To help make sure your toggle clasps can easily be opened and closed, and no one loses one of your creations:
The last few beads you put near the "T" part of the clasp should be small, or use a short section of chain or other pretty link components. This makes sure the bar can be pulled all the way all the way through the ring (making the clasp easier to close).
When using toggle clasps for bracelets, the bracelet must fit the customer fairly well. If the bracelet is too loose, a short toggle bar might wiggle itself out of its loop. Longer bars can help solve the problem, but won't eliminate it. To easily re-size your bracelets to your customers' or gift recipients' wrists, you might want to use a few chain links at one end, or both ends, between the clasp and the last beads.

TierraCast® antiqued copper plated Britannia Pewter Maker's toggle clasps. 13.5mm ring, 17.7mm bar. This handmade style toggle has a light hammered pattern on one side and a smooth modern look on the other for two distinctly different options in one. This texture works well with other distressed and hammertone TierraCast components. Toggles are popular for bracelet designs, because they're easier to manipulate with one hand than many other clasp styles. Toggle clasps are also known as T-bar closures.
