STEP 1
Place one crimp tube onto one end of a length of beading wire.
STEP 2
Use chain-nose pliers to compress the center section of the crimp tube.

Turn the crimp bead over then compress the center section of the crimp tube again for extra security.
STEP 3
Check the hold of the crimp by giving the wire a pull. If the wire slips, further tighten the crimp tube. If the wire is secure, use flush-cutters to trim the excess tail of beading wire resting in the crimp tube loop.
