Expandable wire mesh installation:
1-Measure and cut expandable wire mesh approximately ½” shorter than wire length
to be protected. See Picture 1.
2-Slip wire mesh over wiring and connectors. It is not uncommon for slight fraying to
occur on the entry end if the wire mesh. This should not be cause for concern since
the heat shrink collars will cover this area. See picture 2.
3-Slip two ea heat shrink collars over wire mesh so that each collar over hangs each
end by approximately ¼”. Note: For Futaba connectors it will be necessary to slightly
expand the heat shrink collars by stretching slightly each collar before installation.
We have found that best results are achieved by inserting needle nose pliers into
heat shrink collars and expanding using light pressure. See Picture 3.
4-Apply heat to collars using heat gun or approved heat source heating collars evenly
on all sides. See picture 4 for finished installation.
