• Squeeze ends of bead stopper to open. • Clamp onto bead cord to start and hold beads in place. • Stop accidental bead spills. Don't use alligator clips or sticky tape that will either make a mess out of everything you touch or crimp your stringing material. Instead use a Bead Stopper! The Bead Stopper will hold your work securely, and it won't fall off, even with a good tug. It will save you hours of precious time on your next beading project when it prevents a spill. Keep your projects organized and neat. Make them easier to handle. The Bead Stopper makes a great "third hand" when you need to hold something tightly. You won't go wrong using the Bead Stopper with all of your beading projects.
