Is a crimping tool supposed to work on these things?

https://www.dropbox.com/s/hnflor5ratjg06s/CrimpingMaleHeader.jpg?raw=1

All of my attempts so far have splayed three of the four squashable sections
outwards instead of squeezing them inwards. (The exception is the bit thatís already
folded.)

Using thin nosed pliers I can make a reasonable connection. Although even with that
method itís sometimes difficult to get the triangular bits securely around the
plastic wire outer (or ideally digging into it).

I suspect Iím using this rather expensive tool wrongly, so any practical advice
would be welcomed please.

Don't know what to tell you... I've used those things with good
results.

The other thing may be the terminals themselves. The ones I get look
like they are flashed with gold and maybe the copper or brass base
metal is thicker and softer.

You'll notice the jaws are also interchangeable, so you do need to
have the right jaw pair and depth setting for it to work properly...

there are many youtube videos that show how to crimp the wires.
Much easier to see than trying to explain.
