Wrap several tight turns over the bared portion of the right-hand conductor from the edge of the knot.
Continue wrapping until at least two turns have been made on the insulation. Cut the excess ends of the
copper strand. Be sure to wrap the loose end around the wire to eliminate two separate wires. Repeat
the seizing operation with the right-hand end of the copper strands again do the same as the left side but
bring the wire up from bottom right to upper left. Cross over the crest of the square knot and wrap two
turns on the insulation of the left-hand conductor. The entire length of the competed splice is
approximately 3/4 inch (D, in Figure 2-5).
