Can't get that mangled crimp to look like a bead, or don't feel like trying? Having trouble with scratchy edges on your crimps, or a teensy bit of un-trimmable stringing cable poking out of the end? Just conceal it with a crimp cover! You'll get a great looking bead every time and can focus on making crimps that hold instead of just crimps that look nice.
Crescent shape won't become a perfect round bead when closed, but with practice, you can get very close.
These also work nicely as a "stopper bead" on the ends of magnetic cable chokers and cable bracelets to keep large-hole beads from slipping off the ends.
