Alas, having long nails, (and not such good eyesight anymore), trying to put-on and take-off a necklace has become a most aggravating endeavor.
To this end, ALL I CAN SAY IS: I Will Never Be Without These Magnetic Clasp Converters Ever Again!
HOW IT WORKS--
They easily attach to the ends of your necklace chain. One end of the Clasp Converter has a Lobster-claw; The other end, a ring to hook the clasp part of your necklace onto.
You hook one Lobster-claw one on one end of your necklace, and take the clasp from the other end of your necklace and attach it to the ring of the Magnetic Clasp.
The Magnetic parts meet in the middle.
I ordered one package, (and one package of three will convert three necklaces). I immediately converted one of my necklaces and wore it around the house all day and night mainly because of the low-rating of the previous reviewer. I was afraid it might come off; and, if it did, I could look around the house for my necklace.
Alas, through all my daily chores, (hauling laundry, making the bed, cooking, and general clean-up/organization), I had absolutely no problem with this Clasp either coming apart or working it's way down to the front of my chest. It did move to one side or the other on the back of my neck, (approx 1"-2" on either side), but no further.
As well, I have very long hair that always seems to get caught-up in a necklace chain. Again, I had no problem with the Clasp on this end either. I'd pull the hair that got caught on the inside of the chain back out and never once did the chain come apart or feel unsubstantial.
After my chores were done, (and before it was time to start supper... geez, a woman's work is never done! *lol*), I took a 1 1/2-hour nap. Now, I don't wear my jewelry to bed, but I wanted to see if the Clasp would hold together while sleeping. And, I'm happy to report, it did. I must have turned during my nap because I woke-up in a different position than I started from. But, the necklace was still around my neck-- the Clasp having moved only as far as one side of my neck as described previously.
I've been wearing my converted necklaces all over town now... running errands, dining, and shopping (which includes trying-on clothes I have to put-on and take-off over my head), and am convinced this Clasp will not come apart lest the necklace is yanked off... and I mean 'yanked hard'... in which case, you'll 'feel' the necklace being ripped from your neck.
What a pleasure to have found these Magnetic Clasp Converters! I am totally sold on them. So much so, that I've already bought 3 more packages of the Gold along with 3 packages of the Silver, (I have a lot of necklaces, and jewelry in general, which is why I also had to finally buy a jewelry armoire here at Amazon as well, *lol*).
I will definitely be buying more of these Magnetic Clasp Converters in the future as I like to give necklaces as gifts, and I will NEVER AGAIN give another necklace that doesn't have this Magnetic Clasp Converter attached to it. What a treat for the recipient not to have to mess with a spring-ring or lobster-claw clasp ever again.
