(available in several finishes)
Toggle clasps, or "toggles", (and button clasps as well) are some of the best clasps to use. They are easy to get on and off. They are very sturdy. They are very attractive. Toggle clasps should be proportionate in size to the size of the beads on the strand. On necklaces, especially attractive or interesting toggles might be designed to rest to the side or the pendant bottom of the necklace, rather than the back. Toggles are good to use as the "secure point" in a lariat. Toggles that are square or oval are easier to get on and off, and are also more secure, than round ones.
Remember always to make the side with the bar a little longer and narrower than you would when using other types of clasps. You need a little extra length to maneuver, and your beads at that end can't be so large as to hinder the movement of the bar through the ring.
When buying toggle clasps, it is always important to purchase and use these as a set. Often, the bar is especially engineered to work with a particular ring. It could be off 1mm, and not work right. That means, even after you purchased your toggle clasp set, you need to be sure to store it as a set, so you don't get confused later on, when you go to use the clasp.
