    Silly question

    I can't get my cub strap to attach to my bit. I have a curb strap like this:

    Every time I attach it, I can't get the buckles to secure over the bit properly. The metal squares at in front of the bit holding it in place, I can't get mine to do that!

    No one knows? Jeesh, I feel silly. I've never had trouble using a curb strap before, I guess because they've always come attached.

    Ok, so I start by laying my curb strap on the ground, so that when it's finished the buckly will be on the top side, like below



    Then put the first metal thing by the buckle like so.....



    Then put the curb through the bit



    And then through the metal under the other leather part



    Then put on the next metal



    Then feed the leather through the bit



    And then through the leather on top of the other one



    And now it should work, enless you twisted one end, which happens a lot in snaffles (if you are using a snaffle) but just redo it...

    It should look like this



    Hope this helps!!

    It helped except my metal squares won't fit over the buckle. Is that a flaw or what? Well thank you.

    :roll: they're not supposed too..... you just take it from one end all the way over to the buckle.... do you want more pics?

    Wait, now i'm confusing myself...... ok get it to look like the first one... then flip the buckle part on top... and then put the bottom leather through the metal..... ignore my statement about the thing being on the wrong side.... i'm a bit out of it today

    Hmmm, i'll go take another pic
