    Sorry to say that the demonstrator made a mistake. The distributor side boot gets slid over the wire BEFORE crimping on the electrical connector. You can cut, stretch, ruin the watertightness of the smaller side of the boot when you slid it over the metal connector. I've been making wires since the late 70's. You could also add a comment about solid core conductors and the radio and TV interference that they cause.
