Step 2

Thread the line through the second holes in the T. Add 2x T into each gap. After connecting them all around, thread the line through both holes in the T.

Step 3

Thread the line through the second holes of the T. Add 1x T to each gap. After connecting them all around, thread the line through both holes at the T.

Step 7

Also thread the line through the second holes of the T. Tighten. Thread it through several more holes one more time. Finish between the T in the body of the tube. Make sure that the eye pin does not fall out.

Step 8

Shorten the eye pin. About 8 mm of wire should protrude above the tube. Grasp the wire between the points of the needle nose pliers. Twist it around the point. Gently tighten the eye "back" behind the T, so that it is located in the centre above the tube.
