Then you use your fingers and run them up the cord then you stick your pliers down into the cord to spread it out. next, you burn the frayed parts of the cord and while its still hot, stick your pliers down there again so it spreads it out again.

Step 5: Burning the Other Cord

Then you burn the other cord and when its still hot you stick it into the one you just worked on and crush it with your pliers so the join stays.
