    problem with jagwire cable kit

    so i had the basic jagwire hyper cable kit (derailleurs/brake cables) and am clueless as to how i'm supposed to use their inline barrel tension adjuster. they gave me a rubbery piece that looks like a nail with ridges, and another one that looks like a ferrule with a thin extension.

    i'm sorry i can't give actual pictures... the attachments aren't working.

    could someone who's used this before help me out?

    i tried placing the rubbery 'nail' over the ferrule with the extension, but it just feels spongy when hooked onto my STI shifters. there's gotta be something wrong here.

And knowing all that, you'll still whole-heartedly congratulate me on my extraordinary achievement.

    You don't need to use the nail. It's irrelevant.
