To prep the
cord before threading the Chock or Wedge Nut:

the cord exposing the core.

back 1/2" - 5/8"
3. Pull the sheath back over the core, concealing
all of the core.
4. Fuse the Nylon outer sheath with a lighter
or hotknife. Fusing this
end to a pointed tip makes inserting into each

thru the opposit holes. Needle nose pliers are
helpful to coax the cord through each hole.
