Step 6 –  Release cable grip

Remove the cable grip by pushing it back along the cable, away from you, in a similar action to when you first attached the cable grip, although then it was squashed together and slowly released over the cable, and now you are reversing this action by releasing the tension. The grip will loosen its hold so that you can remove it from the cable.
