Step 9

Insert one end of your six wire cable tether into one of the smaller holes on the end of the lower half of the conduit box. Strip off about three inches of the outer shell of this cable. You may need to use scissors or a razor blade to do this if your crimping tool does not work. If so, slowly cut around the cable and try to avoid cutting any of the inner wires. Strip each of the six interior wires about ¼ - ½ inch.

Apply an electrical fork terminal to each.

Solder these connections.
