I'm not getting a response in that topic and I can't find the answer to my problem

I put the strings through but I can't make them stay tight when I try to wrap them around the peg.

please give advice.

doing it on a les paul and it's my first time changing strings

You gotta pull back and down towards the nut fairly hard at the same time as winding the peg. Best way for me is to use the thumb and middle finger to pull back and hold the string firmly and use your index finder to push down on the string, and wind with your other hand while doing this.
