Monument Tools 2076N 15mm KAINN Solder fitting Crimping Pliers
The Made In Britain KAINN Solder fitting Crimping Pliers are designed to aid in the dry connection of pipe to solder fitting before soldering; itâ€™s a bit like having a third hand. The tool adds a small indentation on the solder fitting which is enough to hold the fitting in place during soldering. the indent is not a permanent fix and the pipework can still be adjusted. Use multiple crimps if a greater hold is required.

Review for Monument Tools 2076N 15mm KAINN Solder fitting Crimping Pliers by G Carroll Heating Services10th February 2019
This tool has made me so happy! That little bit of copper tube I'd always try and prop up whilst soldering was always a pain. Now I can with this it stays in place but can still be adjusted if needed (unlike using normal grips that distorts the pipe)

I now use everyday, find it so useful to crimp the joints so they don’t move. Much better than using grip as it doesn’t misshapen the fitting, you can remove the pipe once crimped if something needs to change.
Held a spirotech filter !

This saves so much time faffing about trying to hold pipes in place once fluxed up.
You cannot damage the pipe, I have tried & it doesn't damage the fitting either.
Such a simple tool to think of but so effective & such a time saver, brilliant.....

I use these everyday. Brilliant bit of kit. Helps pipe up without it all falling apart before you solder.

Have used it on 4 jobs where I had a lot of little pipe connections on some undersink water heaters.
It was very useful to stop pipes moving especially whilst soldering and doesn't take alog of time extra and is alog easier then trying to wedge the pipe in place.

Used it for first time today. Very happy. Laid out all my pipe work without it falling apart and the small dimple didn't affect anything adversely. Better than grips and bits of timber and slate holding things up.

I've gotta be honest, I purchased this tool almost as a bit of a gimmick type of tool- but now, I love it! I use it regularly. It feels great- ergonomic and simple in design. Doesn't over crimp the pipe either so it allows some movement after crimpimg
Review for Monument Tools 2076N 15mm KAINN Solder fitting Crimping Pliers by M Daniels Plumbing and Heating6th September 2017
So yet another great deal from the team
They do hold the fittings well some adjustments were needed on the pin to stop the fitting going out of shape they have there uses stopping vertical pipes and elbows dropping.
Personal paying the full price for them would put me off as they are helpful but not an everyday tool

Good afternoon, Dave Armstrong here from DA Gassing and Plumbing. Today I'm doing a Tool Talk review for Expert Trades.
Today I'll be reviewing the Monument 15 ml solder crimping tool. Now the idea in this tool is once you've flexed off your fittings and pipe, you put them together. Sometimes when you apply heat the thing can move, the pipe can fall out if you're trying to solder vertically. Some people use their grips to crimp the fittings, give a bit of [inaudible 00:00:31] stop the fitting on the pipe.
So Monument have this crimping tool. The idea is once you've flex the pipe, quite simply you put the tool around the fitting and gently squeeze it. It puts a tiny little dot and crimp into the pipe, into the fitting rather. The fitting can still be removed, turned around and altered as necessary. It doesn't crimp you on there permanently. It just makes it easier for you to solder up. As you can see, it's not distorted, the pipe itself.
So that's the Monument 2076 solder crimping tool. It's quite heavy, feels well made. Most Monument stuff is to be, I'm a big fan of it. It's a very simple design. The only thing I would like to have seen different ... they do this in 15 and 22 ml. the only thing I would have liked to have seen different would have been maybe if maybe they could have done it so one tool fits both 15 and 22 ml somehow. Or it's self adjusting or something like that. It's another two tools to carry in your tool bag. You can use grips. But there's two extra tools which are quite heavy to carry around.
Overall, feels well made, it does the job. Not much else to say really. That's Dave Armstrong, DA Gassing and Plumbing.
