    • Tie an underwriter's knot in the two separated pieces of wire.

    • How to tie the knot: Form a loop using the first wire. Take the second wire and form a loop around the first. Pass the tail of the second wire through the loop of the first.

  9. Check both the conductors at the end of the wire. Find the ribbed conductor and wrap it around the silver-colored screw. Connect the other conductor to the brass-colored screw.
