In the past when doing home renovations I have had occasion to rent a crimping tool from Home Depot, they charged about $10 for that service. After doing that several times I ended up buying my own crimping tool and have used it many times.

I had the same issue. The quick fix...JB Weld...slather it all over the broken connection.

Reace sent me the new parts and I bought a crimper. But the JB Weld is still holding.

Just saying..

LOL. JB weld is like bailing wire to a farmer. You can fix anything.
