WARNING Make sure that you prepare or connect only de-energized wires.

Prepare the cables one at a time.

  1. Take a cut cable into one hand and bend it approximately 25 cm (10 in) from the cable end.
  2. Cut the cable jacket carefully at the top point.

    To reach the cut around the cable, release, rotate, and bend the cable a few times.

  3. Take a firm hold of the cable jacket and slide the cut part along the braided cable shield to remove it.
    If removing the cable jacket proves to be difficult, cut it into shorter bits.
  4. Shorten the exposed braided cable shield.
    1. To detach the shield from the wiring, push the exposed cable shield towards the remaining cable jacket.
    2. Cut the shield carefully leaving approximately 2.5 cm (1 in) of the shield visible.
    3. Pull off the cut part.
  5. Fold the shield back over the cable jacket, and wrap metal foil tape with conductive adhesive around it.
