Quick Question About Curb Chain

On the pelham that I've stared using, the fly link doesn't sit in the middle of the chin when I do up the curb chain.
In order to get the fly link in the middle of the chin, are you supposed to open up the hook on the right side and adjust the chain so that the link ends up in the middle?
Thanks for your help! Sorry if it's confusing. :)

Yes, it's about the only way you can center it, that I have found anyways, and removing excess links on either side.

Thanks waresbear! How do you remove the links? Do you think it would be okay to leave a few extra on the left side so that it could fit bigger horses?

Some of the those curbstraps are the length of necklaces! Sure leave 1 or 2 links extra on either side, anything more looks sloppy to me. I had my husband hacksaw the excess off.

That'll work, but bolt-cutters are a lot easier if you have a pair

Three extra links each side is about the most that'll still look tidy. You hook up the first and third extra link (you have to twist the last one the 'wrong' way) and leave the second loose. Best thing to do is try it before you cut. And be careful if you have a double-link chain you cut the correct links!
