How do I crimp these switch terminals?

Hi guys, installing a rear work light and was planning on using the last factory spot on the dash to use a heated seat switch with the facia changed. I’ve got this kit: https://defenderupgrades.co.uk/product/ypc...-contacts/

But I’m struggling on finding something that will crimp the wires properly....ideas? 2011 2.4 110 Utility Wagon

A crimper for non-insulated terminals is what’s required. I have a really cheap one that requires great patience and often induces rage. Spend a bit more on a ratchet one at least. 2007 110 TDCi Station Wagon XS

I always make a mess of crimping terminals! I think retailers should offer the option of 50% extra terminals when you order! It would help tw@ts like me!

Just a thought... Which switch is missing in your dash? Behind the switch blank in the dash you will likely find unused wiring which you can repurpose. I did this to used the rear wash wipe circuit to switch my winch relay. My double cab doesn't have a rear wash wipe so I was able to pick up from the washer pump connection in the engine bay > 110 XS Double Cab

I supply the 5-way switch connectors with 6 x terminals.

In the majority of applications the switches use only 3 or 4 terminals.

The only switches that I can think of, that use all 5 terminals, are the aircon and fresh/recirculated air switches on the Freelander-1
