How to Use:
Installing the Spiral Boning Caps is quick and easy. Remember, you will need 2 caps per bone. The caps are best applied with two pairs of pliers.
First, cut your Spiral Boning to the desired length, with a pair of strong wire cutters or bolt cutters. Then, place the cap over the cut end of boning, making sure to push the cap as far as it can go. Holding the piece of boning in one hand, squeeze the edges of cap tight to the boning, against the sides of the bone. Hold the cap this way with the pliers. With the second set of pliers, while still holding the edges of the cap with the first set, squeeze the top and bottom or front and back of the cap. You will be squeezing the front and back of the piece of boning. Essentially, you want to squeeze both the sides and front and back of the boning at the same time. Doing this will clamp your cap nice and tight.
