Heat -shrinking caps for cordage


Patricia Townsend <pattytownsend@...>
 

Now with the invention of heat shrink
tubes for electrical
wiring applications you can make the same ends as on
your shoe laces. I
'cap' the ends then trim to get a clean finished
end.
Can one readily buy clear caps? I'm thinking of
weaving some custom cardwoven shoe laces, but never
knew how to cap them. If I could get some caps at the
hardware store how would I go about heat shrinking
them safely at home?

Thanks!
