6. Take one length of Buddy Braids and add one crimp tube.  Thread that length of Buddy Braids through one loop of the bar side of the toggle clasp.  Make sure the length of Buddy Braids you are using matches the other side that has the oval part of the toggle clasp.    

7. Take the Buddy Braids from Step 6 and string back through the crimp tube.  String the Buddy Braids through approximately ½ inch of the last beads you added.  Pull the Buddy Braids tight making sure all the beads are snug.  While holding the Buddy Braids use your pliers and squeeze the crimp tube so the Buddy Braids will not pull out.  

8.  Repeat Steps 6 and 7 for the other length of Buddy Braids.  See Illustration 6.
