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.
