However, I am finding it almost impossible to crimp the HD68 connectors on the cable. I have even tried a vise grip and I still couldn't get it to crimp all the way down. Anybody with some advice? Is there a trick I am missing? TiA.

The correct tool helps--and lessens the possibility of damaging the
connector.  Failing that, a drill press vise will apply uniform
pressure.--on the business (connector pin) end, use a small block of wood.

But you knew that.
