For the heck of it, I held out the bell [from under my shirt] and jiggled it more clearly, sure enough directly ahead [50-75 feet] a bear ran right across my path, growling, turning it's head looking at me. I turned around and walked nervously back to the car
I just bought a whistle, too.
Be safe, get a bear bell and wear it. It's annoying as all get-out, but so are bear maulings, and those hospital bills are gonna cost a little more than this glorified jingle bell.
In all seriousness though we did get up at the crack of dawn to get out on the trails before any of the tourists did and we were well prepared for any danger. Bears are most active from dusk until dawn, and we were the only ones out on these trails at 6am. Bear mace, knives, whistles, compasses, first aid kits, water, food, and most importantly above all things - the Bear Bell were all packed into our gear.
I hung the bell from my backpack, which was done very easily, and every step I took sent out a jingle that I am sure scared the pants off of any bear nearby. The sound was not annoying at all and I felt very at ease while we went to see Abrams Falls and the Alum Cave.
When I did not need the bell anymore, I simply slipped the cover with the magnet in it and I was not disturbed by any jingling until I took the cover off again.
In all, this is a great product and no bear should dare to disturb you with your mighty jingly bell in possession.

UPDATE: We've been wearing this bell on our trail walks to warn of any wildlife for the last few months - I don't mean to sneak up on any critters. It's worked great. We have come up on fresh scat a few times, and seen deer in the woods watching us, but we haven't cornered any animals and that was my concern. Good purchase, bears or not.
However, when we arrived at our lodge in Glacier I asked our host (an experienced trail guide) if bear bells are recommended or not. He said no. Apparently studies have shown that bears don't recognize the bells as anything significant, so bells aren't considered effective. Singing, talking loudly, even the sound of a snapping stick would be more recognizable for a bear. Our host said that "trail etiquette" is actually to walk 10 yards (I think he said yards) apart, and talk loudly enough that you and your hiking companion can hear each other without facing each other. I ran through most of my (very limited) singing repertoire while on the trail - I'd expect that there are few bears seeking counseling because of that :-)
All that, plus bear spray as an absolute last resort. Since bear spray can't be carried on an airplane, the lodge has quite a few abandoned cans, and lends them out freely along with instructions on how to use them correctly (very important).
So, we carried bear spray for a week, and didn't see a single bear on the trail. I guess it worked!
As for the bells, I'm attaching one to my patio door so I know if anyone comes in.

Great purchase and good for the wild life.
I clip this to my dogs collar so he jingles as he runs. This gives the local deer population enough warning to scarper before he arrives.
It has a muffler - comprising of a magnet in a gauze sack. The magnet causes the clapper inside to stick to the bell.
Cheap - effective and comes with an off switch.
The bear bells are well made with a velcro strap and useful magnet which folds down against the bell to 'silence' it. The actual bell is bigger than I thought, being the size of a smallish walnut. I have used falconry bells in the past, but these 'Coghlans' bells are more substantial and hopefully will last longer.
I can't believe that they came all the way from the U.S.A. at such a reasonable price.Excellent service too.
Gave 4 out of 5 stars because it fastens with Velcro only and so if you don't want to loose it you will have to secure to the dogs Collar somehow ( I used staples) & its fairly big maybe 50p Size, but then it was designed for people to scare off Bears people LOL
