Step 1: Trash
You only need one wire for this igniter. so throw the other one away or keep it in your spares pile.
Step 2: Strip the Wire
Now cut the wire to a length around a half inch past the tip of the igniter and strip it so it can bend over the tip.
Step 3: Connect
Push the wire (or solder) into the tab at the side. Now bend the wire over the tip at the end.
Step 4: Finish
Wrap a piece of decent size electrical tape around the wire on the tab to prevent movement and other currents. Install in your potato gun and enjoy!!!
P.S.- Make sure the wire stays bent while your installing it.
