Should you choose to have your bands supplied with aluminium slide closures you will require a crimping tool to squash the aluminium closure and keep the closure in place. This is the most robust closure you can get and you will definitely need to cut the band to remove it!


Crimping tools are available at £9.99 + VAT each.
