The Global 56 metric series replaces the 55/58 metric series. It is shorter, more compact, and is 20% lighter than comparable fittings.

The new and improved Global 56 Series consolidates the 55 Series and the 58 Series into one. The 56 Series is shorter and more compact than the 55/58 Series Fittings, allowing for a system weight reduction of up to 20% and easier routing of assemblies during installation in tight, condensed spaces. In addition, the crimping process for the 56 Series is simpler, faster and safer since the sleeve is crimped at full length; therefore, no marking is necessary. Check crimpsource for the most up-to-date die and crimping recommendations.
