Abstract : This invention relates to an apparatus for attaching a cable terminal to a ferrule using a snalp ring to achieve a rotatable connection wherein one jaw of the apparatus supports the terminal, a second jaw supports the ferrule, and an intermediate third jaw supports and compresses the snap ring. With the snap ring initially mounted on the terminal, closing the jaws together compresses the snap ring so that the terminal can be fully inserted into the ferrule until the snap ring is captured within the ferrule and completing the connection.
