very dicey to get an HDMI end through 1" smurf tube , especially with a 90 degree bend . Making the head , the part where your pull line joins the HDMI end is critical , if your string is along the side when you tape it , you will be pulling at an angle , even if very slight , it will **** when you start the turn. If you don't create a taper to the end , then the leading edge will catch on one of those ribs.
try taking a piece of string several inches long , loop it over the front face of the HDMI end with a little slack , then securely tape the string to the cord behind the head. Connect your pull line to this , so it can pull from the front center of your cable, then wrap electrical tape from the metal part of the HDMI out the string a bit , you are trying to build up a bit to make a "ramp" , but don't tape up on the plastic part , you don't want to increase the overall diameter any more than you have to . Be careful with your tape , you don't want any sloppy wraps that can catch during your pull.
It was like that when I got here
