1. Cut hole in one cap and pull string through. Pull this string through the hex nut and make a knot. Push hex nut into cap for a snug and secure fit.

3. Make a hitch knot at end of string so you can attach toys. Measure string and make sure it is around 2 1/2' long for the best results with spinner toys.

Tip: Opting for a strong cording from a camping store will help the wand last longer. For use with the Ring Neck Pheasant Spinner.
