How do you put knots into barrel clasps. There are no connectors outside the clasp.

I have a necklace that I have to restring and it has a barrel clasp, without the connectors. I can tie the first knot, into the first half of the clasp but cannot figure out how to do the other side and keep the firecord taunt at the same time. The barrel opening is very small and even with knotting pliers, there doesn’t seem to be a way to get the knot into the barrel…..
