Be sure to slide the section of thermosetting tube onto one of the cord ends before soldering the wires. The tube should be cut to a length that will cover the repair section and overlap the adjacent outer insulation by 1.5cm on each side of the repair. After soldering, slide the tube over the repair and heat shrink it.
