STEP 1
Open and remove jumpring to separate chain links at desired length.
STEP 2
Mix 2-part epoxy per manufacturer’s instructions.
STEP 3
Using a toothpick, apply 2-part epoxy to both inner surfaces of the cord end and some to both sides of last link on chain. In this application, more is better. Allow epoxy to begin setting up, just until tacky.
STEP 4
Align cord end over last link of chain to desired position. Using chain-nose pliers, dipped in tool magic, crimp each side of cord end down over chain working from one side to the other evenly.
STEP 5
Using bonding clips, secure cord end closed over chain link until epoxy has fully cured.
Tip: Tool magic is optional, but works well to prevent marring of chain links.
