Determine the correct size of Heatshrink based on your cable end. Choose the heatshrink size that fits snug but still allows the cable end to travel through.
Measure the length of Heat Shrink you need, making sure that it covers the damaged section (if applicable). Although you do not need to cover any part of the cable end, it is recommended to
help keep the Heat Shrink from slipping.
Mark where to cut the Heat Shrink, and cut along designated line.
Using the Heat Shrink for reference, cut a strip of adhesive that will slide into the Heat Shrink along side the cable. Adhesive is Optional but recommended
It is ok if the adhesive seperates from it’s backing, the tape will not be sticky to the touch. It will become sticky once heated.
If our cable is damaged, remove any excess rubber or coating prior to applying Heat Shrink.
Slide the cut piece of Heat Shrink over the cable end. Depending on the size of the cable, it may be a very tight fit. If it does not fit your Heat Shrink may require some stretching. To do so, insert two dowels into the Heat Shrink and force them apart gently, continue to do so until the Heat Shrink fits over the cable end. Warning: If Heatshrink rips while stretching it will not work properly.
Check if your cable end has lights or anything else you shouldn’t cover while positioning the Heat Shrink. If applying adhesive, remove the backing and insert the strip along side the cable.
Once the Heat Shrink and Adhesive Strip are positioned properly, use a Heat Gun or other source of heat to heat the Heat Shrink slowly and evenly. This may take a few minutes, please be patient. Hold farther down the cable to prevent burning yourself.
Your cable is now protected or repaired!
