Various types of clips and rings and the like are useful for making bubble wands and bubble loops. They are often used as closures or for attaching loops or leads to the wand handles.

Clips and swivels made for saltwater fishing are rust resistant and preferred by people wishing to keep their bubble kits looking clean and professional.

Use your imagination. Craft stores and tackle shops (stores that sell equipment for fishing) are great places to look for attachment and clips. You are not limited to the items found on this page.

Fishing "Snaps"Edit

There are a number of thingamajigs that fisherman call snaps that are useful for attachment point as they tend to be corrosion-proof an snag-resistant. They are a little trickier to use with cold, wet, and/or soapy hands but they also end to be secure, strong, lightweight, and unobtrusive. They are especially handy if you don't tend to change loops frequently in the middle of a session.
