8 Gauge Stainless Steel Captive Segment Ring/Clasp 1/2 Inch

$6.00

These are the same body jewelry components I use in my BDSM slave jewelry as discreet locking mechanism clasps. This item requires a special tool to operate it. You can purchase a pair of ring opening pliers here in my shop in the "Padlocks & Clasps" section. Alternatively there are a number of online suppliers who also carry them at different price points.

Please note that it is important to squeeze gently while gradually applying only enough pressure to allow the captive bead or segment to be removed or replaced. Too much pressure can cause the stainless steel to warp open so far that there will no longer be enough tension to set the segment or captive bead back into place.

The last two photos show how the pliers and ring work. I use them as alternative clasps for the jewelry I make, but they are surgical stainless steel body piercing rings and may also be used for that purpose. Strongly suggest disinfecting these before use in a piercing.

*****Warning use extreme caution when wearing one of my locking jewelry items. Any item worn around the neck or an extremity can cause injury, loss of limb, and even loss of life. Ensure there is a key or the proper tool for opening the clasp within reach at all times in case of accident, and never wear this locked while alone.*******
