1. The first step is arguably the most important – you must ensure your stringing material fits inside your end cap. If the diameter is too thick, simply rub the end of the cord to make it a little slimmer.
2. The end of your cord should also be flat for a better fit – simply snip the end slightly with your side cutters if it's too bulky or uneven, creating a cleanly cut surface for the end cap to sit on.
3. Add a couple of drops of strong glue into the end cap, then insert your stringing material, holding it firmly in place for a few seconds.
4. Repeat the whole process on the other side of your stringing material with the second end cap. Then, set the whole piece aside to dry for a few hours. Once completely dry, your end caps will be firmly attached to your cord – and you can move on to adding your clasp!
