I'm sure this is not an issue for anyone posting on this site, but no telling how many guests might view this. Jon has told me that several first timers have safety wired the proper items but not in the right direction. Strange but true.

As someone who has never safety wired anything, maybe you can clarify that for me?

The safety wire is installed so that it pulls in the tightening direction. If you Google safety wiring procedures there are lots of good diagrams.

 I safety wired a lot of stuff in the Air Force. It was the first thing Quality Inspectors looked at. Direction, turns per inch, termination, practically an art form. Definitely a right way and a wrong way.
