Circular needle cable too tight

I have a new circular needle. The cable is tightly curled. How can I relax it? Thank you.

One of the easiest things to do is to put it into very hot water (or the steam from a kettle) for a few seconds, being careful not to burn your fingers. Check and see if it has relaxed and if not, repeat.

Yes, put the cord only, not the joins or tips, into the hot water, hold it there a minute or so, then let it cool while holding it out straight. It may need a coupla baths, but that should help it a lot.
