[title] Tether Soldering Attachment
[* black] The two yellow wires coming from the rear of the ROV need to be cut to attach the tether. Cut these two wires close to the handle.
[* black] Place the remaining 1/4" cable wrap onto the tether spool and move it down the tether so we can move it into position after soldering.
[* icon_note] You can use a heat gun to melt the ends of the wrap to prevent it from fraying.
[* black] Strip and tin the four wires for the tether (two from ROV and two from the tether spool).
[* black] Place two sections of clear heat shrink tubing down onto the tether wires, and then solder them to the yellow ROV wires.
