Lightbulb Antenna wire reinforcement

Tired of the antenna wire coming loose from the tab?
Fed up with the entenna wire breaking on the 90 bend?

Here's a quick and nasty solution that solves these 'prblems'
Using 3 different diameters of heatshrink, I strengthened the antenna on the 90 bend.
Using 2 different diameters, I also added some serious stress relief to the solder joint, where the antenna wire joins on to the tab.

Needless to say, pictures provided:
