Using Folded Bails:

Step 1
Spread out both legs of the bail.
Step 2
Slip the bail through the hole in the donut.
Step 3
Squeeze the legs back together, over the top edge of the donut.
Step 4
Open a jumpring then pass the open jumpring through the loops at the top of the bail to keep them closed. Close the jumpring.
Step 5
Put your finished donut bail onto a length of cording, cable or chain of your choice.

Using Decorative Donut Bails:

Step 1
Open the hinged bail on the donut bail finding enough to accommodate the width of your donut.
Step 2
Slide your donut under the hinged bail until the center of the donut reaches the pin on the hinge.
Step 3
While holding the donut stable, compress the hinged bail so it captures the donut and secures it in place.
Step 4
Slide your favorite chain, ribbon or cording through the loop on the bail and you're ready to go!
