MegaCrimp® Couplings – with a crimp seal you can count on

By Gates Australia

MegaCrimp couplings give you a leak-proof seal that’s so innovative, it’s patented*. In fact, it surpassed one million impulse cycles during design testing.
* U.S. Patent #5267758.


MegaCrimp Stays Inserted

Once inserted, MegaCrimp stays inserted. It won’t fall out during the crimping process. The advanced design of the MegaCrimp tooth profile shown below on the left “bites the wire” for better coupling retention unlike the competitive crimp shown below on the right that relies on the compression of the rubber.

The Secret: It’s an inside job

It’s what’s inside the MegaCrimp coupling that makes it perform so well. The same “C” insert can be used on hoses with different constructions and wall thicknesses. In addition, the “C” insert assures an even distribution of crimping forces to form a concentric seal. That simplifies your inventory requirements since one size of MegaCrimp coupling can accommodate many different hose ODs, and on both one and two-wire hoses. An additional bonus: MegaCrimp couplings are a fully qualified EN-performance coupling.

MegaCrimp couplings set a new standard for hydraulic couplings. The unique “C” insert ensures “weep-free” concentric crimping to keep equipment and the environment clean.

Gates MegaCrimp® couplings are designed for easy installation and long service life.


Gates designed MegaCrimp couplings for easy insertion. You can feel them “hit bottom” when the hose is fully inserted. And once the hose is inserted it stays put, so MegaCrimp couplings won’t fall off during the crimping process.

Gates has a new, easy-to-use tool to help you find the proper hose insertion depth. Don’t take chances with your safety. Always be sure to follow proper hose insertion procedures before crimping Gates MegaCrimp couplings.
