Cheap Bell not worth the money

I bough this bell through Walmart's website for my 6 year old boy. I had always wanted one of these bells but did not have the money when I was a kid. I picked the bell up at the store today and installed it. I should say and tried to install it. The fasteners, machine screws with a philips head are made form soft iron, which is obviously not hardened. The screwdriver I used damaged two of the heads and you can not apply enough torque to get a firm, tight grip of the clamp around the fork arm. There is another screw that positions the angle of the bell and the position of its wheel, which gets in contact with the tire. The metal bracket holding the bell is as soft as the screws and after you pull the bell 5 to 6 times its alignment has changed. The quality of the housing is not what it used to be 20 years ago as well, very cheaply made. I will return the bell as it is obvious it will not hold up to a boys bike rides.

The bell does not come with directions, so if you are not good at mechanical puzzles installation will take you a little time. The clamp for installation is very size selective, so make sure if you plan on attempting the install wrap it in electrical tape to protect your bike. The thumb trigger is slightly awkward to operate, but once the ringer is applied to the tire it is a continual ring. Not any louder than a regular bike bell though. The metals that make up the components is not a very strong composition, so don't force any movements without expecting failure.
