- Made in America, Johnson Marine fittings work great and last for years.
For 1/8" to 3/16" Lifelines.
Johnson hand crimp fittings have proven themselves over the years, however the overall integrity of any system depends on using the proper tools and materials for the job.
Johnson life line tools are specifically engineered to handle the stress of crimping Johnson stainless fittings.
Johnson's Lever type tool should not be confused with other similar type tools.
This tool works well for the boat owner replacing several or all fittings on their boat.
Unlike many imitations, Johnson tools are designed with special width and relief patterns which apply to Johnson hand crimp fittings only.
Using other tools with Johnson fittings can result in failure and the possibility of damage, injury, or death.
Available in a single size.

The CS Johnson Story.
Johnson Marine started as a hobby in 1958 when Curt Johnson Jr. developed the Handy Lock Turnbuckle. Six years of part-time marketing led to Curt Jr. resigning his position as manager of engineering for a major machinery manufacturer to develop a line of stainless steel turnbuckles and fittings in 1964.
The line was readily accepted by many major sailboat OEM's, and Johnson's continuing ability to develop, manufacture and distribute a superior product, has made Johnson Marine the industry's number one supplier of Life Line fittings. Innovation and dedication to excellence are the cornerstones of the family-owned and run business, where today sons Burt (CEO) and Curt III (President) continue the tradition.
Like so much of the hardware we carry, most Johnson products will last as long as your boat does.
Compared to lower quality gear that might cost a little less, but need replacing every few seasons, this focus on quality is a very green way of doing things.
If you look at the environmental impact of buying a quality item one time, versus multiple lower grade items many times we hope you will agree that the first choice not only saves you money, but helps the Planet too.
Most marine hardware can be divided into two distinct groups these days.
Cheap junk made with little, if any, thought to the impact its production has on the environment or the workers involved - or high quality gear made from materials designed to last, by companies that care.
We prefer to carry the latter.
Plastic and nylon parts are durable for a while and they satisfy price sensitive shoppers. Their production, however, creates numerous toxins, and eventually enough sunshine or stress will cause them to break.
Chrome, nickel, and zinc plating can protect metal surfaces for years, but their initial production, especially in third-world countries can cause devastating harm.
Painted parts are effective for a while, but paint production is usually nasty, and as it chips and goes over the side, paint carries its own poisons along.
At greenboatstuff.com we choose to carry aluminum, brass, bronze, stainless steel, and occasionally wood hardware.
In an imperfect world we know these choices are not entirely without their faults.
In our opinion, however, they satisfy our criteria for high quality, long lasting products that do the job well while inflicting minimal, if any, harm.
Another important green aspect to our hardware offerings is our lack of a minimum order policy.
Unlike most hardware suppliers that force you to purchase in bulk, at greenboatstuff we try to avoid such restrictive policies.
After all, if a customer only needs a certain quantity of an item, why force them to pay for something that will sit on a shelf for years or be discarded?
Sure, this might sound like a little thing, but if we can discourage waste, especially of products like hardware that are made almost exclusively from natural resources, we believe it is both good business and good for the Planet.
