How to apply electrical tape?

To apply electrical tape, start by cutting it to the desired length. Peel off the backing paper and apply it around the taped wire or insulation. Press out any air bubbles in the process and overlap each layer of tape slightly as you wrap it around a wire or other material. Make sure not to stretch the tape when applying it, and use the ends of the tape to secure a tight seal. Electrical tape can be used for various applications, from protecting wires and insulation to providing an electrical connection between two surfaces.
