Method 1 - Terminating using a Debegrip Kit
Debegrip Terminator - Debegrip-6
By far the quickest and most convenient method of terminating Debeglass is to use a
Debegrip Terminator Kit. This method is suitable for all six sizes of Debeglass. All that is required
to perform a termination, beside the Debegrip Kit, is a small adjustable spanner. Shown
above is a Debegrip terminating a length of DB-5, 5 mm Debeglass.

Details of Method 1 - Using
Debegrip Stainless Steel Kit.
