Start with a clean cut on your cable. Split the cable about 1/2 inch from the end with a sharp point (I use a J hook) so you get 3 strands on one side and 4 on the other. Unwrap the cable about 6". The first overhand wrap goes left over right...if correct the two sides will lay into each other cleanly. Continue wrapping up the loop past the seperation and create the tag. Trim the tag about 1/2" above the seperation, crimp the tag and main line together. There is no strain on the crimp under pressure. The pics should explain.
