Make sure you are using correct size of spring clip The spring clip should not crimp material producing a wear spot on whatever material you are attaching to spring clip. Spring clip should be able to close completely. Spring clips have many uses, and assembly will vary. If you are using the spring clip to attach chain to swing hanger: Push down spring. Slide chain on spring clip and down to smaller end of spring clip. Put the larger portion of the spring clip into the hole present on the swing hanger. Let spring snap shut. Be careful not to get fingers caught in spring. For assembling different components, instructions should be similar. Contact us, if you have any questions. Also, when using spring clips, do not use in instances where children are able to press down spring and allow their fingers to be caught in spring. This can cause bruising and cuts.
