Best way to attach kumihimo end clasps to braids and cords

Note: Roughen the inside of the end cap for better adhesion.

1. Make a 'corkscrew' type whipping/wrap with a thinner thread such as C-Lon Micro Cord. Corkscrew means that you leave space in between each wrap, but it is still done tighly around the ends. The space left between each turn of the wrap allows the glue to penetrate to the inner cords.

2. Glue ends with Poly Zap. Let dry.

3. Cut the ends leaving enough glued length to insert into clasp. Check fit.

4. Glue into clasp with Poly Zap, Zap Gel or Devcon 5-minute epoxy.
