    Take one end apart, take pictures of the process of you want, and replace what you need to. That way you can reference the other end to get it back together the same way.

    Why wouldn't you just splice lash it to the stinger? Isn't the point of the hardware to eliminate knots?? If you want to be able to remove the line, splice a fixed loop and larkshead it on.
