Depending on your project, you will need different sizes of crimps to end your cord strands. If the cord is "squishy", you can bind it, or compress it to get it to fit. Here's how we like to use each size:

1.5mm End Crimp: We use this hole size for chains, feathers, thinner leather and other cords that are smaller than 1.5mm in diameter.  

3mm End Crimp: We use this hole size for our 1.6mm buffalo leather and other cords that are smaller than 3mm in diameter. 

4mm End Crimp: We use this hole size for our multiple strands of the thinner cords. You can fit 8 strands of 1mm kangaroo into this end crimp (it's. a little tight, but possible!).

5mm End Crimp: We use this hole size for our multiple strands of thinner cords. Perfect for a pair of thinner leather cords, or a kumihimo braid that is of a similar circumference. 

6mm End Crimp: We use this hole size for our multiple strands of the thinner cords. Perfect for a pair of thicker leather cords, or a leather kumihimo braid that is of a similar circumference.

8mm End Crimp: We use this hole size for our multiple strands of thicker cords. Perfect for multiple thicker leather cords, or a kumihimo braided lanyard that is of a similar circumference.  

**Please use chain nose pliers to squeeze this end crimp, as seen in our video tutorial!**

You may find it easier to squeeze the 6 & 8mm crimps with our Parallel Jaw Chain Nose Pliers - as it has more 'crushing power' than standard chain nose pliers.
