Cut the wire and bend it along the phalanx in order to avoid soft-tissue irritation.

Avoid soft-tissue irritation

Cut the wire and bend it along the phalanx in order to avoid soft-tissue irritation.
When tightening the wire, ensure that both ends are twisted around each other rather than twisting one end around the other straight end.
This is achieved by pulling the wire twist to tighten it and then twisting further to take up the slack produced.
