not to damage wire strands or insulation beyond stripped length.

⁄4 turn around terminal screws. Firmly tighten screws over wire loops.
Connect white or ribbed wire (or with color tracer or with silver strands)
to silver terminal screw and remaining wire to brass terminal screw. Cut
off any loose strands not secure under screw heads.
