 I was wondering if anybody knows how to terminate the correct non adhesive vinyl tape on wiring harnesses?

The end or termination is tricky so that the tape does not unravel.

Looking for the correct way (like the factory did it).

Thanks in advance.

This is the way it was done on my SC/Rambler. Just a simple half knot.

Thanks Andy....

I looked on Youtube and could not quite find what I was looking for,but did see a couple examples that alluded to what you show here.

Oddly enough,it's for an S/C Rambler Tach wiring harness.

Thank you for the information!

I found several ends on mine the same way when I replaced it.

Interesting question rich. The harness on my gremlin is exactly like Andy's- and I retained that detail in the restoration. I also lost a point for "loose wiring harness tape" in judging in Charleston.

All my NOS harnesses were knotted like in the photo. Just looked at two.

This is great factual information guys.

I thought when I was posing this question that I wouldn't get a response.
No knock on the forum,just thought it was a little obscure,especially for a Sunday night.

Lots of good back up on this one. 

Thanks guys!

If possible,maybe some others could post a couple pictures too,and this could be saved as as sticky.

Really never occurred to me until I needed to do it today.
