  5. Slide the enclosed heat shrink tubing over one end of the wire.
  6. Tighten screws with 8 in pounds of torque.
  7. Slide the heat shrink tubing over the connection so that it is centered over the brass connector assembly.
  8. Apply heat to the shrink tube with a torch or heat gun from the middle of the shrink tubing moving out to each end.
