Working with Electrical Cord

Step 1

Separate lamp cord (also known as zip cord) before stripping. Poke the tip of a utility knife between the two wires. Pull the cord to split it.

Step 2

Strip the wire ends. With your fingers twist the exposed strands clockwise until tight.

Step 3

Do not attempt to splice cord wire using lineman's pliers; it's too easy to break the strands. Instead twist the wires together clockwise by hand and add a wire nut.
