework and failures due to inadequate crimps.
