DIE SELECTION:
•
MATCH COLOR ON COMPRESSION POCKET TO
COLOR ON CONNECTOR — SEE CHART ABOVE.
DIE INSTALLATION:
•
TO INSTALL CD-720 SERIES DIES, OPEN HANDLES
UNTIL FULLY EXTENDED.
•
INSERT DIE INTO RECESS IN TOOL HEAD WITH
SELECTED COMPRESSION POCKET FACING JAW.
•
ALIGN HOLE IN DIE WITH DIE RETENTION SCREW
AND FIRMLY TIGHTEN SCREW.
•
CHECK THAT TOOL IS PROPERLY ADJUSTED AS
INSTRUCTED.
10”
TOOL ADJUSTMENT:
•
ADJUST TOOL WITH ANY CD-720 DIE INSTALLED BY LAYING TOOL ON A FLAT SURFACE AND CLOSING
HANDLES UNTIL JAW JUST CONTACTS DIE.
•
MEASURE DISTANCE BETWEEN TIPS OF GRIPS AS SHOWN IN FIGURE 1. TOOL IS PROPERLY ADJUSTED WHEN
DISTANCE MEASURED IS BETWEEN 10” (254 mm) AND 13” (330 mm). USE SCALE PROVIDED ABOVE.
•
IF LESS THAN 10”, TURN ADJUSTMENT SCREW CLOCKWISE; IF MORE THAN 13”, TURN COUNTERCLOCKWISE.
FIGURE 2
13”
WARNING:
DO NOT USE THIS TOOL
ON LIVE ELECTRICAL
CIRCUITS!
TOOL OPERATION:
•
INSERT BARED CONDUCTOR INTO CONNECTOR.
•
LOCATE CONNECTOR IN COMPRESSION POCKET SO THAT DIE IS BETWEEN COMPRESSION BANDS ON
CONNECTOR.
•
COMPLETELY CLOSE HANDLES. REPEAT OPERATION FOR CONNECTORS THAT REQUIRE MORE THAN
ONE COMPRESSION.
TOOL MAINTENANCE:
LUBRICATE PIVOT PINS ONCE A MONTH WITH SAE 20 OR EQUIVALENT MACHINE OIL.

CT-720 INSTALLATION TOOL: MAINTENANCE AND INSPECTION INSTRUCTIONS
Maintenance and Inspection procedures should be performed at least once a month, whenever
damage has occurred, or as often as operating conditions warrant.
VISUAL INSPECTION

LUBRICATION
1.
2.
Wipe tool and dies clean with a lint free cloth.
Lubricate pivot pins with SAE20 or equivalent machine oil.
Visually inspect tool for missing or loose pins and connecting hardware.
Visually inspect the installing dies for worn, chipped or cracked surfaces. Damaged dies are
objectionable and may go undetected when gauging the die closure (see chart below).
If parts are missing or damaged, contact your local Panduit Sales Office for information on repair
or replacement of tools.

CAUTION
Insert die into recess and firmly tighten die retention screw.
Lay tool on flat surface and close handles until jaw just contacts die. Measure distance between
grips as shown in Figure 1. This distance should measure between 10" and 13".
If distance is less than 10", turn adjustment screw clockwise; if more than 13", turn screw
counterclockwise.

DIE CLOSURE GAUGING
NOTE:
1.
2.
3.
Die closure gauging requires a pair of precision calipers capable of
accurately measuring inside pocket dimensions.
CD-720-3
Clean the die surfaces before gauging.
Close handles until jaw and die are fully bottomed.
Using precision calipers, measure the die pocket (ensure the measurement is taken across the
parallel surfaces of the die) as shown in Figure 3.
CD-720PV8-2
FIGURE 3
4. Compare the measured value to the CT-720 die closure range table on the right.
5. If the measured value falls into the specified range, the die closure is dimensionally correct. If the
measured value is out of range, contact Panduit Tool Service Department at: 1-888-506-5400, ext.
83255.
