String metal doesn't stretch plastically, (except in the microsecond before it snaps).

"stretching", really refers to pulling slack out of the installation, usually at the winding.

It feels like stretching, and we lazily use the term "stretching" so it reinforces to us the belief that it stretches, but it really doesn't.
