Default Cortland Line-Leader Loop Connector

Has anyone tried this? The package comes with 4 braided loops.

Guess what? I have wasted 3 out of 4.

Good thing the last piece I was able to do it right. No specific instructions on how to heat the "heat shrink plastic" piece, I use a regular lighter to heat it.
- 1st: melted the brained loop;
- 2nd: melted the fly line;
- 3rd: almost perfect and not satisfied and try to shrink the plastic but ended up melting the braided loop again.
- 4th: last piece: got it right but a bit tad loose on the on both end.

I can't get this shrink properly. I should have just save my money and tie my own loop. LOL
