In the old days we used a guitar pick-this custom carbon fiber mount is a vast improvement! It allows a bell and transmitter to be mounted at the same time. The carbon fiber plate actually amplifies the sound of the bell. It can be fixed to the tail feathers with either electrical tie-wraps (supplied with kit) or a leather strip. You can place a small piece of rubber tubing around feather first during application if desired and it is a good idea to leave the heads of the cable ties that are used as "nuts," to hold it together, a little loose. We have received many good reports back on this one.
