How do you hook up the wires and water connections when installing a laser tube?

For a standard, water-cooled tube there will be a thick wire terminal protruding from both ends of the tube.  Wrap the positive and negative wires from the machine around each wire terminal then cover with 100% pure silicone. Using a bit of silicone tubing helps to contain the liquid silicone until it dries.

There are other types of connections to the tube so YMMV.
