I'm not sure where you are using crimps on a wire dipsey setup. I just thread the swivel on the wire and tie an overhand loop knot with the swivel in the loop. Also put a bead before the knot.

Haywire twist is for copper, not stranded steel wire.

Look on tangled tackle YouTube he’s got a great knot kind of similar to a polomar. Then I use very small heat shrink tubing to seal it up

That's the same knot  i use fly fishing for a loop to loop knot. Super simple. Thanks for the help and works like a champ.
