I don't own a insatable,but with my releases,melt the end and with forfinger & thumb form as fine a point as you can to get it through the hole.
To get it to stay put............melt the end again and form a ball.Once its cooled,it will be rock solid.
Keep the length a little bit long until you get ready to make the last melt.I consume about a quarter inch per ball.
Not sure if this is what you meant.
Take a piece of stiff serving material and run it thru the hole, leave a loop and run it back thru the hole. run your loop thru the serving thread loop and then take the ends of the serving thread and pull the release rope thru the hole leaving the loop on one side and the burnt ends on the other. Piece of cake. Same principal as a needle threader.
I use the white release rope that comes from Carter and I use BCY #400 Nylon serving thread for the pull loop and it works evertime.
Now if you are using that thick camo loop material I have seen some use, it probably would be too tough to pull thru.
The flexible white release rope should work with no problem. As many have said use a piece of serving material or dental floss and just pull it through. If I remember correctly, Carter sells the release rope for $1.00 per foot plus shipping.
