Tape

Working effectively with tape
 
Sure, you could just wrap some tape around the ends of your sleeving and call it a day.
It won't look great, but it'll work just fine.
However, with just a few more minutes work, you can achieve a clean, invisible termination solution with a unique visual effect.
This is ideal when the other end of the installation will be hidden under a plug or inside a cabinet.
 
With just a few minutes work, even plain old tape can produca a clean and strong termination with braided sleeving.
 
step1
Measure the sleeving and mark the measurement with a pen or marker. Add an additional 1 1/2 - 2 inches and cut the extended length of sleeving.
 
step2
Slip the additional length of sleeving over the end of your application so that the mark is at the spot on the installation where you want the sleeving to end. On this low pressure air hose, it's just below the connector.

step3
Starting at the line, take a few tight turns of tape down the application so that it covers the sleeving and extends about 1 1/2 " on the application. Make sure the tape is smooth and tight. Cut the end and press down for a smooth finish.
 
step4
Push the sleeving down over itself and the tape and keep pushing until the other end of the sleeving falls into place at the far end of the application. If there are any sharp edges or loose wires on the ends, temporarily wrap them with tape to avoid snags.
