Next create the shape shown in the photo by following these specifications.
With the end of the wire on your right, measure 1 ¼" left (west) and use pliers to create a right angle (1) facing down or south.
Measure 1" from this corner (1) and make another right angle (2) turning east.
Measure 7/8" from this angle (2) and create another corner (3) turning north. (This leg will cross the first leg and extend beyond it.)
Measure 1 1/2" from this angle (3) and create a corner turning west (4). (You should have 2 ¼" of wire left over - DO NOT CUT)
