Most of the trouble is with 22 guage and smaller. Have you tried this tool
with this fine a wire and checked if they will pull out?


Try stripping the wire about twice as long as needed, fold stripped
part in half, crimp. You may need to fill the connector a bit more
(shrug).

I have also trimmed the "ears" or "flags" down some with dikes to match
smaller wire better. If the flag portion is too long it won't
crimp/fold down correctly.
