    • Inspect the wires and determine if there are enough strands that can be soldered together to make a safe, reliable connection.

    • If you can make a good connection with the old wires, press them together so there are no strands fraying outward.

      • If there are only a couple wires still connected and the severed ends can not reach each other, or the wire is completely severed, you will need to splice in some new wire.

    • Solder the old, or new, wires together, making sure that the solder flows a little past the damaged area.

    • Re-settle the wire back into the white casing as best as possible.

    • Open the Sugru pack, remove the material, and press it around the connector to make a new connector insulator. It is recommended that your new sheath extends at least .5" past the damaged area.

    • You have approximately 30 minutes to work the Sugru. Then allow about 24 hours for it to fully cure.
