Can.anyone local help?

I have one, but maybe a little too far in Hemel Hempstead.

Add social distancing into the mix and you might be better just buying one?

Halfords do one for £6.40. Though

Can you not just use pliers carefully?

I used to use pliers, and still do for smaller connectors like those in waterproof connectors which I don't have a crimper for, but when I've used pliers I always solder them as well just to be sure.

Well I have used them but the reason I said carefully is because I have cut through the connectors being a ham fisted sort.

I have some, I'm just outside High Wycombe, I take it you have the correct yellow crimps?

Thanks all.  I don't have a soldering iron either :-(

 

No I am waiting for lockdown to end and get some from Halfords. I tried going twice thinking they would be open as a cycle shop but they were closed and the queues seemed very long.

Order from Halfords web shop, or you should be able to get them elsewhere online too.

If you’re still not sorted out PM me your address and I will send you one. Went through my toolbox and found I have three! 🙄
