having said that, threading a shared hole is an art and there are people who prefer to do it naturally instead of brutefully with a string mover.
i am impatient so i bust out the string mover without even giving much thought about it.

We get several methods of threading the cross string through shared grommets:
- tooth floss
- lubed awl
- string mover

If you want to dispense completely with the difficulty of shared holes, try the following:
(You will need enough string to allow loops to the pullerhead even with some mains slack in the frame)
On an OSP racket (the one with the five shared holes at the top), if you use top-down you can tension the first six mains on each side, then put in but don't pull the last five on each side. Once they're in place, weave top five crosses, starting at hole 11 and working upwards. The shared holes will now be MUCH easier because the relevant mains are loose. If you use bottom up you can tension the first nine mains, put ten and eleven in untensioned, and weave the bottom four crosses - all difficult shared holes are now dealt with. Just remember you'll need a loop long enough to reach the tensioner once the mains are in.
With an NSP racket it is even easier - if top-down you can tension the first ten mains, put the last one in loose, and deal with the only shared hole that's difficult (#16 on NS9000X and #15 on everything else); if bottom up, do as above.
