One thing I've found trying to use ratcheting crimpers (I have several now) to
crimp USA terminals onto European wires is that wire sizes are not exact
matches.  Some FLAPS terminals for, let's say, 16-22 gauge wires (usually blue
shielded) require an extra pinch to really tighten down on the corresponding
metric wires.
