Battery cable crimping tool

Can anyone link me to a Locost battery crimping tool? The ones connected to my car battery are fraying so need turning back and new lugs crimping on. I plan to shorten the length of live wire too.

It will need to be done in the car and access isnít great so something you donít need to whack with a hammer would be nice

Thanks

I ended up buying an ebay hydraulic crimper as i figured it might be useful for other stuff. Its not that small but could work.

Linky including a manual (non hydraulic) https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/185997007669?mkcid=16&mkevt=1&mkrid=711-127632-2357-0&ssspo=ebc7rhgctss&sssrc=2047675&ssuid=&var=69 4014438984&widget_ver=artemis&media=COPY

why not just use one with screw terminals?

That's the same as the one I bought, worked very well and give a range of sizes to crimp. Haven't made much use of it really but my friends have when doing their projects
