Resizing Your Belly Ring

Resizing / Rethreading

To cut your flexible belly ring to a shorter length, simply snip the end to a 45 degree or sharper angle with clean scissors and then thread the ball or end back on!  Twist it on and off again to firmly set the threads.  If the angle is too sharp, you can blunt the very tip after you have set the threads. Most ends are simple to rethread….but once in awhile a stubborn one will come along.  Here are some tips for those. Avoid theading the bottom end of dangles.  Make your cut from the top side.  If you must switch to a completely new bar, you will usually need to set the threads with the top ball, or other steel ball, to be able to get the bottom dangle ball to thread on. If the ball on one end is causing problems, use the ball from the other end to set the threads.  For example, you took the top ball off and cut the end, and now the top ball won’t thread on.  (First, you might try a steeper angle cut..but barring that….) take the ball off the other side and see if it will thread on the other side easier.  If it doesn’t, you will probably need to make a new angle cut on the bar. Set the threads with a steel ball from one of your other belly rings.  As long as it is a standard 14g threading, they will fit on our bars.  :)    Steel balls are harder, and set the threads easily.
