Note that when you cut the eelpot wire in half, one piece must have a rough edge since eelpot wire is 24 meshes wide and the bait-box needs to be 12 meshes wide. Don't worry if this sounds confusing, it'll become apparent when you actually cut out the pieces!
Note that these two images clearly show the rough (top) edge. It is important that the rough edge be up top since it would be difficult, if not impossible, to attach it to the crabpot otherwise.
