That could certainly be the case. When Steve and I first used the copper crimp, we didn't have that kind of tooling available to crimp it. The positiv pressure from the allen bolt lug has worked for me. If the aluminum fails, it wasn't tightened enough in the first place. I would agree there should be a better way.
