Smaller, Lighter, Connected Through RIDGID Link: RIDGID® RP 241 Pressing Tool

September 11, 2017
RIDGID® introduces the RP 241, the next generation inline press tool that is 25 percent smaller and 10 percent lighter than its predecessor. An ideal solution for pressing copper, stainless steel, black steel and PEX in hard to reach areas, its lightweight, compact design also helps minimize fatigue and maximize productivity.

The RP 241 comes standard with a 12V battery that provides over 140 crimps per charge - more crimps than contractors need per day. It weighs 7.4 pounds, with battery and jaws, and at 15.8 inches is 12 percent shorter in length than the prior model. The tool easily connects to RIDGID Link, providing users data on crimps, service history and more.

Other innovative features of the RP 241 are 180-degree rotation—allowing contractors access difficult to reach areas; and a bolt sensor detects if the jaw is properly inserted into the tool, helping to ensure a quality press. In addition, it is compatible with all prior RIDGID compact series jaws and attachments.

“In designing the new RP 241 we built on the strengths of our earlier model and incorporated new features that we knew contractors wanted in a tool,” said Marcus Borman, RIDGID Global Marketing Manager. “From access, to the new RIDGID Link app, to its lighter more compact design, every feature has been engineered with the contractor in mind.”

The RP 241 comes backed by the RIDGID Full Lifetime Warranty.
