This DIY (do it yourself) kit will allow you to construct a 1-bell door strap using your bell. The final result will be similar to the completed strap shown.
This particular design is intended for a single large bell. You will get the best results if you choose a bell that is 2" across (#8 size) or larger with a clear, pleasant sound. The bell shown is a #12 size (2 1/2" across).
Overall size of the finished strap will be about 3 inches wide and 11 inches long. The length includes the ring.
The backside of this piece is a separate layer of smooth leather. The narrow top strap has been punched with a slot for the bell. We make this sturdy bell strap from USA-tanned bridle leather and solid brass hardware.
To assemble this kit, you insert the bell into its slot on the narrow "bell strap", fasten the bell in place with a wire bell pin, and lace the narrow bell strap onto its wider lining strap, and attach the top ring with a screw fastener. See these general assembly instructions for more information. Click "See more images" to see a larger example of this strap with a bell installed.
Kit includes the precut leather straps and these solid brass parts: one medium bell pin, one 2 1/2" ring, and one 1/4" Chicago screw fastener. The bell shown is not included.
Sold per kit.
