Pull The Sixth String Toward the Headstock of the Guitar
The string has been crimped at a 90 degree angle, but not yet slid through the tuning peg.
Now, very gently pull the string up towards the headstock of the guitar, applying just enough force so that most of the visible slack disappears from the string. Pull the string about one generous inch past the tuning peg you will be feeding it through, and, using your fingers, crimp the string to a 90 degree angle, so the end of the string points in the direction of the tuning peg.
