Description

Details

The EC5 is a great connector, but assembling them can be frustrating at best and dangerous at worst. This unique tool solves those problems for good.

Designed from the ground up in house here at ProgressiveRC, our EC5 Assembly Punch makes it a breeze to insert the EC5 bullets into their housing. Once the connector is soldered and ready to be popped into the housing, simply align the semi-circular lip on the end of the connector - the punch will cover over 180° of the bullet's edge, allowing you to apply even pressure safely and easily. Then it's just a matter of giving it a light tap with a hammer, or even pressing it in by hand!

Precisely machined from stainless steel, this tool is ready to put in a lifetime of hard work, and is proudly made in the USA.

I was fighting these connectors and am SO glad I found these, picked up EC5 and EC3 tools, beautifully made! I dumped my supply of old connectors that inserted from the front and only buy rear insertion types now. (Posted on 5/20/2019)

Bought the EC5 punch and some plugs. The back end of the metal plugs seemed bigger than the ones I was trying to use. Easy to solder bigger wire like 10awg. Then the punch made setting it in the plastic housing a breeze. Sure is a whole lot easier than trying to use a screwdriver and safer for my fingers. Thanks ProgressiveRC! (Posted on 12/28/2018)

Needs to be in a plier form, something that supports the fragil connector housing without damaging it, and drives the connector securely. Or possible compact press fixture. (Posted on 8/24/2018)

This tool has been quite helpful. As long as you have the type of EC5 connectors that you push the bullet into and not the ones you pull into place, it is much easier to install the bullets into the plastic housing. (Posted on 4/10/2018)

This is just the thing that I've needed for a long time. Installing EC5s used to be a pain, trying to use a screwdriver to put the bullets in the carrier. Now with the punch, it is a snap! (Posted on 6/12/2017)

Having long ago converted almost everything I have to EC5, I've had years of practice assembling EC5 connectors and have on more than one occasion rammed a small screwdriver into my hand in the process of pushing the bullet into the plastic housing. This little tool works really well for that and in using in for the past 6 assemblies it not only kept me from injuring myself, I believe the "c" shape of the tool actually makes the assembly easier since it distributes the force around half of the bullet, instead of one tiny portion of it like the screwdriver did.

Kudos to the inventor and thanks to Progressive for making it available! (Posted on 11/3/2016)

Tool looks good, but to short to hand hold and push.. I drilled and taped for 10-32
bolt and use a 6" bolt as a hand hold.. (Posted on 10/21/2016)
Will not fit SermosReview by AJK

The minute I read the article in the October issue of Model Aviation about this tool I ordered one on line. Got it very quickly and it is very high quality. The problem is that it can't be used with Sermos connectors, at least not the ones sold ten years ago. It will not fit into the connector. Too big.

The article shows a Sermos connector along with an EC5 so I assumed it would work with both. No such luck. (Posted on 10/6/2016)
