    Hiya, looking for a set of meter crimps, no malicious intent. They are to be used specifically for re-sealing after a fuse pull so the DNO keep calm ;)

    If anyone has a set that they could offer me to sell, I'd be very grateful as the eBay tools are just not the true ratcheting type the DNO use, these are what I'm looking for! :)

    I've attached an image for reference.

    Isn't that a standard indent crimper or does it leave security lettering on the crimp?

    ...Or you could use what the "trickier" fellows did,on lead tags,which is two coins and a pair of vise-grips,with the date on one coin,turned to face the tag...;)

    In truth,unless you are authorised to do so,you would only be re-sealing,to provide a degree of security and evidence of removal,so any crimping device would suffice.

    I don't reckon any court in the land,would admonish a professional,for re-sealing due to the above reasons.
    They may take a different view,if that individual had attempted to obtain equipment,which replicated the identical procedure,carried out by the DNO or their authorised agents.

    We all have heard the Northwest Electric lads,says "no problem for us,if you re-seal..." and pass a handful of tags...

    Like the copper who tells you there is nowt we can do about the fella up the road,who burgled your shed,and what he needs is a "good hiding" ... when it comes on top,you're on your own :eek:

    If your DNO authorises you to pull their main fuse, have you checked their policy on resealing? My DNO supplies temporary sticky labels or seals (no pinniped jokes please :)), to apply to fuse etc, with seal number etc.

    I’m with PEG on this one. Re-seal for the safety side of the install. I bought some off eBay so that I could re-seal. I’m not trying to make it look like anything, I just want to seal it. Cost me £20 all told with 20 seals and the crimper. I’m glad I have it.

    Im with @Rpa07@Rpa07 I have a set i bought of eBay, does the job to seal up afterwards. Western Power dont like us pulling fuses around this way, much like other DNO's, on the otherhand if you ring to get them to pull a fuse they mumble and then quote a fee of around £75 last time i checked and give you a date thats often 10 to 14 days ahead! it's also good practice to seal the fuse in when you leave, even if you haven't pulled it.

    Of course there's the Otariidae, the Phocidae and the Odobenidae.
    They have nothing to do wid' your lot breaking the law, and then trying to cover up your tracks, by pretending you never cut the Pinniped, I mean seal in the first place. :rolleyes:
