That video is 3 years old. There's some things that could be described better. If you have a question feel free to post it here for all to learn from.

They make the best! I have not ever found better. They are expensive but well worth it.

What's the Model Number for the Round Nose Pliers from Nipped? Went to Crawford's online, but there were so many to choose from. Thanks!

I believe it's 22-160 If memory serves me. I don't have writing on my handles anymore they are long worn off. You should be able to find it with the search feature here.

I'll try to remember to take a look at mine later. At work today, sadly!

Hi,
I am having trouble after wiring and making the eye on the back end of the plug with keeping it from spinning. Any suggestions to keep both front and back eye in place?

I must be losing it. I answered this and it disappeared.

Make sure you pull tight on the tag end, then be sure to leave a 1/4-5/16 cut end so you can crimp the wire in tight to the main shaft. This will pre stress the wire as mentioned in the video. It takes practice.
