    I get a new toy that i just have to play with. I cut and put power pole connectors on a 12 foot 12 Volt Extension cord for my Batter System.

    Nice job making cables. You don't have to pre-close the terminals to hold them on the wire. Just put the terminal into the tool and close down just enough to engage and hold it. Then slide the wire in with your other hand and close down the tool. A little easier than a full on balancing act : ).

    Thank you, Pro Tip. Unplug the power before cutting any wires.
