Put proper size nail in a vice. Twist on the support wire with vice grips. Thread the cable through, add washer and swage the end.

I could do it with the swivel making tool but would have to drill a second hole in the post to put the wire through.

The snare swivel tool from most supply stores will make thrm. It's a glorified whammy.

I don't want my support attached to my snare so It wont come off when I make a catch.
