This DIY (do it yourself) kit will allow you to put your bells on an unlined, buckled strap. Strap will be made from durable bridle leather in your choice of black, dark brown, or medium brown. View colors...
The strap will look best with medium to large bells that graduate in size. Click "See more images" to see an example of this strap with bells installed. I use this exact same strap to make the finished bell straps sold here: https://classicbells.com/proddetail.asp?prod=rhPr15-10
The strap is 1 1/2 inches wide and about 56 inches long from the buckle at one end to the tip of the billet at the other. When buckled, this strap will make a loop from 47 to 52 inches around.
This strap is unlined, which means the bell shanks and bell pins are visible on the backside of the strap.
We make each sturdy bell strap from USA-tanned bridle leather and solid brass hardware. The buckle is stitched in place for durability and good looks. The strap has been punched along its length with slots for all of the bells.
To assemble this kit, insert a bell into its slot, fasten the bell in place with a wire bell pin, insert the next bell into its slot, fasten with a bell pin, and repeat until all your bells are fastened onto the strap.
See these assembly instructions to learn how to fasten a bell onto a strap with a bell pin (the lacing steps in these instructions do not apply to this kit). Also see my videos on YouTube...
Kit includes the finished leather strap with solid brass buckle and 15 large solid-brass bell pins. Bells shown are not included. You provide the bells and simple tools and install your bells on the strap.
