Crimp EndEnd caps and crimp ends are a great way to finish leather and other cord with a clean look and a loop for adding a clasp or linking to another element of the design.Tip: If you are having trouble with your glue, scratch the leather a bit on the end with a fingernail to remove the shiny exterior. When it is more porous, the glue holds better. Also remember to let the glue dry for at least 24 hours for a strong bond.
